High Fence Foodie: From The Big House To Your House

“High Fence Foodie: From The Big House To Your House,” has more than two hundred easy to prepare recipes for meals, soups, sides, snacks, dips, beverages, desserts, and holiday treats. The recipes can be made from basic items a prisoner can purchase from their commissary, or people on the outside can purchase from a convenience or grocery store. The recipes are written by Celeste Johnson, a woman imprisoned in Texas who loves to cook and experiment with new combinations of the simple food ingredients available to her. “High Fence Foodie” is a follow-up book to the more than 200 recipes in “From The Big House To Your House,” written by Celeste Johnson and five fellow prisoners at the Mountain View Unit, a woman’s prison in Gatesville, Texas. Celeste Johnson does not financially profit from sales of the book. All profits from the book's sale are donated to The Justice Institute to contribute to its work on behalf of wrongly convicted persons.
