Ok, This is SweetPosted: June 30, 2010
As the culmination of my semester long rumination/obsession with Filipino-American identity and cuisine, I wrote this monster profile piece for my creative nonfiction class on the co-owner of Purple Yam, a Filipino restaurant in Ditmas Park, which you can read here.
Why am I telling you this? Because Grub Street, New York Magazine’s food blog, reported that on Saturday, White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford (a native Filipino) and assistant White House chef Sam Kass trekked all the way from the capitol city to eat brunch at Purple Yam!!
So why am I not famous yet??
