Paula Deen and Nigella Lawson step aside. Colonel Harland Sanders is about to teach the world "real old-time country and farm cooking before it's forgotten."
Yes, Colonel Sanders.
On yellowed pages hidden for decades, the white-jacketed man with a special fried chicken recipe and a vision that helped create the modern fast-food industry reveals he saw a future in another lucrative market - celebrity food books.
The recent discovery of an unpublished manuscript written by the founder of KFC shows that while Sanders was helping build Kentucky Fried Chicken into a global brand, he was recording his life and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.
No, not THAT recipe.
Sanders' secret mix of 11 herbs and spices remains locked inside the company's vault.
But the manuscript from the mid-1960s, found recently by an employee rummaging through KFC's archives, again shows that the man who started the world's most popular chicken chain from a Social Security check and his secret recipe was a man before his time.
