Cora loves being in the kitchen, but she always gets stuck doing the kid jobs. One day, Cora finally gets to be Mama's assistant chef. With Mama's help, Cora does the grown-up jobs like shredding the chicken and soaking the noodles. And when dinner is finally served, Cora waits anxiously to see what everyone thinks of her cooking.

Dorina Lazo Gilmore's text and Kristi Valiant’s illustrations delightfully capture the warmth between mother and daughter as they share a piece of their Filipino heritage.
