I always buy books about Guam with an open mind, wary but open. As a displaced chamorro, I want my children to learn our culture, and my friends to be exposed to it and books are a primary form of sharing this knowledge. From the moment I opened this book until I was finished, I felt a wonderful connection to the different writers. Thank you Paula for completing this compliation and for publishing this. I enjoyed that it was affordable but would have gladly paid for a hard back version of this!!!
I love this book. Being from Guam, every recipe I tried is superb.Tastes just like home. I would recommend this book to all who love"Guamanian/Chamorro" food or those who like to try different foods.
Remember GuamPaula Ann Lujan QuineneISBN: 0-7414-5503-xRemember Guam is the most heart felt collection of memories and recipes, I have ever read before. We need more books that are this delightful, and heart warming. This is the only book I have opened and felt as if I had been right there along with the other occupants of Guam, and felt right at home. Guam is a special community as everyone has special memories and the completeness of the memoires ties everything together, along with the recipes that are the added bonus.Paula gives everyone the inside passport to visit Guam with this book, without leaving your livingroom. Paula shows the love she has for her home and it would make a wonderful gift to any and all who wants to learn more about other cultures. I highly recommend this book to everyone looking to find something new or old which ever you perfer to look at it. Keep writing Paula it is wonderful.
A delightful fusion of a tasty cookbook and cultural memories and milestones throughout the decades on a beautiful Pacific island whose treasures are lost on most. Remember Guam fills that void perfectly for readers, making you feel like you are a part of this special community, and the uniqueness of this book including recipes tied to the anecdotes along the way is unmatched. Paula Ann Lujan Quinene provides the reader with a ticket to an incredible journey from the moment that you open the cover. After trying out most of the recipes and following along to the instructional videos online, you cannot walk away from this book not understanding the author's love of home and passion to share it. Would make a great gift for anyone interested in learning about other cultures, reminiscing on their experiences in Guam, or for your favorite chef looking to expand their culinary palate! Highly recommended and very well done, Remember Guam left me wanting to plan a holiday to experience everything the island had to offer first hand!
Paula has done a terrific job of putting this book together in an easy to follow format. The end result of each of the recipes I have done has been just like I remember from growing up on Guam. The video support on her website is invaluable for making even a relative novice such as myself able to recreate authentic Chamorro dishes. The photos and memories that are included are at the same time entertaining and informative. Thank you so much for doing this cookbook!
This is an excellent book and it contains a very accurate depiction of what I remember growing up in Agana, which is now called Hagatna (why the name change, I ask?). I recommend this book to my sister in OK & friends who miss Guam. Thanks, Paula, for your insight & your cookbooks as I have those, too.
This book brought back some wonderful childhood memories. I wasn't born on Guam, but both my parentswere. We celebrate our traditions everyday in our lives and are passed down to our children. My children have not been on Guam and I fell with others sharing their experiences and memories they will have an idea of what its like to be there. They have experienced the food, so this book will also help them how to make them with the recipes, (I still use the finger and hand measuring for ingrediences) and share them with other family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful book. Yu'us Ma'ase
This book brings back memories. If you have ever visited this tiny little island each page is filled with memories and you can relate to. If you have never been to Guam, it is a wonderful introduction to the culture and island.
