Memories of Philippine Kitchens - Book Launch

We had a great weekend of book signings and EATing while hosting authors, Amy Besa and Romy Dorotan. Amy unfortunately had laryngitis and could hardly speak but Romy stepped up and explained their reasons for creating their impressive tribute to Philippine cuisine. The book and their talks were received with great favor at each LA location. They donated a copy to add to the Filipino American Library collection. The main event held at Remy's on Temple drew a large and lively crowd that were treated to a live cooking demo from the cookbook done by the original recipe creator, Fe Rael Villadolid, Amy's auntie. It was Pork Sinigang and it was to die for. She showed us how to cook it quick and easy, because she explained that was how she cooked for 3 hungry children. There was plenty for all and a great meal by itself. (see page 47 of the book) Great shared memories, great people, great food.... you should have been there!
