José Andrés Course

José Andrés, world-renowned Spanish chef and culinary innovator, partnered with GW to create a course that explored the many intersections of food and society. 

Mr. Andrés, serving as Special Advisor to The President of The George Washington University on Food Initiatives, focused his creative spirit to structure the topics and the guest lecturers who helped broaden the minds and expand the experiences of students who chose to participate with vigor in this initial exploration of an exciting interdisciplinary topic.
