José Andrés, born in Asturias, has become a universal chef. While studying he worked at El Bulli and at the age of 21 he left to succeed in the United States where he has several restaurants.
There he founded World Central Kitchen to distribute food in areas affected by catastrophes, such as in Haiti after the earthquake or in La Palma due to the volcano.
His fame in the United States deserved him to be decorated by Obama and appear on Time’s list of the hundred most influential people in the world.
Since the war in Ukraine began, he settled in this country and, with the network of restaurants adhering to his campaign, his organization distributes 300,000 meals a day.
That someone with four Michelin Stars works for the needy deserves applause.
