    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    Fans of memoir-style cookbooks, Shaft, South Park and soul music, as well as those in need of some basic Southern-style recipes, will find the perfect example of niche marketing in the new book Hayes dishes up. Sandwiched between easygoing recipes like Delta Fried Catfish and Sweet Potato Pie with Walnut Streusel is Hayes's story of his poor Tennessee youth and rise to music-industry fame. Occasionally the recipes blur his roots and career, such as with his South Park-inspired Chocolate Salty Balls ("Chef [the character for whom Hayes provides the voice] loves music, women, and sex. And I do, too!") and Deep-Fried Jive Turkey, which calls for a whole bird to be deep-friedAin five gallons of peanut oil. Most of the foods offered up are borrowed from friends and family, and since Hayes has a lot of famous pals, there is a litany of entertainment-biz entr?es, including Wesley Snipe's Rum-Glazed Cornish Hens with Apple-Sourdough Stuffing, Anne Archer's Homemade Spaghetti and John Travolta's Hamburger Royale with Cheese, to name a few. Hayes ends the book by confessing that he now eats only "healthy" food: brown rice for breakfast, steamed veggies and pasta for dinner. (Nov.)

    Product Description:
    Long before Isaac Hayes became the voice of "Chef" on the wildly popular and irreverent television show South Park, he was a food lover. His fondest and most enduring memories are those associated with his Tennessee boyhood and helping his grandmother to prepare traditional Southern soul food. Before becoming an Academy Award-winning composer, Hayes was a short-order cook. And somewhere in a career spanning more than four decades, he was a single father who cooked for five children and shared recipes with friends, professional chefs, and family. The commercial successes in music, film, television, and radio came and went and came again-but always there was the food.

    Cooking with Heart and Soul is pure Isaac Hayes-one part hot buttered soul, one part chocolate salty balls, and a big helping of comfort. It's 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 Isaac's passionate and eclectic interests from soul food and soul music to superstars and super-nutrients. It is as inspiring and satisfying as his Mama's Fried Cream Corn recipe.
