“I think the true meaning of leadership is recognizing your weakness, so you can make them your strong points.”

On October 30, we had the pleasure of hosting Chef José Andrés at our 450K location. The conversation moderated by founder Andy Shallal with Chef Andrés, discussed the humbling story of why he went into cooking, the importance of food sourcing, the efforts Chef Andrés and other chefs made in Puerto Rico, his new book We Fed an Island: The True Story of Rebuilding Puerto Rico, One Meal at a Time and so much more.

In case you missed the event, you can check out our Facebook Live to watch the discussion between Chef Andrés and Andy and view photos from the night.

You can also purchase his book at Busboys and Poets Books.
