Morgan For The Cause
In September 2004, Hurricane Ivan ravaged the small Caribbean island of Grenada, completely dismantling homes in its wake -- and changing lives forever.
Academy-Award winning actor and longtime island-lover, Morgan Freeman, particularly fond of the peace, beauty, and idyllic serenity Grenada has always had to offer, was devastated when a friend on the island called to tell him about Ivan's destruction. Firmly dedicated to offering his help, Freeman established the Grenada Relief Fund in 2005. And now comes a totally gorgeous cookbook titled Morgan Freeman & Friends Caribbean Cooking For A Cause also featuring a host of celebrities lending their support to the needs of this lovely island paradise.
And, I don’t mind saying that I've already scoped out a Mahi-Mahi and Shrimp and Lime dish that I'll be trying in the very near future. (Even if it's in my very own sort of "non-island paradise" kitchen at home.) Use your imagination, improvise, play some funky steel band rhythms on the stereo...well, you get the picture. And please, don't even get me started on that luscious-looking Coconut Cheesecake!
Baby Watson's, New York Cheesecake, Junior's Famous, et al, eat your hearts out, buy this book, read, watch -- and learn.
