    Entertaining with Ease: Etiquette and Protocol for the Modern Filipino

    Ada Ledesma Mabilangan

    Winner, National Book Award, Special Interest, 1997
    “This book goes beyond ‘how-to’ to indicate ‘why’ and ‘so what.’ It alludes to our innate hospitality, to our other-orientedness, to our wish to make guests experience the warmth of family and friendship. It suggests ways to use native accessories and customs to beautify tables and party settings, and also to express Filipino aesthetics. Finally it advocates that native courtesy be expressed in Filipino ways, so that social occasions may also be explorations and discoveries of our culture.”? Doreen Fernandez, in the foreword
