A San Francisco Bay Area author’s collection of his favorite recipes learned from his Filipino mother’s kitchen, picked up from his world travel, and developed from his association with other food enthusiasts. With each pictured recipe comes a personal story, a pinch of trivia and a dash of humor — all meant to engage the reader in some exciting kitchen talk or dinner conversation. Come in for the stories. Stay for the recipes.
“Taking you from Filipino favorites like pancit and chicken adobo to Indonesian nasi goreng (fried rice) and Vietnamese claypot catfish, Rene Astudillo’s “My Bay Kitchen” offers a delightfully warm account of the delicious international adventures at his stove. The recipes will entice — along with the travel tales with which he garnishes each dish. Do not read this on an empty stomach.”
—Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, Author of “A Tiger in the Kitchen: A Memoir of Food and Family.“
“With mouth-watering recipes from Thailand, Spain, Bahamas, Hawaii, Philippines, and elsewhere, this around-the-world cookbook reminds us of the endless pair of cooking with remembering journeys and loved ones.”
–R. Zamora Linmark, Author of “Rolling the R’s,” “Leche,” and “Drive-By Vigils.”
