The chicken Colonel's new/old book is almost out.
"The work, titled "Colonel Harland Sanders: The Autobiography of the Original Celebrity Chef," will be made available not in stores, but on Facebook for free download beginning June 4. The page already includes the first chapter, an introduction and a recipe for potato pancakes.
Written in 1966, the book winds through anecdotes from the Colonel's life, sprinkled with 33 recipes for country dishes like cornbread stuffing, light bread, hot biscuits with honey butter, chicken pot pie, hushpuppies, fried tomatoes, potato pancakes, pecan pie and baked apple dumplings.
As Sanders says in the introduction: "This is a new kind of book. It’s the story of a man’s life and the story of the food he’s cooked and eaten running right along with it.""
