Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Now in her 80s, writer Angelou, a food lover who has struggled with weight and health concerns, learned the value of portion control. In this cookbook, she recommends eating great food (no calorie counting) in small portions all day long. Her recipes come from childhood and from her travels and include reworked concoctions influenced and inspired by other cookbooks she loves. Angelou breaks the rules of what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with recipes for meals to eat any time of the day. The emphasis is on food so flavorful that whenever it is eaten, it is savored and so satisfying that small portions are enough. Among the recipes for creamy pork hash, chicken tetrazzini, Swedish hash, and oxtail stew are recollections from her life and commentary on acquired tastes and eating beyond physical fullness. In addition to the meat dishes are sections for vegetarians and recipes for soups and desserts. Gorgeous illustrations and extended commentary add to the appeal of this book. --Vanessa Bush

Review

Praise for Maya Angelou’s Hallelujah! The Welcome Table
 
“A tour-de-force collaboration of two of Angelou’s major passions—writing and cooking . . . She also shares the poignant, pithy and sometimes hilarious memories that accompany each dish.”
—Ebony
 
“Poet and literary legend Maya Angelou is as mighty with her spoon and spatula as she is with her world-renowned pen.”
—Chicago Sun-Times
 
“Serious comfort food . . . The poet’s life [is] laid out like a colorful banquet. . . . Meals serve as metaphors for life experience.”
—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
 
“The life of the poet-autobiographer . . . comes even more alive through plumes of aromas, a palette of flavors and a recipe box of memories.”
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Each recipe is thoughtfully conceived and made even more enticing by the personal history attached to it. . . . The result is as divine as the woman herself, full of flavor, passion and hard work.”
—Oakland Tribune
 
“[Readers] will find not only a wealth of dishes . . . but a close-up, personal glimpse of a compelling writer and her family.”
—New York Daily News
 
“Written in the exuberant tone of an impromptu dinner gathering.”
—Newsweek

Format: Hardcover
Maya Angelou is a treasure in her own right and her philosophy concerning food and cooking is well done in this book. The main advice, which is simple enough, is: eat in small portions, sensibly. She does not worry so much about cutting fat and calories, but enjoy the food you have in a small portions, wait 20 minutes and you will probably fill full.
She gives recipes for dishes and then what can be prepared with the left overs, another bit of good advice to avoid wasting food and the leftover aversion that so many seem to have.

She gives stories throughout the book, so it is a cookbook to read, as well as to cook from. It contains recipes for , crown pork, prime rib, roasted chicken and 2 or 3 `leftover' recipes for each. There are also appetizers, a variety of meat based dinners, such as London Grill and Shepherd's Pie, some really different ideas for breakfast, some vegetarian dishes, soups, breads, salads and 2 desserts.
There are pictures for some dishes and most are relatively simple to make and serve and would please nearly all families and even friends and company in your home.

This cook book is amazing! We are a family of 6 with one income. The items in the book were inexpensive to purchase and the meals were great! It is not cheap to eat healthy but this book is great for budgets!

Really an enjoyable cookbook to read. I've already tried several of the recipes. One of the recipes, however, "Sweet Potato McMillian", called for a very expensive liquer, which I won't be cooking again!
Being single, I also have to halve the recipes. Seem that all were made for having dinner guest.
The personal antedotes are a great added touch.

I am only giving this 3 stars right now, because I have not tried any of the recipes. I will update my review once I have tried some. I was a little disappointed that there were not many dessert recipes.

Wonderful book! Can't wait to try ALL the recipes!! I heard Ms. Angelou READ from her cookbook on NPR and I just knew I had to have it. She made every single every day meal sound like a celebration of living and loving and being grateful for Great Food, All Day Long.
