In the first medical missionary to China, the Reverend Dr Peter Parker, founded the Canton Ophthalmic Hospital where he pioneered lithotomy and other surgical operations for Chinese patients.
It's just not because this is about the foods that he had when he was still alive but also because the book is a sweet summary of Rizal's life in just pages.
Maria's stories just focused on what's important: She also peppered her narratives with interesting anecdotes along with the usual cold historical facts. I'd read a handful of Rizal biographies, the Looking Back series of Ambeth Ocampo and Rizal's three last one being unfinished novels but it is in the book when I learned about the following: In real life and at that time, it was Hotel de Oriente that used to be a majestic hotel near the Binondo Church.
When Rizal went back from Hong Kong inhe checked in to this hotel and met the again Lala Ary, the manager. Again, because he met her earlier during his first sojourn in Singapore managing Hotel Europa.
Well, these are the new interesting non-food related trivias. The foods are of course another story. We interviewed her by asking questions about the book. She gamely and intelligently answered those. Afterwards, we had our first food fest. It was another unforgettable event because it distended our tummies probably just like Rizal in Spain with his fellow Illustrados during his first sojourn.
Me and my wife cooked Carne Asada that, according to the cook of the Rizal family was young Rizal's favorite.
I also cooked Leichter Kartoffelsalat German potato salad. Then I bought with me a box of Thailand tamarind and with my fellow book lover friend Ella's help, turned the tamarind fruits into jam prior to the interview.
All of these foods have recipes in the book and it was amazing to learn how to cook them in the way that was probably how people during Rizal's time prepared them.
Maria gifted me 3 of her other books. I am keeping two of the books and giving out copies of the third one to the book club members later as prizes. I gave out brand new copies of other books to the members during the event anyway. It's unbelievable how a book club can make my weekend very interesting with all the new recipes perfected, new trivias about Rizal learned and remembered and the three new titles from an author that I was very fortunate to meet, engaged in intellectual conversation and exchanged gifts with.
Thank you, Ma'am Felice for a wonderful Saturday.
