DESSERT COMES FIRST: From Blog to Book by Lori Baltazar!
The DESSERT COMES FIRST BOOK is a special cookbook/memoir by one of Manila's Top Food Bloggers, Lori Baltazar of www.dessertcomesfirst.com. It's a celebration of food in four forms: essays, food porn photos, chef profiles, and secret recipes.
I was impressed with the quality of the book and by the discipline it took to complete this 14-month project. It's a real privilege to be a witness to Lori's blossoming from a food blogger/writer to the author of a best-selling book.
From a guy who doesn't know how to cook, I can really appreciate this book. Not only does it share Lori's own yummy stories, like her travels to foodie places in Italy and Japan, it also documents her encounters with distinguished chefs and food personalities that I also personally admire.
It's great to be able read about the profiles of Chefs Him Uy de Baron, Ed Bugia, Stevie Villacin, Ricky Morelos, Karen Young, Roshan Samtani, Tina Diaz, Gina Lopez, the gifted girls behind Kitchen’s Best (Roselyn, Martina, and Bern Tiangco), and the late Chef Ed Quimson, all captured in this book.
This is definitely Manila's must-have cookbook of 2013!
