This book is in the cataloging pile that caught my eye!
What an interesting read.
It has stories about the creative ways of preparing and packaging Filipino delicacies as well as the persistence and ingenuity of the people who make them. I had to pause from meeting my cataloging quota to read a few chapters.
It is the book's cover that got me first: a stack of sundot kulangot.

Amazing how one book can channel me back to those memories of childhood.
Apart from the folkloric appeal of the narrative, the photos are art pieces complementing the book's concept of a vanishing culture put under a microscope.
