José Ramón Andrés Puerta (born 13 July 1969), known as José Andrés, is a Spanish American[1] chef often credited for bringing the small plates dining concept to America.[2] He owns restaurants in Washington DC, Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, South Beach, Dorado and Philadelphia. Andrés is chair of the advisory board for LA Kitchen,[3] a social enterprise in Los Angeles, California that works to reduce food waste, provide job training, and increase access to nutritious food. In September 2016 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal[4]

Beginning in the fall of 2010, Andrés taught a culinary physics course at Harvard University with Ferran Adrià.[6] In May 2012, Andrés was named dean of Spanish Studies at The International Culinary Center, where he and Colman Andrews developed a curriculum in traditional and modern Spanish cuisine, which debuted in February 2013.[7] On 29 October 2012, he announced he was heading back to the classroom, and would teach his first course on how food shapes civilization at George Washington University next year,[8] which awarded him an honorary doctorate degree in public service on 18 May 2014, when he served as university's commencement speaker at the National Mall.[9]
