“The Color Purple” is a beautiful film based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer-Prize winning novel. Directed by Stephen Spielberg, it stars Whoopie Goldberg, Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey. “The Color Purple” was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, but did not win any. This movie was ROBBED because of politics and a lot of other ugly things. The Best Picture Oscar went to “Out of Africa.” WHAT! What do you think? We welcome your comments.

This movie has beautiful Cinematography, great music and Oscar nominated performances from Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, and Oprah Winfrey. The video below is of the dining room scene when Celie finally breaks from Mister and how the total family dynamic changed that day.

The Color Purple is set in North Carolina, and you better believe Celie and Mister enjoyed some barbecue. They probably served it up at the “Jook Joint.” Our Guest Chef Estella (Curley) Johnson is from the heart of North Carolina, and this is a recipe that goes back decades. You will never look at barbecue the same way again. We are sharing with you the “reel” deal!
