The Help Cookbook: Food and Friendship

Welcome to The Help Cookbook!

I collected these recipes from Food and Wine and The Food Network so that I could create this book full of fattening (but delicious) Southern food from the movie The Help. I chose these recipes because these dishes star in scenes where the typical social roles are reversed. They show that food can cross boundaries and that sharing a meal can bridge social and cultural divides.

I hope this cookbook shows that cooking is not just about food. It’s about expressing yourself through food and connecting with those around you. Cooking can build friendships between people who normally would not even speak to each other.  Read more...

Cookbook Recipe
Minny's Notoriously Irresistible Chocolate Pie
This classic pie is a staple for every occasion—dinner parties, formal meals, or casual lunches. A true Southern cook, one of Minnie’s main sources of power is her famous chocolate pie—it has helped her get jobs, and, in one special case, even helped her take revenge on a former employer. Unusual ingredients may be added in such cases.

Cookbook Recipe
Minny's Fried Chicken
Minny’s fried chicken is always perfect—never burned, but never underdone. Fried chicken is one of the first foods Minny teaches the inexperienced Celia to make. It is the dish that brings these two women together in friendship. The recipe is fairly easy to learn—so easy that even those with no cooking background have a fair shot at mastering it.

Cookbook Recipe
Celia's Mile High Meringue
A sweet dessert perfect for summer days, Celia’s lemon meringue pie can be served warm or cold. Celia normally reserves this pie for special occasions like the dinner she makes for Minnie. What better way to show your appreciation for a friend than with this light summer treat?

Cookbook Recipe
Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are a classic Southern dish, normally served cold as a side dish for brunch or luncheons. They are best with paprika although some prefer them without. The housewives of Jackson often enjoy this light appetizer over conversations with friends.

Cookbook Recipe
Black-Eyed Peas
Celia serves black-eyed peas as a side dish in the elegant dinner she prepares for her close friend Minnie Jackson. Black-eyed peas are a straightforward staple for a Southern meal and are best served warm.

Thank you for your interest in alleyl's cookbook and for helping support the BakeSpace community of independent cookbook authors!

Here’s some quick information regarding how our cookbook platform works, along with a few tips for making the most of cookbooks you add to your library.

But first… If you’re new to BakeSpace, take a minute to visit our "About" page to learn more about our delicious community, which has been helping home cooks swap recipes and connect with fellow foodies worldwide since 2006.

What is the Cookbook Café Platform?

Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.

How do I "download" a cookbook?

You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.

When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.

While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.

Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!

Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe. In addition, you can connect directly with each cookbook author, leave comments/reviews and even ask questions about recipe substitutions, history, etc.

Need more info/help or want to provide some feedback?

We're happy to help! Send us an email to cookbooks@bakespace.com.

I’d love to make my own cookbook - how do I do that?

It's easy and free... visit our Make Your Own Cookbook section to get started.
