i am a filipino

this is a cookbook, cultural history written by nicole ponseca & miguel trinidad. it is my goal to read and cook my way through this book, and writing about it through this blog. but i will enjoy several journeys on this blog - not just this book. and chances are, i will embark on several before finishing even one.

not only is this the name of the book, but it is me. i was born to filipino parents at a time, i suspect, that it would not have been acceptable to raise me themselves. i was adopted, and raised in an irish catholic family - large and wonderful. i learned to love meat and potatoes with my entire being. the most foreign of foods i ate as a child were italian dishes and take out chinese food.

through this book, i hope to learn more about my filipino heritage.
