Academy Award®-winning actor Morgan Freeman and a star-studded group of celebrities contribute exotic recipes and personal island tales in a splendid cookbook created to help rebuild the hurricane-devastated island of Grenada.

In September 2004, Hurricane Ivan ravaged the small Caribbean island of Grenada, destroying homes and changing lives forever. Longtime island-lover Morgan Freeman established the Grenada Relief Fund in 2005. Now comes this beautiful cookbook, bringing together a bevy of celebrities to benefit this island in need.

This star-studded cookbook features:

From Booklist:

To raise money in support of the Grenada Relief Fund for victims of 2004's Hurricane Ivan, Morgan Freeman has solicited a bevy of Hollywood celebrities to adorn this compilation of Caribbean recipes with their familiar images. Alfre Woodard admires Mustique. Tom Hanks lauds St. Barth's. Tim Robbins recalls good times in St. Croix. Katie Couric shares her vacation in Anguilla. Ben Vereen revels in Jamaica. From these island resorts, local restaurateurs share recipes they serve their guests. Befitting these beachy locales, recipes feature seafood and tropical produce. Fruit soups, composed salads, lobster with herbed butter, and chocolate shells filled with coconut ice cream well define the product of laid-back resort kitchens. Such sophisticated examples of contemporary cuisine contrast with more traditional dishes such as ackee with salt fish, jerk chicken, and peas and rice. Color photographs throughout show off both the food and the photogenic celebrities. Mark Knoblauch
