I 'liked' KFC on Facebook . . . to get the free downloadable autobiography of Colonel Sanders

If you saw that I liked KFC on Facebook, I debated for over a week whether to like the page or not (I try to keep my brand fan pages I like to a minimum), but I was just too curious about the Colonel Sanders autobiography & recipe book that launched exclusively on Facebook  . . . I just downloaded the entire book for free.

The book is called "Colonel Harland Sanders: The Autobiography of the Original Celebrity Chef” and was written by the Colonel himself in 1966.  The original manuscript was found recently by accident. 

The book is centered around the Colonel's passion for food, his work ethic, and his thoughts on the importance of home-style country cooking and includes 33 never-before-published recipes.

I do like autobiographies, so I'll eventually read it -- it's on my list, and I'll write a review at a later date.  (But quite honestly, I think the fact that the book is FREE and isn't available in bookstores or even via online booksellers was a little intriguing and made me want to download it just to have it.)

I'll probably end up cooking something from the book before I actually read his story.  The French Fried Parsnips and Cauliflower looks interesting, and the Upside Down Peach Cobbler sounds delicious.  Maybe I'll make a Colonel Sanders dinner sometime soon.
