Cora Cooks Pancit

Warning: Do not attempt to read this delicious and cozy story on an empty tummy!

This story of Cora and her Filipino-American family is a perfect mix of a day-in-the-life of a big happy family and how-to make pancit, a tasty Filipino dish of rice noodles, veggies, and chicken. Cora has been waiting for the day when she will be allowed to wear her grandfather's red apron and help prepare a favorite family meal. Find out how she fares in making the dish, and with the recipe included, you can read the story and eat it, too!

Having grown up in a Filipino-Italian family, the author Dorina K. Lazo Gilmore has drawn from memories of her childhood to create Cora and her family. Cora Cooks Pancit was APALA's 2009-2010 Picture Book Winner.
