Dr. Maya Angelou was simply an amazing woman; an author, poet, singer, a philanthropist, teacher and so much more! She lived her life fully.
Embracing each new opportunity with a zest for life and genuine enthusiasm. She was an inspiration to so many. I loved her work and I’m pretty certain that I’ll love her food too.
Few people know that she also had such a great love of food that she wrote cookbooks too! She did it all without apology. Lived a life of rich tapestries, just as life should be lived.
“Hallelujah! The Welcome Table” and “Great Food, All Day Long” are full of recipes which reflect Maya Angelou’s many life experiences and travels around the world. I’ve added both to my wishlist. Her message of love lives on through her writing and through her recipes.
We thank you Dr Angelou!
Preparing and enjoying homemade meals provides a sense of purpose and calm, accomplishment and connection. In Hallelujah! The Welcome Table, Angelou shares memories pithy and poignant–and the recipes that helped to make them both indelible and irreplaceable.
Savor recipes for Mixed-Up Tamale Pie, All Day and Night Cornbread, Sweet Potatoes McMillan, Braised Lamb with White Beans, and Pytt I Panna (Swedish hash.) All the delicious dishes here can be eaten in small portions, and many times a day. More important, they can be converted into other mouth-watering incarnations.
