Jose Andres Tuna Bien Masabe

Tuna Bien Masabe

Tuna Bien Masabe (Jose Andres) – This is the first in a series of interview/cooking segments featuring Community Leaders in Milwaukee, WI.

I am joined by Wendy Baumann.  Wendy is the President and Chief Visioning Officer for WWBIC which is The Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation.


The video is a short interview with Wendy about her work at WWBIC and then we are going to cook something. In this case, Wendy will be cooking Tuna Bien Masabe, which is a Jose Andres Recipe.

The idea for this interview/cooking segment comes from the HBOMax TV Show Salena+Chef #selenagomez, where Salena Gomez learns to cook, from world-renowned chefs, like Jose Andres, Marcus Samuelson, and Rachel Ray. Towards the end of each show, they talk about the foundation, charity, or non-profit that the chef is involved with.

My idea is slightly different. I will be interviewing community leaders in the non-profit world here in Milwaukee, discussing their roles in being a difference maker, and then we will cook something (their choice). Wendy is our initial guinea pig. She will be the chef and I will be her sous chef.
