SPANISH chef Jose Andres has written a novel detailing how he provided millions of meals to Puerto Ricans following the devastating hurricanes last year.

The book recounts how Andrés’s organisation, World Central Kitchen, overcame bureaucratic hurdles by enlisting 20,000 local volunteers to prepare and deliver 3.7 million meals.

Andrés, 49, organised five kitchens and six food trucks to deliver up to 10,000 meals a day to places most in need. In one photo, he was seen cooking alongside local volunteers late into the night.

We Fed an Island: The True Story of Rebuilding Puerto Rico, One Meal at a Time, is released this month and will be available on Amazon.
