Not My Bowl of Rice is a coined idiom that has the same flavor as Not My Cup Of Tea. (e.g. To be honest, cooking's not really my bowl of rice.) It is also the title of this novel about a young Filipina immigrant's life in America. What is it to be a Filipina woman, daughter, friend, lover and wife in America? The answers, oftentimes complex and startling are told in narration by the main character Ligaya de Guzman. She has a penchant for cooking and her story is peppered with tidbits about Filipino and other international dishes. In fact, every chapter is titled after a dish and carries its complete recipe as well. Throughout the novel, these dishes help move the story smoothly, dramatically, deliciously.Although it features a Filipina protagonist, Not My Bowl Of Rice reflects the story of each and every one who has come to this country in search of the proverbial milk and honey. Not My Bowl of Rice is so witty and tasty, it should come with a warning not to read if you are hungry.
