” Sagana is an apt title for this work by G. B. Korten. Sagana translates to Abundance in Filipino and this work is to just a compilation of recipes, but a delicious serving of stories with sides of nostalgia and kitchen wisdom set on the author’s life and love affair with cooking. This work is inspirational in its simplicity and truthfulness when depicting Filipino food and cuisine- with no apologies against the global background of her life.
I am inspired and thankful for this contribution to Philippines cuisine. I hope that more people swill read this book for its second printing. There is so much to learn from it and I implore everyone to savor every word of it.
