Wonderfully poetic writing and food reminiscences come together seamlessly in this collection of recipes and meal memories from poet Maya Angelou. Renowned in her wide and generous circle of friends (some of them famous… Oprah, Jessica Mitford, Rosa Guy) 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 éclairs, the recipes and accompanying stories come from Angelou’s heart and her home. Truly inspiration for both heart and stomach.
“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.”—Publishers Weekly
