Isaac Hayes is a musician, actor, radio host, and television personality. He has won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and the NAACP Image Award among others, and has had several gold and platinum singles and albums. He is currently the voice of "Chef" on South Park and the top-rated deejay on KISS-FM, a New York radio station. Honored for his humanitarian efforts in both Africa and the United States, he was the international spokesman for the World Literacy Campaign, in which he remains actively involved.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.)
