Condoleezza Rice To Publish Cookbook
NEW YORK—Former Bush Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has announced this week that she will be publishing a cookbook as a companion piece to her memoir, No Higher Honor. The cookbook, entitled Recipes of Mass Consumption, will feature different meals that should be prepared to help the reader swallow the stories told in her memoir.
Rice’s cookbook is divided into sections based on Condoleezza Rice’s years in the Bush Administration. The first section connects meals with her time as National Security Advisor; the second focuses on her actual time as Secretary of State; and the third includes dessert recipes for when she was out of office and no longer connected with the administration. Several interesting concoctions in the book include: Honey-baked SadHAM Hussein, Grilled Chicken a la Sarkozy, and Cuban water-boarded Salmon.
Many different Food Network stars have come out in support of Rice’s book. Bobby Flay in particular wrote a wonderful praise on the dust jacket. Nevertheless, political insiders, unaccustomed with cooking, have called the book outlandish and politicized. Several liberal groups say that, “the recipes only further prove how out of touch the Bush Administration was with the American people. These recipes are the work of fascists.” Perhaps the liberal groups are referring to the dessert recipe based on the economy called Marie Antoinette Cakes.
