Drumroll …

 I just love the black and white photos on the cover! Grandmothers Nellie Wong (center) and the late Munni Khursheed Ashraf (right) are featured in the book.

A couple of days ago, an unsuspecting me found a media mail package sitting on my front doorstep.

Hmm … I wasn’t expecting any new books nor had I been contacted by any PR people wanting to send me something fresh-off-the-press. What could it be?

When I opened the package, I found two galley copies of The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook nestled neatly within. (A galley copy is an advanced proof of a book that is usually sent to reviewers).

Whoa.

My heart almost stopped.

I jumped up and down till I was silly.

Then I had to sit down.

Once I recovered, I turned the bound book over and over in my hands to make sure it was tangible. Yes, it was real!

The book has a soft cover and the interior photos are in black and white for now but there it was–the cumulation of over two years of hard work. And most swoon-worthy of all, my name is on the cover! 

Once the tingles stopped, what did I do? I cooked from it!

As grandma always says, please share!
