A delightful and delicious look into the life of an icon, Linda Evans, which includes personal photographs, recipes, and anecdotes from her illustrious career in Hollywood.
Award-winning actress LINDA EVANS has personified beauty and grace to American television viewers for over five decades, from her role as Audra Barkley on The Big Valley, to the glamorous Krystle Carrington on Dynasty, to Hell’s Kitchen, which she won in 2009 in London, England. She has won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Drama series and has won five People’s Choice Awards for Best Female Performer. Linda was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. For her contribution to the television industry, Linda has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
After Dynasty, Linda moved from Hollywood to the Pacific Northwest, where she began an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. She has returned to performing frequently, starring in the stage play, Legends, and winning the Hell’s Kitchen competition while working under Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White.
Linda’s often lavish and luxurious life has rivaled Krystle Carrington’s. She has dined with queens and presidents, been romanced by the rich and famous, and today, what Linda treasures most is the wisdom she has gained along the way.
“Attention-grabbing anecdotes, glossy photos and delectable recipes. With a warm, friendly tone, Evans gently guides readers through the seminal moments of her life and career. A mouthwatering blend of memoir and cookbook.”
“Entertaining…filled with magical moments, romantic adventures, friendships with the rich and famous, and personal challenges, with applications far beyond Hollywood and the kitchen.”
“Linda has joyously combined her two passions in life—people and food—into a mouthwatering memoir. And just like the lady, herself, it’s Delicious!”
—Kathie Lee Gifford, TV personality and New York Times bestselling author
“A fun read from an iconic beauty and TV star.”
—Susan Lucci, TV legend and New York Times bestselling author
