Editorial Reviews

Review

"With the same sweet, strong voice she uses in her award-winning poetry and best-selling books, Maya Angelou now turns to a favorite and long enduring passion--food...In HALLELUJAH! she kneads together wonderfully re-created recollections from throughout her life with the foods that made them memorable. We taste the crackling cornbread warm from her grandmother's oven, feel her pride as she roasts a turkey and makes cornbread stuffing for a group of scholars in an Italian villa and laugh when she recounts a tale of pot roast and Brillo pads." -Chicago Daily Herald


From the Compact Disc edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Readers familiar with Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings will find what may be the secret ingredient of her success in this collection of tear- and laughter-provoking vignettes with 73 savory recipes. Here's Angelou's grandmother's Chicken and Dumplings, Crackling Corn Bread and Caramel Cake. Big brother Bailey makes a mean batch of Smothered Pork Chops and knows how to stretch them for a week's worth of meals. Mother, who "cooked wonderful meals and was very poignant about how to present them," can make a Roasted Capon play second fiddle to Red Rice. As the wider world beckons, Angelou dines. Sometimes she's the worker; having passed herself off as an experienced Creole cook, she becomes one with her Braised Short Ribs. Other times, she's the hostess serving what M.F.K. Fisher pronounces "the first honest cassoulet I have eaten in years." A batch of spoon bread nets Angelou a job and compliment: "If you can write half as good as you can cook, you are going to be famous." She does, and the food world widens (tamales, paté, minestrone, chachouka), and the fellow diners often have famous names (Oprah, Jessica Mitford, Rosa Guy). The food remains delectable and comfortable, and Angelou's directions are minimal but clear enough for experienced cooks. Color photos not seen by PW.

1.0 out of 5 stars BOOK WAS NOT NEW!
By DebbyM on March 10, 2021
So disappointed! This book was NOT new as advertised. It was well-worn, stained on the cover and inside pages. Pages had been dog-eared, and the overall condition was well-used. Had I known I was buying a used book I surely would not have paid $32 for it. I feel taken!

1.0 out of 5 stars False Advertisement (Not New)
By MELISA JOSEPH on June 23, 2021
This book cover was dirty on the front and back. The crease of the cover is worn. I paid for a new book not used one. Very disappointed. When I rub my hand over the front and back cover I can feel stickiness and it feels as if someone with dirty hands.
