Editorial Reviews

When Hurricane Ivan sliced directly through Grenada in September 2004, it left the tiny Caribbean island in tatters, causing over $800 million in damage to an already weak economy. In response to this overwhelming devastation, longtime island visitor Morgan Freeman established the Grenada Relief Fund. Morgan Freeman and Friends combines the pleasures of good food with the virtues of a good cause. More than 15 celebrities contribute their favorite Caribbean recipes. In addition to Academy Award winner Freeman, the sparkling roster includes Michael Douglas, Katie Couric, Tom Hanks, Hilary Swank, Alicia Keys, and Kenny Chesney. Proceeds from this celebration of island culture will benefit the Relief Fund.
