World-renowned Chef José Andrés has spent nearly a month in Puerto Rico coordinating a Herculean effort to feed the victims of Hurricane Maria. Last week, Andrés and his non-profit World Central Kitchen served their one-millionth meal in Puerto Rico in less than thirty days, surpassing the likes of the Red Cross. Andrés was in the news last year when Donald Trump sued him for breach of contract after the Spaniard abruptly cancelled plans for a new restaurant inside the latest Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. Andrés said he pulled out in response to Trump’s comments about Mexicans. The lawsuit has since been settled. Puerto Ricans won’t soon forget what Chef Andrés has done to comfort so many people in the American territory’s darkest time.
