Newly Discovered Colonel Sanders Autobiography Launches

Colonel Sanders' newly discovered autobiography.

Available today for free through Kentucky Fried Chicken's Facebook page is Colonel Sanders' autobiography and collection of never-before-seen recipes. The manuscript for the book was originally written by the Colonel in 1966 and was discovered more than 40 years later. The book can be downloaded in its entirety for free beginning today, and it's only available on the company's Facebook.

Jason Marker, chief marketing officer for KFC said, "What’s most amazing about the book is that while it was written nearly a half-century ago, both the insightful life lessons and the delicious recipes remain relevant today," according to Restaurant News Resource.

The book, titled Colonel Harland Sanders: The Autobiography of the Original Celebrity Chef includes a foreword by Pete Harman, the first franchisee of KFC, and 33 recipes in addition to the story from Sanders.

In order to promote the release of the book, KFC posted two videos on Facebook this past Friday featuring chef Edward Lee (the executive chef/partner of 610 Magnolia in Louisville, and contestant on Top Chef: Texas) showing KFC fans how to add an upscale spin to the Colonel's classic recipes.
