D.C.’s own Jose Andres, who owns several restaurants in the
area, including "Oyamel" and "Jaleo," made an appearance on
NBC’S The Today Show Tuesday morning.
Andres was on a cooking segment the show occasionally airs.
Along with Meredith Vieira and Al Roker, Andres made the “Andres family
macaroni and cheese,” with the special ingredient of Greek yogurt. Vieira tried
to no avail to “sound like a Spaniard” when pronouncing Andres’ name, joking
with him and repeatedly saying “Jose!”
Andres mentioned that his macaroni and cheese is a healthy alternative to the traditional dish, particularly in light of First Lady Michelle Obama’s scheduled unveiling of her childhood obesity campaign on Tuesday afternoon.
