Hallelujah! The Welcome Table: A Lifetime of Memories with Recipes Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Angelou tells us about the time she was expelled from school for being afraid to speak—and 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 didn’t 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 wasn’t lost—she 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 tipsy—and 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 éclairs, the one hundred-plus recipes included here are all tried and true, and come from Angelou’s heart and her home. Hallelujah! The Welcome Table is a stunning collaboration between the two things Angelou loves best: writing and cooking.

What makes this book REALLY special are the stories that Maya Angelou tells about how and when she discovered certain recipes, memories of family togetherness or of affairs gone terribly wrong (the latter inspired her to go home and create a wonderful banana pudding). Her Smothered Chicken won raves from Oprah Winfrey and was featured on a recent show.
As always, Angelou is opinionated and straightforward about what she likes in a recipe and what makes for good cooking - and eating. Readers are likely to learn something along the way, not only about what makes for good eating but what being a gracious, generous host is all about.

I preferred the stories involving her mother and grandmother, to the stuff when she's out in the world as a professional. But that's just me.
I didn't really care for the interview at the end, the questions (incorporated into her answers) seemed to be a bit pointless.
Still, there's lots to enjoy here - highly recommended
