Title: Nostalgia: In The Kitchen, Vol. II
Author: Chona Trinidad
The author, an acknowledged food and social critic, has produced two volumes of Nostalgia, a title taken from her weekly column in the Women's Journal. The first volume is The Way We Were, which is a chronicle of Filipino life, stressing how our "social graces and refinements", referring to mores and customs, tend to evolve.
The second Trinidad volume, In The Kitchen, is a huge serving of Philippine culinary history about people, places, events, and cuisines worth remembering. In this book, Trinidad dishes out some of the best and most interesting accounts of the Filipino "foodies" lifestyle.
