About the Author

Kenny Sylvester is a former shipyard worker who is an avid cook and car enthusiast. Kenny has worked as Mr. Abe's personal assistant since 1982. In 1983, Mr Abe approached Kenny and requested that he cook a meal every now and then. The rest is history. A yearlater, Mr Abe informed Kenny of his new lifestyle changes that included a lowfat diet and rigorous exercise program. This created a problem, because Mr. Abe was used to eating well and enjoying his food. At that time, to eat heart healthy meant that the food was unpalatable. So began the quest. Mr. Abe's Goody book is the end result.

The Author Kenny Sylvester, has passed out a few advanced copies of Mr. Abe's Goody Book around southern alabama. I was lucky enough to get one. I found page after page of color photos of marvelous heart healthy recipes. The book contains a great variety of recipes including a dessert section. So far, I find these recipes to be very tasty and easy to prepare. What I know of the author is that he is a well principled family man who has been a good samaritan to a great number of people for all his life. I am one of the people to benefit from his generosity! This book is supurb, and is a fine tribute to his good friend and employer Abe Mitchell. This book should sell like hotcakes!

Wow! All you have to do is try his "Get Together Gumbo" and you will be sold on the rest. The recipies are heart healthy in more than one way. They are low in salt and cholesterol, but they also come from the heart as you can see in the stories he shares with many of the recipies. And they taste like good old home cooking! Okra and Tomatoes, Quick Marinated Crab Claws, Honey Bourbon Grilled Salmon, and Coffee Cake, and it's healthy AND tastes great! Thank you Mr. Sylvester!

This book is terrific for the heart healthy individual. I met Kenneth Sylvester some time ago when he began working for Mr. Mitchell. I find him to be one of the most kindest and caring individuals I know. To show how good (especially the crab salad and muffins) these recipes are, I have incorporated a variety of them into my every day diet. I have lost a total of 81 pounds in just over a year. With these recipes, eating health taste great!

I have known Kenny Sylvester for decades. Really a great guy and a superb chef. I have been fortunate enough to have eaten many of his recipies and have nothing but good things to say about them. This is from someone who does not always eat what is best health wise. Kenny's food is remarkably tasty and delicious without the "bad stuff". I highly recommend his book.

I bought my copy of Mr. Abe's Goody Book at the Page and Palette bookstore in Fairhope, Alabama. I have noticed the author has made his "Heart Healthy" recipes simple enough for a "non-cook" such as myself to prepare,and serve to my guests. The author also used color photo's that he took himself. Looking at the pictures of the recipes gave me a good serving suggestions. Unlike other cookbooks these recipes look like the average person will succeed in preparing them. I find the recipes to be very tastey and simple to prepare.

I purchased my copy of Mr. Abe's Goody Book at Bebo's in Mobile, Alabama. It was bought as a gift for my sister, and she loves it. Having to pay more attention to her health, she now can easily prepare healthy meals that taste great thanks to this book. These few words of mine would be incomplete unless I gave some insight about Mr. Sylvester. Kenneth is and has always been my very best and dearest friend, and I am sure there are many others who would say the same of him. Kenneth introduced me to different cuisines as we would frequent various restaurants about Mobile during the 70's. We would eat as much as we could of whatever we wanted. I noticed a change in Kenneth in the 80's when I would visit him from Texas. Now when we would have dinner he would make comments about my menu selections of red meat and French fries, then he would proceed to lecture me about the detriments of an unhealthy diet containing excess cholesterol and fats. I figured that he knew something of what he was saying since he owned a catering business at the time. The point that I want to make is that when you purchase this book, know that in it Kenneth has combined 30 years of experience in excellent cooking with an eye towards a healthy diet and lifestyle.
