Colonel Sanders Had More Secrets

Eleven herbs and spices weren’t all that Colonel Harlan Sanders was keeping secret.  Turns out that the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken was ahead of his time with celebrity chef cookbooks, too.

The recent discovery of an unpublished manuscript written by the founder of KFC shows that while Sanders was helping build Kentucky Fried Chicken into a global brand, he was recording his life and love of food — and recipes — for the world.

In the mid 1960′s, Sanders was hard at work on a book that was part biography, part cookbook.

“This is a new kind of book,” Sanders wrote in the first chapter of an approximately 200-page, typewritten manuscript that KFC plans to offer up on the Internet. “There’s never been another written like it as far as I know.

“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.”

The half-inch-thick document is chock full of homespun anecdotes and life lessons from Sanders, who struck it rich late in life. It also includes a heaping helping of his favorite personal recipes.

“To me, my recipes are priceless,” he wrote.

Officials with Kentucky Fried Chicken say that they plan on releasing the book in the near future.  Meanwhile, it’s under lock and key in the same safe as the 11 herb and spices KFC recipe.
