Saturday - 5/19/2012, 8:17am  ET

WASHINGTON - Washington chef Jose Andres is being called up to the White House kitchen to serve lunch for the spouses of leaders attending the global economic summit at Camp David.

On Saturday, first lady Michelle Obama hosts the spouses at the White House. Her office says Andres will work with White House chefs to prepare lunch with produce from the White House garden.

Andres is best known for popularizing Spanish tapas, the custom of small, shared dishes. He has gone on to build a small restaurant empire beginning with Jaleo and followed with other eateries around Washington, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

The first lady also will host a tour with the White House curator while the president hosts leaders from the Group of Eight leading industrial nations at Camp David.
