LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Colonel Sanders manuscript, that appears to have been written in the 1960s, has been discovered in a storage facility in Louisville, Ky., by a KFC employee.
Amy Sherwood, a 30-year employee of Yum! Brands, parent company of KFC, discovered the 200-page, typewritten manuscript, which was filled with recipes and instructions on how to make biscuits, pancakes, casseroles and pies.
“I knew instantaneously what it was,” Sherwood is quoted as saying by the Toronto Star. “It provides a look into his life and that was centered on his passion for food and hard work and the passion for home-style cooking.”
The company plans to make the manuscript available online, for free. “We can’st wait to share its secrets with KFC fans around the globe,” Roger Eaton, CEO of KFC, is quoted as saying by the Associated Press. “Colonel Sanders was a lifelong cook and sage and his life lessons are just as powerful and relevant today as they were 40 years ago.”
The manuscript is expected to be published within the next year.
