José And Patricia Andrés: Wedding, Kids
“Someone could make a living picking up everything José loses”, says Patricia Andrés when referring to her husband’s forgetful nature. Patricia says José has been known to leave the house without his shoes on or misplace things, including his car.
Patricia, however, attaining her role of an organized and sensible person in the family takes care of all of it. Because she is aware of José has a lot on his mind — overseeing more than 30 restaurants nationwide and mobilizing disaster relief feeding efforts.
They got married in September 1995. Patricia’s dad had passed away in September a year before. So, they did a small wedding, which is Patricia’s words was “nice.” First, they had a civil marriage in the United States, and later they had gone to Spain for a religious and real wedding with friends and family.
Today, Patricia and José are a family of five with their three daughters, Carlota, 22 ; Ines, 20; and Lucia, 17 (ages as of May 2021).
Talking to Bethesda Magazine about raising their kids, cooking at home, and José’s crazy schedule, the couple shared — all three of their girls went to The Woods Academy in Bethesda. Ines and Lucia attended Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, also in Bethesda. And Carlota, a 2017 Stone Ridge graduate, was a sophomore at New York University, at the time.
Also, at that point, the family lived in Bethesda, Maryland in a contemporary home with a comfortable and earthy interior. In the front yard, they grow their potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, and other produce in raised beds. They also do their own composting and had maintained two beehives.
When asked what it’s like to live with José who is always traveling for work, Patricia shared
“When José is at home, after a few days it’s like: When is your next trip? And then when he leaves, it’s like: When is he coming back? Because when he’s away, my house is quiet. And then he comes back, it’s really fun.”
That been said, Patricia is originally from Asturias in northwestern Spain while José is from Cadiz in the southwest.
