Prison Inmates Want You To Try Their Recipes
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a gift for the cook who has everything. Six women in Texas have compiled a cookbook. What makes it unusual is that the six women are in prison. The book is called, "From the Big House to Your House," and it proposes recipes using ingredients the women have on hand, like tuna nachos.
The women must cook using a hot pot. They can't boil water, since that could become a weapon. They do not have access to a stove, refrigerator or a knife.
It's MORNING EDITION.
