Format: Hardcover
I'm not sure what the other reviewer meant by the book not covering traditional Filipino food he's known. This was lovingly put together by Philippine-born Filipinos famous for their work in documenting authentic Filipino cuisine... very unlike other cookbooks whose writers only parachute into the country, if at all, and compile recipes for publication.

True, it's not a typical cookbook that focuses solely on recipes. The first ten or so pages are essays. Its value is not only in the beautiful photographs, but also in the substantial background it provides for Filipino food. What a deal at $12!

You can preview the book above with Amazon's "Search inside this book" feature. The reviews of the edition that came out in 1999 are here: The Food of the Philippines: Authentic Recipes from the Pearl of the Orient.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book mainly as a resource for Filipino food. The book has a very apealing layout but if you're looking for a cookbok, this is not the one. This is more of a coffee table book. I was disappointed with the recipe selection because most of them are pretty "entry level" recipes.

this filipino cookbook is one of my favorites. you will find the most popular filipino recipes. my only regret is that more recipes were not included. that is probably because the high quality of the book, beautiful color photos, high quality paper, hardcover, etc. is very reasonably priced. a great gift or addition to any asian cookbook collection. especially great for those interested in filipino cooking

My wife and her family are from the Philippines. They often cook things that they claim are Filipino and try to pass it off on everyone. As a joke I started doing some research and found they were not actual dishes from the Philippines. To prove my point I bought this book and a few others. Needless to say the books have been hidden and buried away, who needs the proof distracting us from what we actually want? This book was actually great though from what I could tell before it was hidden.

I was born in the Philippines and came to the US at the age of 14. Tried Pork Menudo recipe from this book i borrowed from our local library.

Pork Menudo turns into an Italian menudo disaster. The recipe calls for an 8 ounces of Pork Loin with 3/4 of tomato paste. I should have known that this is way too much, but still proceed with the recipe. ICK!
Turns into a marinara instead!

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! It is best if you google a traditional Filipino recipe and read reviews to find out how the recipe turns out. This way you won't be wasting ingredients, just throwing it away like i did with mine.
