    This is a very good example of how being an effective ad copywriter does not automatically flow into a talent for literary writing Not very well written in my opinion I found the form and language lacking in depth but at least one of the few attempts at writing about the cultural adjustment a Filipino faces in migrating to the United States If only for the effort I must encourage

    The way the Escober takes pains to explain every single Tagalog word even transliterating putang ina mo belief and pop culture reference is taxing I prefer Junot Díaz’s Spanglish approach the words and culture ought to speak for themselves It’s one way that Escober’s writing though good intentioned reeks of insincerity Interesting shtick having each chapter an introduction to a Filipino recipe And I will say that sharing the Filipino immigrant experience is important work But overall Not My Bowl of Rice is not my bowl of rice

    Written from the point of view of a Filipina who immigrates to the USA this book is a great introduction to Filipino culture and cooking A Filipino dishrecipe is the theme of each chapter As a Filipina immigrant myself I related well with Ligaya the protagonist This is an account of the struggles and joys of growing up Filipinoa in American society Very easy read
