Isaac Hayes: Cooking with Heart & Soul: Chocolate Pecan Toffee Mousse Pie

As I've mentioned several times on this blog, I collect tie-in, literary, TV, movie, mystery and other cookbooks. So today I'm continuing this series with a fabulous recipe from the Isaac Hayes Cooking with Heart & Soul cookbook: Making Music in the kitchen with Family and Friends (2000). The recipe I chose is a very soulful rich Southern Chocolate recipe for Slammin' Chocolate Pecan Toffee Mousse Pie with "To Die For" Sauce.

The late great Isaac Hayes (1942-2008) was an American songwriter, musician, singer, actor and record producer. But he was also a man who loved to cook. FYI: From 1997 to 2005 he was the distinctive voice of Chef on South Park (see photo below).

Cooking with Heart & Soul has some wonderful memories, anecdotes and dedications, especially to Isaac Hayes' grandmother. Since this is a chocolate blog, I singled out one specific recipe, but there are great recipes for other Southern foods, as well as photos and more. Definitely a welcome addition to any Tie-In Cookbook Shelf!

cooking with heart & soul- that should be the "mantra". Great to see such passion.

Mm, sounds dee-licious. Would love to check the book out - maybe I will manage to prepare some of the things, listed inside!
