Cooking With Country Music Stars
is a unique culinary collaboration by 37 of country music’s biggest names. In cooperation with the Country Music Foundation, such stars as Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Barbara Mandrell, Hank Williams, Jr., Tanya Tucker, The Judds, Conway Twitty, the Oak Ridge Boys, and Tammy Wynette share their favorite recipes with their legions of fans.
Cooking With Country Music Stars tells the story of the stars, geared not only to each performer’s musical climb to success, but especially to gastronomical tendencies and observations. What does Charlie Daniels like to eat when he goes off a diet? Whose favorite meal was cooked in diesel fuel when the chef ran out of cooking oil? Get the answers and more straight from the stars.
The diversity of recipes will amaze you and amuse you—everything from Sherried Fruit, Chicken Elegant, and Broiled Rainbow Trout to Southern Pastry, Pigs and Taters, Turnip Greens, and Hog Jowls. More than 200 recipes have been kitchen-tested, and each is accompanied by informative cooking and serving suggestions.
Cooking With Country Music Stars includes full-color photographs of all the stars. Bill Ivey, Director of the Country Music Foundation, and Anne Byrn, Nashville native and food editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution add their thoughts on why “kissing don't last, but country cooking do.”
So come on down to the kitchen and cook with your favorites!
