Good news for foodies.  Not that they really need any these days but ... still.  As Lauren Salkeld reports on the Epicurious blog, Epilog

Jose Andres Foods Launches in the U.S.

And who, you might ask, is José Andrés when he is at home?  Well, as Ms. Salkeld writes, he is 

... a man of many talents. In addition to his restaurants, which number more than a dozen [he is] is a cookbook author and television star.  He's Dean of the Spanish studies program at the International Culinary Center, and lectures on "Science and Cooking" at Harvard; he also founded the nonprofit World Central Kitchen.  Now, with the U.S. launch of José Andrés Foods, the legendary chef can add food purveyor to his resume, perhaps solidifying, once and for all, his status as Spain's culinary ambassador.

Mr. Andrés, one finds later down in the story, has managed the seemingly impossible feat of coming up with a way to can tuna so that it is "moist and meaty, and not at all fishy."

One more reason to hope your kid gets into Harvard.
