This is not really the true, authentic Caribbean food you will find in "local" restaurants, at beach bars and BBQs, at roadside stands. This is fancy resort food that's "Caribbean inspired" but largely not authentic, nor food that most home cooks are going to be able to or regularly want to cook. It's all very pretty to look at in the colorful photos, but I've not felt the desire to cook anything from here yet. I'll stick with Levi Roots' books and Virginia Burkes' "Eat Caribbean".
I love Caribbean food and have always thought how such a shame it is that it doesn't get more publicity outside the Caribbean. From the book, I particularly recommend the Fish Cakes, the Jerk Chicken and the Red Snapper. The recipes work and they are all accompanied by wonderful colour photographs, which I have always considered essential in cookery books - it is so important to be able to see the dish you are trying to replicate.
Above all this, Morgan Freeman donates all his proceeds from the book to the Grenada relief fund - so its all done for a great cause. I can't recommend this book enough.
The reason that I gave it 3 stars is because some of the lesser known Islands like Nevis, Mustique, and St. John's have a chapter in this book. The book also get some points for appearance. All the pages are in full, glossy color. One thing that I was pleased to see was a small section on Ital food, something that is largely ignored even in authentic cookbooks. Ital food was Ben Vereen's contribution.
The book is broken up into sections by island, not by course, and there is a picture of each celebrity as well as some of the chefs. If you are looking for "down home" food, look elsewhere.
