I am so happy your are back! I am new to cooking Filipino food and your blog was my favorite one that I found. I was so disappointed to think you had abandoned your blog.

Welcome back!

Good to see you blogging again, Marvin. Hope all is well with the book writing. Speaking of books, I've gotta get me a copy of Linamnam. :)

Yay! Glad your back. Missed your blog.Looking forward to your book.

I think I got to get my hands on the book. My fellow food bloggers in Dubai are keen to learning a LOT more about Filipino food. So I have to do my reading really quick. I ask my family to get me this book along with Doreen Fernandez books. I hope somebody would be kind enough to carry my books here :)

Dude, where have you been? We're all curious to hear how the book writing and food truck business is going (especially your fellow Filipinos).

P.S. I am sure I've been following your blog since its inception. Who knew that years later, you'd be a father and I'd become a wife, and you'd leave engineering to follow your dreams! You've been a huge entrepreneurial inspiration for me, a young Filipina, for years. Over the last year, I've been working on starting my own business after following the journey of yours. Thank you so much for sharing! Still wishing you and your family all the best :)

Have I ever mentioned that I found this blog by accident about a year ago? I was looking up Filipino recipes and stumbled upon Burnt Lumpia. I read the title and thought, "What the Pho?" And here I am still catching up on your blog. Love it!

So glad to see you back! I received my Linamnam book and can't put it down. Can't wait to visit PI and try some of these dishes. It has also given me some great cooking ideas.

Marvin! I'm back! :-D I, too, am sorry I've been absent for such a long time. I stopped reading blogs for some time (life got in the way), but am now slowly easing back into it. Something reminded me of Burnt Lumpia tonight, so I decided to check out some of your recent posts. Then I saw that, more than a year ago, you posted about getting a book deal! WHOA!!! Congratulations! It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, and you truly deserve it. :-) I'm very excited for it to come out and will surely get hold of a copy when does.

I also have "Linamnam." I've met Claude and Mary Ann, not only because I've eaten at Bale Dutung a couple of times, but also because Mila, Nena and I once showed up at his door unannounced when we tried to stalk Bourdain, and then later, I saw him at a party. He recognized me, and I told him that I'm the niece of one of his old friends (my father's family is Kapampangan), so that hopefully, he wouldn't think I'm (completely) deranged. ;-) And yes, they are truly a lovely, gracious couple.

I'm so thrilled that you've gone from being a tentative cook and blogger, still learning about Filipino food, to a food truck owner, and now a cookbook author! And I'm very proud that I've actually met you! If you come visit again, I hope we can meet up once more. :-)

Nice to see you back here. Plus - I'm waiting for the moment when I can order Linamnam to be sent here to Korea!

Damn this is like a backpacker's food dream. Searched a bit and a book in San Francisco in case anyone is in that area: http://www.arkipelagobooks.com/product_info.php?products_id=1178. Thanks for the head's up on this Marvin!

I think it's a great book of Filipino recipes. I'd love to have a copy also to learn more of Filipino recipes. Thanks a lot for the post, it was a great read today. =)

After the No Reservations episode and the mention of the book on your website I had purchased the the book at National book store while on Christmas vacation in Manila as well as the other book the Claude had been a part of.
My favourite part of the book / guide was the extensive longanisa section pointing out regional differences.
