“This is the book that I’ve always wanted to write.” I told Amy Besa, co-author of Memories of Philippine Kitchens, a book of Filipino stories and recipes gathered from all over the country.
“I get that a lot,” she replied with a sweet smile on her face. She was about to sign the book, so she asked, “What’s your name?”
“GJ,” I said. “I’m a food blogger. I blog about my lola’s recipes.”
“That’s great! You should write a book too!” she said. And that’s the same message that she scribbled as she signed her name on the title page.
