José Andrés, is one of the most influential Spanish people at the kitchen in the States as well as one of the greatest ambassadors of Spanish cuisine.
With this award, his cooperation and citizenship labor is recognized in the country that welcomed him when he emigrated from Spain over 20 years ago.
The Spanish Chef, who received U.S. citizenship in 2013, owns several restaurants in the United States and he as well is a founding member of "World Central kitchen", a charitable organization founded after the earthquake in Haiti that cooperates in the fight against hunger in urban areas from Los Angeles, California.
