Format: Hardcover
This was well written! I could almost smell the food as he described the meals, not only what they ate, but how the food was prepared, the moods of the people preparing the food.
I was reminded of the movie Soul Food and the connection between family, friends, and our love affair with good, well-prepared meals. I even tried his recipe for fried chicken and I got rave reviews from my family.
He's led an extraordinary life, one that adds to the notion that African-Americans are truly multi-facted people. The combination of Soul Food and Opera is one that doesn't come to mind immediately, but Alexander Smalls expands our thinking and shows us that anything is possible with enough drive and determination.
Well worth reading!!

This wonderful book transported me to an delicious world with incredible new sights, sounds and (literally) tastes. To be a part of Mr. Smalls adventures from a small southern town to the prominent people and stages of the world.This book allows you to get inside Mr. Small's mind and experience his journey along with him. The only problem is that I didn't want the book to stop! I've read it twice and have been an absolute hit at dinner parties with the recipes from the book. I've bought this book for friends and always get a great response as well as edible treats in reply. I recommend this book to anyonewho relishes food, adventure and family.

...with the extra added flair that this author /chef brings through his "magic hand" and colorful adventures in the U.S. and abroad. The reader is regaled with sumptuous feasts created by him and shared with family and friends (many famous in their own right). The imagery conjured up is that of pure delight - of people who not only enjoy food, but love life! Pure joy! (and the recipes work too!)

Format: Paperback
This is a book that's passionate about food and culture--one that is unique to America. Like southern France, the American South has contributed so much to the national cuisine (some would argue that it IS the national cuisine). This book is a celebration of how family,food, and community can make art.
