José Andrés's path to citizenship may have been delayed by the shutdown, but after twenty years of living in D.C., it's official. The Jaleo chef and culinary statesman tweeted the news: "People of America! 4 hours ago my wife and I became AMERICAN CITIZENS ... thanks to all for being part of our world!" No chef, thank you.
