Chef Jose Andres is not shy. Over the years that he’s built his 26-restaurant empire and international non-profit World Central Kitchen, he’s advocated for good food (of course), but also for access to health, education, and jobs in underserved communities, and most recently, for immigration reform. And in a newcandid radio interview, the chef talks about that crazy lawsuit, the new American dream, immigration reform, and big dreams.

Ugh, California just can’t catch a break. After struggling through a four-year drought that threatened everything from wine grapes to avocados, they’ve now been hit with a record amount of rain and it’s threatening almond production and salad greens. (California is a top producer of both.)
The state has gotten almost 30 inches of rain this winter, the most that’s ever been recorded. And that rain is keeping bees from pollinating almond trees and is threatening the production of snacking almonds. Snacking almonds make up 40 percent of California’s $5.3 billion crop.
