When the world appears to be falling apart from natural disasters and pandemic, José Andrés seems to keep it together in this inspiring film by Oscar-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind). "I am good in seeing opportunity when others see mayhem," says Andrés in We Feed People. "Very big problems have very simple solutions." And the chef can be seen almost everywhere, from preparing meals in makeshift kitchens to loading food on delivery trucks.

It all began for Andrés in childhood with his role model parents who worked as nurses in a hospital. "I saw nurses and doctors always going the extra mile," Andrés recalls. "Small gestures of empathy," which included reading a book to a child. Those cherished memories still exist today for the married dad of three daughters who loves to cook with his wife and kids at home. "For me, it is very romantic," notes Andrés about making a meal. "After love and time and heat and warmth, at the end you come up with a dish." For viewers, We Feed People is definitely one perfect platter worth savoring.
