Elizabeth Ann Besa Quirino, from Asian in America
For over 25 years, I have been cooking Filipino and Asian dishes almost every day. This blog is all about sharing with you what I’ve been cooking throughout my life.
When I moved to America over 20 years ago, my Dad worried a lot about my well-being in a foreign country.
My name is Elizabeth Besa Quirino and I live in the east coast with my husband and two sons. Before we moved, I assured my father I was going to be fine because Mom taught me how to cook. Cooking was what I knew best. It was one of my best coping mechanisms.
And this is what this blog is all about… to share with you my Filipino & Asian recipes and how I find a way to cook these dishes in my American kitchen everyday. Come on and grab a seat, and enjoy my gastronomic adventures!
Having become acquainted with the “Mango Queen” through Twitter, I have a hard time referring to her by any other name. On Twitter, she is fun and warm, so I was happy to discover — after seeing her in an elevator at a cookbook conference — that she’s the same in real life. She is also an expert on Filipino home-cooking, as you’ll discover when you check out her blog.
Go — & read — & cook.
