COOKING WITH HEART AND SOUL
"I grew up eating what's now called southern soul food, but for us it was just the way Mama cooked every day."
A cookbook designed, like all the best cookbooks, to be not only used but read: blending memoir and personal history with a satisfying array of recipes. Hayes's wealth of show-business anecdotes – from meeting Elvis in a segregated Memphis club in the '50s, to reluctantly allowing the South Park creators to talk him into voicing "Chef" – are rounded out by an array of more personal stories and family history, along with the author's philosophies on food and conversion to healthy living. A lovely copy.
