It's been a mystery for years. At least, for most of us in the general public. The secret recipe of KFC's 11 herbs and spices.

A couple years ago there was a story that broke, that said the secret recipe was revealed. How did the recipe get exposed? A reporter was flipping through some family albums of the Colonel's second wife Claudia Ledginton, and found a recipe scribbled on the back of her last will and testament. The recipe was:

11 spice - Mix with 2 cups white fl.

  1. 2/3 Ts salt
  2. 1/2 Ts Thyme
  3. 1/2 Ts Basil
  4. 1/3 Ts Oregano
  5. 1 Ts Celery salt
  6. 1 Ts Black pepper
  7. 1 Ts Dried mustard
  8. 4 Ts Paprika
  9. 2 Ts Garlic salt
  10. 1 Ts Ground ginger
  11. 3 Ts White pepper

There was an official statement from KFC about this recipe that was found though.

"Many people have made these claims over the years and no one has been accurate — this one isn’t either.”

BUT, it looks like KFC is about to unveil the full recipe. All in the name of.... cooking classes in the UK?!

There will be 300 KFC locations that will host open kitchen events, so you can learn the secret recipe. One problem for us here in the states though. All 300 locations are over in the UK and Ireland.

If you are able to make your way over there, you can check out the website for the events BY CLICKING HERE.
