Summary, etc.:
"Filipino recipes from the creator of the legendary Eggslut in LA, host of the hit online series The Burger Show, and the most prominent Filipino chef in the US"-- Provided by publisher.
Cailan, arguably the most high-profile chef in America's Filipino food movement, spent his youth feeling like he wasn't Filipino enough to be Filipino and not American enough to be an American. As an amboy, the term for a Filipino raised in America, he had to overcome cultural traditions and family expectations to find his own path to success. In this memoir/cookbook, Cailan tells that story through his recipes. -- adapted from inside front cover.
