Now, as a new parent myself, I can only hope that my little one will some day show a curiosity in the cultural dishes I prepare in our own kitchen. Luckily, his curiosity is getting a head start whenever I read him Cora Cooks Pancit.
For those of you lucky booksellers attending the Northern California Independent Bookseller's Association trade show in October, Dorina will be signing copies of Cora Cooks Pancit at our table at 12:30. Mark your trade show schedules!
