Culinary find of the century

Posted By on Mon, Nov 14, 2011 at 11:14 AM

Attention fried-chicken lovers who don't go to Popeyes: The Huffington Post reports the potentially world-rocking discovery of an unpublished manuscript by Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The volume is, in actuality, ahead of its time in that it combines recipes and memoir. (No, it doesn't include The Recipe.). Here's a preview:

The unpublished manuscript was unearthed recently by Yum Brands employee Amy Sherwood while she was doing research.

"It was in an envelope," she said. "I opened it up and immediately recognized that it was a treasure and a significant discovery."

KFC said it concluded the text was written in 1965 or 1966 through chats with current and former employees who knew or worked with Sanders. Internal documents also validated that he was working on an autobiography with recipes during that period, it said.
