By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A. Any restaurant from the great Spanish chef Jose Andres here in the United States, especially because he was the first chef in the U.S. to carry my family's delicious Santa Gadea Organic Goat Cheese ( that my mom makes on our farm in Spain. You must try it!

Q. Do you speak any foreign languages?

A. Other than L.A., New York City, Ibiza, Amsterdam, Budapest, Madrid.

Q. What is your guilty pleasure when you're on the road?

A. Finding a place that serves amazing gelato. I always manage to find some wherever I go.
