World renowned chef and humanitarian Jose Andres’ appearance at Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara rescheduled


SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - World-renowned chef and humanitarian José Ramón Andrés' anticipated appearance at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara this weekend has been rescheduled.

According to the UCSB Arts & Lecture Series website, his appearance has been rescheduled to May 23 at 5:30 p.m.

Born in Spain, the Spanish and American chef moved to the United States in the early 1990s.

Since then, he has opened restaurants in several American cities. 

He has won a number of awards, both for his cooking and his humanitarian work. 

Andrés is the founder of World Central Kitchen, a non-profit devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.

He is often credited with bringing the small plates dining concept to America.

Andrés received widespread attention in April 2024, when seven World Central Kitchen workers in Gaza were killed by Israeli military airstrikes during the World Central Kitchen aid convoy attack.

Andrés has dedicated himself to feeding not just the few – at his restaurants – but the many as well. 

Alongside his non-profit organization World Central Kitchen and his hospitality and food media enterprise José Andrés Group, Andrés finds innovative solutions that use the power of food to inspire change and empower communities. 

Andrés embraces the responsibilities of a culinary ambassador and immigrant building bridges between cultures. 

His latest cookbooks include Zaytinya: Delicious Mediterranean Dishes from Greece, Turkey, and Lebanon and The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope. 

A visionary and a humanitarian, Andrés will appear in conversation with KLITE’s Catherine Remak, career broadcaster and recipient of the 2020 Santa Barbara Person of the Year Award.
