A Bookworm in Manila

Bookworms are everywhere! Christine, this week's Bookworm in the Pantry, creates her lovely blog, Ramblings from a Gypsy Soul, in Manila, The Philippines . Whenever I read her posts, I learn something new about Filipino culture and cuisine — and, of course, I want to get on a plane and go to the places she visits. Christine has traveled to the US, Thailand, Mexico, Vietnam, Egypt, and more. She photographs, she cooks, and, oh yes, she reads; her wish list features dozens of books I'd love to have in my own library.

UPDATE. Christine recommended:

  • Feeding a Yen
  • Havana Salsa
  • The Mistress of Spices
  • Her Fork in the Road
  • Extra Virgin

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through early June.

I love her blog too, so many interesting things to see and learn about. I haven't been there in a while though so thanks for the reminder!

Oh yay, I'm up! Thank you so much for including me, Lydia. I had fun going through my shelves for this but even more fun reading everyone else's recommendations! :)

I always come and look - one of these days I'll get my list in order...

I love Christine's blog! Thanks for the list - I've got to read "Her Fork in the Road!"

Most of these books are new to me (thanks, Christine!) but I know and enjoyed (and look forward to rereading) Feeding a Yen. Calvin Trillin is an enjoyable read.
