“I grew up listening to Isaac Hayes. My feet still gets moving when I hear the music from Shaft or You Never know. I was really saddened to hear that he passed on today, 8/10/08 in Memphis. I picked up his cookbook called "Isaac Hayes Cooking with Heart and Soul" maybe 8-9 years ago and loved reading this book. It was part autobiography of his dirt poor childhood, his family, his grandparents, his start, his rise, his family now and his love of cooking. Before this book, I was really not that familiar with soul cooking or southern cooking. It wasn't just the recipes, he talks to you before the recipes and continues on through the book. I fell in love with southern and soul cooking through him. Thank you Isaac Hayes! To celebrate the man, his life, cooking and music, I like to submit this recipe from his book.”
