Parents & Teachers: Book Summary,
"Cooking With Heart and Soul"
Cooking With Heart and Soul (2000)
By: Isaac Hayes & Susan DiSesa
Throughout his career as a musician, actor, and – most recently – the voice of "Chef" on the television show South Park, Isaac Hayes has always loved food. His southern style cookbook is part memoir, part cookbook. It has everything from Delta Fried Catfish to Sweet Potato Pie.
Most of the recipes are borrowed from family and friends, some of them famous individuals – Ann Archer's Homemade Spaghetti and John Travolta's Hamburger Royale with Cheese.
Hayes' book is a mix of traditional home cooking and healthy eating, with a touch of the gourmet – and lots of stories from a life lived to the fullest. This is a rare collection of recipes and reminiscences that reveals Hayes' passionate and eclectic interests, from soul food and soul music to superstars and super-nutrients.
