José Andrés is a Michelin-starred, James Beard Award-winning Spanish-American chef. He is the author of three cookbooks and the New York Times best-selling book We Fed an Island, which describes how Andrés and his team cooked for hundreds of thousands of hungry Americans in Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Andrés advocates for sustainability in the restaurant industry and his line of restaurants include many that are focused on serving sustainably grown and harvested foods.
His newest book Vegetables Unleashed describes how the home cook can approach preparing vegetables in fresh and surprising ways that help to reduce food waste and reduce our carbon footprint. He will appear in conversation with a local Peninsula food personality to discuss his recent work.
