“An engrossing, page-turner of a cookbook.” —Brian McGinn, Emmy-nominated director and executive producer, Chef’s Table You may not realize that Filipino Americans are the second-largest Asian American group living in the United States, especially when you compare the number of, say, Japanese, Thai, and Korean restaurants to Filipino ones. There’s a lot of speculation about why Filipino food hasn’t taken off the way other Asian cuisines have, but one thing’s for sure: there’s something for everyone here. Lauded as the next big thing by the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Jonathan Gold, Filipino food can be somewhat difficult to define, as it melds indigenous dishes with myriad foreign influences from Chinese and Spanish to Japanese and even American. And as Filipinos have left their archipelago and set down roots all over the world, it has proven to be a highly adaptable cuisine, lending itself to different diets, preferences, and ingredients. The New Filipino Kitchen collects 30 recipes and stories from expat Filipinos, all of whom have taken their favorite dishes with them, preserving their food memories and, if necessary, tweaking their recipes to work in a new environment or, in the case of some chefs, a more modern context. With contributions from White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford, silver Bocuse d’Or winner Christian André Pettersen, five-time Palanca Award winner and poet Francis Macansantos, and the “Food Buddha” Rodelio Aglibot, this is a multifaceted, nuanced introduction to the world of Filipino food and food culture.
Selected as a semifinalist in the 2007 IACP Cookbook Awards In The Filipino-American Kitchen, Chicago-based chef and teacher Jennifer Aranas introduces the exotic flavors of her ancestral Filipino homeland, taking readers on a gastronomic tour — from sweet and spicy to smoky and tangy — while transforming delicious native recipes into easy-to-make meals. Even if you're an experienced Filipino cook, you will discover new favorites among this collection of over 100 recipes, which includes everything from appetizers to desserts. The recipes combine traditional Filipino cooking with New World variations, reflecting the author's Filipino-American roots. She offers innovative interpretations of native recipes such as Duck Adobo, Green Papaya and Jicama Salad, Salmon Kilaw, Lamb Casoy, and Ambrosia Shortcake, alongside traditional favorites such as Crispy Lumpia Egg Rolls, Hearty Paella, Pancit Noodles and Sweet Halo-Halo Sundaes. The "Basics" chapter introduces the building blocks of Filipino cuisine, showing you step-by-step how to create authentic Filipino food. A detailed buying guide leads you through the bustling Asian market, demystifying the flavor essentials — such as coconut, palm vinegar, shrimp paste and calamansi lime — that set the food of the Philippines apart from its Asian neighbors. With this Filipino cookbook at your side, you can share these mouthwatering Filipino dishes with your friends and family.

Sushi, kimchi, baklava, and tofu once seemed exotic. These Asian foods have made their way around the world. But how representative are they of their home cuisines? Asian Cuisines: Food Culture from East Asia to Turkey and Afghanistan covers the food history, food culture, and food science of the world’s largest and most diverse continent, not only East, Southeast, and South Asia, but also Central and West Asia, including the countries that straddle Asia and the Middle East. Contributors to Asian Cuisines include renowned scholars E. N. Anderson, Paul D. Buell, and Darra Goldstein. A glossary provides a quick overview of culinary terms specific to the cuisines. Chapters discuss local ingredients and dishes, and look at the connection between food and social, political, economic, and cultural developments. Each article comes with an easy-to-make recipe to give readers a taste of more than a dozen tantalizing and varied cuisines. This compact volume will be valuable in food studies programs and fills a unique spot on the shelf of anyone who loves to explore the meanings and flavors of world cuisines.
Born on Lanaʻi, Chef Adam Tabura grew up far from the influences of fast food and supermarkets. He learned to appreciate wholesome foods and traditional styles of cooking, often based on ingredients he gathered himself from the garden or the ocean. As a kid, he may have yearned for McDonald's burgers, but today, he calls his upbringing a blessing that taught him about food at its most basic level and which formed the basis of his creativity as a chef. A Filipino Kitchen reflects Adam's favorite childhood meals, cooked by his grandfather or shared by neighbors and friends. It is also influenced by Adam's travels to the Philippines, which taught him much about the roots of the foods he grew up with. Filipino cooking is rising in popularity across the U.S., where both the size and number of Filipino communities is increasing dramatically. (Filipinos represent Hawaiʻi's largest ethnic group.) Filipino food can be enjoyed everywhere - food trucks, fast-food establishments, malls, supermarkets and family restaurants. And with more restaurants headed by Filipino chefs, the cuisine is making an appearance on more upscale menus -- Publisher's description.

'What The Heck is Filipino Food? A Beginner's Guide to Filipino Cooking, ' is the first cookbook in Australia solely based on Filipino food and has since won Best Asian Cuisine Book (Australia) at the 18th Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. The Author, Adrian Briones, is a prolific Melbourne-based food blogger (foodrehab.com.au) by moonlight and digital advertising wiz kid by day. Two years ago he travelled back to his birthplace, the Philippines, eating and photographing his way through hawker stalls and restaurants from metro Manila to the white sandy beaches of Boracay. All the way, gathering invaluable tales of food traditions and folklore from passionate locals. The book, which is in two parts, Merienda (snacks/light meals) and larger main dishes, replicating the Filipino style of eating, is based on his mother's recipes. Briones over a two year period lovingly cooked, tested and photographed all the dishes in addition to creating new recipes of his own. He even experienced a near kitchen fire or two during the process - all in the name of research with the intention of telling the unique story of Filipino food culture to Australians. Born in the 'Culinary Capital' of the Philippines, San Fernando, Pampanga, Briones describes Filipino food as Asian Soul Food. "Filipino food holds a unique place in the context of Asian cuisine," Briones says. My book provides an easy guide to traditional Filipino cooking and culture. There are also a few twists on the classics from 'Pulled Pork Adobo Pie' to 'Frenchy Filipino Toast with Maple Butter' - taking traditional recipes into the 21st century." Briones' fun, humorous and passionate personality is represented strongly throughout the book. The design is inspired by his love of comics, complete with flashy quote boxes, superhero fonts and cartoon characters. Along with easy-to-follow and mouth-watering recipes, the pages are filled with humorous childhood stories, giving you a fantastic sense of what it means to grow up Filipino.
