Andres – a.k.a. ‘Dre’ – is a Nicaraguan born chef who was raised in the states. He inherited his skills in the kitchen from his grandmother and aunt, but his passion for food was the driving force for making it a career. Creativity in his dishes and preparations set him apart from all the rest, he has a certain joie de vivre or cheerful spirit that is infectious. Dre is a multi-talented individual, and when he’s not in the Kush kitchen he is producing music, songwriting, designing graphics or on the hunt for the perfect pair of Jordans. Music is a lifelong passion for him, and he uses both the kitchen and fresh beats as his canvas for expression.
