Cora loves being in the kitchen, but she always gets stuck doing the kid jobs like licking the spoon. One day, when her older sisters and brother head out, Cora finally gets the chance to be Mama’s assistant chef to make pancit, her favorite noodle dish. When dinner is finally served, her siblings find out that Cora did all their grown-up tasks, and Cora waits anxiously to see what everyone thinks of her cooking.
