Holly Maguire's grandmother Camilla was the Love Goddess of Blue Crab Island, Maine--a Milanese fortune-teller who could predict the right man for you, and whose Italian cooking was rumored to save marriages. Holly has been waiting years for her unlikely fortune: her true love will like sa cordula, an unappetizing old-world delicacy. But Holly can't make a decent marinara sauce, let alone sa cordula. Maybe that's why the man she hopes to marry breaks her heart. So when Holly inherits Camilla's Cucinotta, she's determined to forget about fortunes and love and become an Italian cooking teacher worthy of her grandmother's legacy. But Holly's four students are seeking much more than how to make Camilla's chicken alla Milanese. Simon, a single father, hopes to cook his way back into his daughter's heart. Juliet, Holly's childhood friend, hides a painful secret. Tamara, a serial dater, can't find the love she longs for. And twelve-year-old Mia thinks learning to cook will stop her dad, Liam, from marrying his phony lasagna-queen girlfriend. As the class gathers each week, adding Camilla's essential ingredients of wishes and memories in every pot and pan, unexpected friendships and romances are formed--and tested. Especially when Holly falls hard for Liam . . . and learns a thing or two about finding her own recipe for happiness.
Isaac Lee Hayes (born August 20, 1942, in Covington, Tennessee) is an actor, soul singer, Academy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and arranger. He voiced the character "Chef", a singing ladies' man and elementary school cook, on the animated sitcom South Park.
In 1972, Hayes won an Oscar for Best Original Song for the film Shaft. Hayes became the first African American to win an Academy Award in a non-acting category. After Hattie McDaniel, James Baskett and Sidney Poitier, he became only the fourth performer of African descent to ever receive an Academy Award. He was also nominated in the Best Original Score category (for Shaft) as well.
Hayes won Grammy awards for: Best Instrumental Arrangement, "Theme From Shaft" (arranged with Johnny Allen) in 1971
Best Original Score Written For A Motion Picture Or A Television Special,"Theme From Shaft" in 1971
Best Pop Instrumental Performance By An Arranger, Composer, Orchestra and/or Choral Leader, "Black Moses" in 1972
In 1992, Hayes was crowned an honorary king of Ghana's Ada district thanks to his humanitarian deeds.
On June 9, 2005, Hayes was inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame alongside Bill Withers, Steve Cropper, Robert B. Sherman, Richard M. Sherman, John Fogerty and his longtime writing partner David Porter.
Few figures exerted greater influence over the music of the 1960s and 1970s than Isaac Hayes; after laying the groundwork for the Memphis soul sound through his work with Stax-Volt Records, Hayes began a highly successful solo career which predated not only the disco movement but also the evolution of rap.
Dinner on the Kitchen Floor
On Facebook today I mentioned the night in my apartment in Memphis when I was opening the oven to get the bread out, caught the cord of the electric skillet, and flipped the whole dinner onto the kitchen floor. I just dug out this picture that somebody took of the clean-up. Presumably one of the males took the picture since the females are all shown. The guest list that night included out-of-town visitors Wyatt Rousseau and Edwin and Carolyn Holmes and Memphians Mary Linda and Lee Wardlaw and Janie and Charlie McCrary. The three medical people (Lee, who was a Resident in Internal Medicine at Gaston Hospital at the time, and Wyatt and Edwin, who were either juniors or seniors at Vanderbuilt Medical School) discussed the situation and decided we could handle the risk of eating it (whatever it was -- I don't remember that part), after cooking it for a little while longer. We all lived. In the picture: Carolyn is in foreground with back to camera, Mary Linda is in reddish pants, Janie is partially visible wearing a skirt, and yours truly is scooping the goop from the floor back into the skillet.

Reminiscent of Chocolat and Like Water for Chocolate, a gorgeously written novel about life, love, and the magic of food.
The School of Essential Ingredients follows the lives of eight students who gather in Lillianís Restaurant every Monday night for cooking class. It soon becomes clear, however, that each one seeks a recipe for something beyond the kitchen. Students include Claire, a young mother struggling with the demands of her family; Antonia, an Italian kitchen designer learning to adapt to life in America; and Tom, a widower mourning the loss of his wife to breast cancer. Chef Lillian, a woman whose connection with food is both soulful and exacting, helps them to create dishes whose flavor and techniques expand beyond the restaurant and into the secret corners of her studentsí lives. One by one the students are transformed by the aromas, flavors, and textures of Lillianís food, including a white-on-white cake that prompts wistful reflections on the sweet fragility of love and a peppery heirloom tomato sauce that seems to spark one romance but end another. Brought together by the power of food and companionship, the lives of the characters mingle and intertwine, united by the revealing nature of what can be created in the kitchen.
