An approach to eating and food that is all about moderation, eating small portions when you are hungry, treating food with love and respect. Maya Angelou tells many stories alongside the recipes, sharing the food philosophy that has seen her into a serene and healthy old age. This is as close as many of us will come to hearing the words of a wise woman, learn and enjoy.

Synopsis

Great Food All Day Long Eat Joyfully, Eat Healthily by Maya Angelou

At one time, I described myself as a cook, a driver, and a writer. I no longer drive, but I still do write and I do still cook. And having reached the delicious age of eighty-one, I realize that I have been feeding other people and eating for a long time. I have been cooking nearly all my life, so I have developed some philosophies.' With her second cookbook, Maya Angelou turns her attention to good food, well-made and eaten in moderation, and gives us time-tested recipes along with intimate autobiographical sketches of how they came to be. Packed with delicious dishes here can be eaten in small portions, many times a day and, more importantly, converted into other mouth-watering incarnations. Great Food, All Day Long is an essential reference for everyone who wants to eat more healthily and joyfully - and a delightful peek into the kitchen and heart of a remarkable woman.

Reviews

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

Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Maz Tucker

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.

Julie Cook

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
