We Fed an Is­land: The True Story of Re­build­ing Puerto Rico, One Meal at a Time, is an in­spi­ra­tional book, but it’s also an an­gry one, a call to arms for re­form of how the gov­ern­ment and other or­gan­i­sa­tions re­spond to dis­as­ters. An­drés has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence at that, hav­ing been in­volved in re­lief op­er­a­tions after such catas­tro­phes as Hur­ri­cane Sandy in 2012 and the mas­sive 2010 earth­quake in Haiti. That led to his found­ing a food re­lief or­gan­i­sa­tion, World Cen­tral Kitchen. Dis­as­ter re­lief is not An­drés’ ca­reer. He is a James Beard award-win­ning chef who op­er­ates more than two dozen ac­claimed restau­rants in the US and else­where. Dis­as­ter re­lief is clearly a pas­sion for him, though, and he writes about Puerto Rico’s post-maria suf­fer­ing as a heart-break­ing ex­am­ple of how not to do it.
