About this item

Throughout Maya Angelous life, from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, to her world travels as a bestselling writer, good food has played a central role. Preparing and enjoying homemade meals provides a sense of purpose and calm, accomplishment and connection. Now in Hallelujah! The Welcome Table, Angelou shares memories pithy and poignantand the recipes that helped to make them both indelible and irreplaceable.

Angelou tells us about the time she was expelled from school for being afraid to speakand her mother baked a delicious maple cake to brighten her spirits. She gives us her recipe for short ribs along with a story about a job she had as a cook at a Creole restaurant (never mind that she didnt know how to cook and had no idea what Creole food might entail). There was the time in London when she attended a wretched dinner party full of wretched people; but all wasnt lostshe did experience her initial taste of a savory onion tart. She recounts her very first night in her new home in Sonoma, California, when she invited M. F. K. Fisher over for cassoulet, and the evening Deca Mitford roasted a chicken when she was beyond tipsyand created Chicken Drunkard Style. And then there was the hearty brunch Angelou made for a homesick Southerner, a meal that earned her both a job offer and a prophetic compliment: If you can write half as good as you can cook, you are going to be famous.

Maya Angelou is renowned in her wide and generous circle of friends as a marvelous chef. Her kitchen is a social center. From fried meat pies, chicken livers, and beef Wellington to caramel cake, bread pudding, and chocolate clairs, the one hundred-plus recipes included here are all tried and true, and come from Angelous heart and her home. Hallelujah! The Welcome Table is a stunning collaboration between the two things Angelou loves best: writing and cooking.

I am excited about rec'g this book although I expected it to be hard cover. I have searched hi and low for this book long before the demise of the author. It's been years since Opah introduced this book to the public on her show. I found it once amd some one decided that they needed it more than me so they took mine.

3.0 stars by Brightness8

This is a great book but it has that plastic (notebook like) binding on the side that really wasn't listed in the description. That was disappointing considering I expected an actual paperback book. I got the order quickly and wasn't damaged when I got it so that's a plus. I'm satisfied overall but I don't appreciate when product description doesn't accurately describe the item.
