Restaurateur and James Beard award-winning chef José Andrés is adding a new skill to his resume — cooking show host. On March 19, his new show Dinner Party Diaries with José Andrés premieres on Prime Video, where he invites some famous faces, like Bryan Cranston, Jamie Lee Curtis, and O'Shea Jackson Jr., to help him cook up Spanish-inspired dishes and have a laugh while doing so.

Although he's met these celebs before, there was one that really took him by surprise. "Jamie is a very good cook and she takes charge," says Andrés. "You know I cut my finger. It's so funny I don't remember the last time I cut my finger, but we never stopped rolling. Everybody asked ‘Do you want to stop' and I said keep rolling. Jamie helped me get through it live, no cutting." 

Right before filming the show, Curtis took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Everything, Everywhere, All At Once and Andrés called her up, convinced that she would be too busy film. She replied, "What, I win an Oscar and you are firing me?" That's the kind of conversation you'll find throughout the show.

When it comes to hosting dinner parties, Andrés has one tip: keep it simple. "I will always say, don't over complicate it," he says. "I like to eat good food, I like to drink good wine, but even better I like to have a great time." Because to Andrés, it's not about how fancy your tablespace is or how many dishes you cook, instead, "the true success of the party is that you had enough time to enjoy your friends." However, he also shared some of his must-have hosting essentials with us, so you can throw a dinner party as well as the chef himself.

Jose Andres Foods Potato Chips (12 Pack)

"I'm a very big fan of potato chips. I'm a very big fan of any chip," says Andrés. So much so that he's created his very own line with a refreshingly simple ingredient list: extra virgin olive oil, potatoes, and salt.

gimMe Organic Roasted Seaweed Sheets (20 Pack)

If you think, 'Oh my gosh' people are coming over and I have nothing to feed them, Andrés says, "You always have something, it's just the way you think about what you have." He suggests topping these crispy seaweed chips with anything you have at home, like mayo, salmon row, or even leftover chicken.

Williams Sonoma Paella Pan

"Besides my two hands, which are the best cooking tools I have, I would always say...Everybody should have a big paella pan." This 17-inch one the perfect size for whipping up one-pan meals that everyone will enjoy and that won't have you spending the whole dinner party in the kitchen.

Goodful All-In-One Pot

"Everybody should own a very big pot," says Andrés. "You can make rice, you can make the stew, you can make soups, you can sauté, you can make meatballs and you don't have to be using 23 pots and pans." This big one is just what the chef ordered.
