Book Discussion: Jose Andres presents his book “we fed an island”
September 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Four days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Jose Andres arrived on the island and started to cook. Andres, whose 29 restaurants have earned him Michelin Stars and two James Beard “Outstanding Chef” awards dropped everything to feed the people of Puerto Rico as they scrambled to rebuild their infrastructure and economy. Andres cooked paella in parking lots and served sancocho at a friend’s destroyed restaurant, ultimately feeding hundreds of thousands of people. At the same time, he confronted the broken, wasteful crisis-management systems that made his cooking so necessary. We Fed an island movingly describes his experiences in Puerto Rico, and introduces readers to the networks of community activists feeding the island to this day. A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Chef Relief Network of World Central Kitchen for efforts in Puerto Rico and beyond.”
