Caribbean Cooking For A Cause
When acclaimed actor and accomplished sailor Morgan Freeman first set eyes on the turquoise ports of the Caribbean, he knew he’d found paradise. In 2004, Hurricane Ivan tore through the Caribbean and ravaged the island of Grenada, destroying homes and changing lives forever. To help rebuild and preserve the once-vibrant landscape, Morgan established the Grenada Relief Fund. He immediately found support from friends in the arts and entertainment community, and the idea for a cookbook was born. MORGAN FREEMAN & FRIENDS: CARIBBEAN COOKING FOR A CAUSE brings together a stellar array of celebrity stories along with coveted recipes from renowned chefs and top-rated resorts to benefit an island in need. Here are more than 75 recipes that capture the true flavor of the islands, from Morgan’s favorite Caribbean Chicken Salad with Lime Vinaigrette, made famous at the Bath & Turtle on Virgin Gorda, to Blanchard’s Cracked Coconut ice cream dessert that Katie Couric fondly remembers from her time in Anguilla, to Chef Marie Frederick’s Breadfruit Fritters, enjoyed by Orlando Bloom while shooting PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN in Antigua. A destination cookbook like no other, MORGAN FREEMAN & FRIENDS will inspire you to enjoy the taste and spirit of the Caribbean no matter where you live. A great gift for the cook in your life in any season.
