Willie Isbell of Bruce is the oldest of nine children and started cooking about age 9. His mother, Mary, showed him how to make peas and cornbread so he could get meals ready while she and his father worked in the field.
She also taught him to make biscuits, chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, and salmon patties, and he takes pride in what he learned from her. Read the full story on Willie’s cooking experience and see some of his recipes in the Recipe section.
