Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2009 Winner: Best Food Literature Book AND Best Easy Recipes Book
A collection of memories and recipes to warm you heart and lighten your spirit! Read through the pages, close your eyes, travel back in time to lives well lived on a tiny, Pacific island, the island of Guam.
Half of this book is dedicated to the collection of memories and stories Paula has received from people all over the world. These stories have been divided into decades: 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, etc. There are stories from veterans who served during WWII, from folks who were stationed on Guam recently, from those who found work there for a few years, from those young ladies who were whisked away, married and have been unable to return home, from those still living on Guam and more.
The other half of Remember Guam is a collection of 20 recipes in print...AND on video (these recipes are not included in A Taste of Guam). The once-password protected video page is now open to be freely viewed for all 20 recipes and may also be individually viewed below. Yes, you actually get an up-close and personal look at how each dish is made. The list of recipes are noted below.
Remember Guam also includes the Chamorro alphabet, a pronunciation guide to "hard to pronounce" villages / places on Guam, a sheet on how to set a Chamorro fiesta table, and a few more interesting facts you need to know about Guam and Guam food!
"Hey Paula, I just wanted to let you know that I truly enjoyed "Remember Guam!" What a great set of experiences you have captured! In reading those, I recall mine and how I miss those days gone by. If only I could go back just for a moment. The recipes that you have included are things that I will try so as to recreate the personal experiences of my childhood.....which I took for granted. A heartfelt "THANK YOU" Paula - you've brought me back home in spirit."
NOTE: Only a few photos from this video were used in the book...they are on the back cover.
**NOTE: Remember Guam was published without food pictures contained on the inside of the cookbook. Most photos below were taken after publication.**
