I’m beyond honored and delighted to have been able to cook for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House with Chef José Andrés and his incredible team from Oyamel. I had the opportunity to meet President Barack Obama, take an official photo, and chat with him. I was almost speechless! (You know that’s very uncommon for me.)
