The KFC Cookbook Can Now Be Yours
Although it won’t share KFC’s closely-guarded (and tasty) blend of spices, an upcoming autobiography released by the fast food restaurant will give us a glimpse into the life of Colonel Sanders and offer a ton of awesome recipes. Best of all, it’s totally free.
‘Colonel Harland Sanders: The Autobiography of the Original Celebrity Chef,’ which was written by Sanders in 1966 and discovered by accident more than 40 years later, will be offered on Facebook starting on June 4th. Users who “like” KFC’s Facebook page will be able to download the online-only title for free.
“This book, written in 1966, is about a man’s life and the food he’s cooked, eaten and served. That man is me. The food I’ve liked, the work I’ve done and the way I think are all the same things. It’s not such a farfetched idea. A lot of learned men think people really are the food they’ve eaten,” writes Sanders in the intro.
In addition to detailing the Colonel’s rise as a fried chicken icon, the book will also feature 33 “never-before-seen” recipes, including an omelette, upside-down peach cobbler and potato pancakes. Yum! Let’s hope the Colonel finally lets us in on the secret of his home-style biscuits too.
