Jose Andres Is not Ana Flores’ Husband

Recently I was at an event for PBS. I was sitting at a table with some friends, and my friend Ana Flores came to join us. Ana is a Latina woman whose husband I have never met.

Trust me, this detail matters.

Anna came to the table with a man who was a bit older than she, somewhat paunchy, and clearly Latino. They both greeted my friends like old friends, so I assumed this was her husband. He introduced himself as Jose. I shook his hand and maintained disinterest. It just wasn’t the moment to meet a husband.

This was the late afternoon of a long day and we had a table of girlfriends. I didn’t want to meet anyone’s husband, it wasn’t appropriate and I wasn’t in the mood to meet Ana’s husband, Jose. He kept me on my feet and blocked my seat, so I had him get out of my way a bit.

Jose then left our table and took his place at the podium where he was introduced as Chef Jose Andres. Nice.

  1. HA! I totally had NO idea who he was. I just remember Sarah pushing me aside when I was trying to say hi to all of you so she could get to him. Totally thought he was Sarah´s friend.
    I can just imaging your face when they introduced Chef José Andrés and my “husband” shows up!
    Well, you got to meet the real husband later on and he’s much more fantastic…though I wouldn’t mind if he had Chef Jose Andres’ cooking skills!!!
