Religion & Spirituality. Nonfiction. If ever an audiobook could be called mouth-watering, this journey through the years, read by the great American poet, is a feast of food that only Maya Angelou can bring to her listeners. In a deep, rich voice, she shares stories of people, places, and food in a cozy, confidential way, taking us from her Arkansas childhood and her grand-mother's kitchen to adulthood, including becoming a Creole cook without knowing how. Along the way, she generously shares her no-nonsense approach to life. As a friend once said, "If you can write as well as you cook, you're going to be famous." And the prediction came true. The telling is funny at times, heartbreaking at others, and Angelou's superb voice turns the art and enjoyment of cooking into poetry. M.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine. HTML:Throughout Maya Angelou's 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 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 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 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 an extraordinary life she led! ( )
  DonnaEverhart | Sep 25, 2020 |
Angelou relates episodes from her life along with the foods accompanying those moments. I found the earlier incidents and recipes more interesting than the later ones for the most part. It is most likely to appeal to fans of Angelou's writing rather than cookbook aficionados. ( )

Maya writes several short stories about her life and includes the recipes that go along with that memory. This is a must read just for the stories alone. I tried several of the recipes and they turned out great. ( )
  Ellens_ESO | Jan 22, 2012 |
This book is great because, with each recipe, you get a story from the life of the incomparable Dr. Angelou featuring the recipe. It may not be well-known that she is a first-rate cook as well as memoirist, poet, actor, dancer....The recipes are relatively easy to make and are delicious. Try the drunken chicken: chicken pieces cooked in white wine. Yum. ( )
