Wine Spectator: At ‘We Feed People’ Premiere, Hollywood Celebrates Chef José Andrés And World Central KitchenMay 9, 2022
The red carpet was a steady stream of celebrities and VIPs at Manhattan’s SVA Theater on the night of May 3, each of them eager to see the world premiere of We Feed People, a new documentary about chef José Andrés and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen. Distributed by National Geographic Documentary Films, the project was conceived and directed by Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and will be released May 27 on Disney+.
“I am here for one simple reason,” announced Andrés, the Spain-born chef behind ThinkFoodGroup’s nearly 30 restaurants, including Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence winner Bazaar Meat in Las Vegas. “That is to make sure food is an agent of change.” The documentary chronicles Andrés’ 12-year journey building World Central Kitchen from a grassroots effort to deliver food in crisis zones to a highly efficient global humanitarian organization in the disaster relief sector.
“Serving one humble plate of food is a powerful beginning,” said Andrés, who was recently in Ukraine. “I believe big problems can have very simple solutions.” Wine Spectator has more.—Kristen BielerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
