Book Description

Are you tired of serving up the same old dishes? Then this is the book for you! Start today and discover delicious inexpensive meals in Filipino Cookbook Recipes that will impress your family and friends. Introduce them to Asian cooking as they have never tasted before. Filipino author Ingrid brings you recipes that are both traditional and the most popular. Spoil your family with dishes that are fun to make! In addition she includes recipes for traditional desserts that melt in your mouth and make you want to go back for more.

Here is a taste of some of the excellent recipes in this fifty plus page book of recipes and photos, accompanied with the native history:

Afritada is an excellent example of a Filipino dish that has been inherited from the Spanish colonizers. A Filipino version of a Cocido, more commonly known as a Spanish stew. They are stews made from meat or fish with vegetables.

Bulalo is a beef soup slowly simmered to give a rich broth. The Bulalo is a comfort food, that is, when you are in need of a comforting hug. The cooked marrow that is tapped out of the bone is the prized ingredient. Bulalo is best eaten hot with lots of rice.

Ginataang Kalabasa or squash cooked in coconut milk is one of the tastiest uniquely Pinoy vegetable dishes in the Filipino menu. It is an easy dish to prepare.

When you can look forward to rewarding yourself at the end of a long day with the pleasure of a satisfying meal it brings smiles all around. Included are dishes my cherished Grandmother (my Lola) lovingly prepared for me as a child. Now it is my turn to graciously offer them to you. Mabuhay!

4.0 out of 5 stars Must try the Tibok-tibok! February 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Filipino Cookbook Recipes: The Most Loved Authentic Filipino Dishes is a unique collection of family recipes (in the author's words "mostly for party dishes") from the Phillipines put together by author Ingrid Legaya, who shares her food culture along with her recipes. No recipes copied and pasted from the Internet here!

While I've had the pleasure of eating food from the Phillipines several times while on the West Coast, I'm more familiar with the foods of Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Because the Spanish colonized all of those places, traditional food shares similar influences and I find it rather interesting to see the differences of the added Asian heritage on various dishes.

Each recipe has a story, serving tips and often a picture. Ingrid is careful to give substitutions for more familiar ingredients where she can. The book does have an interactive Table of Contents, making it easy to navigate, and many of the recipes will be reasonably accessible to the home cook.

I did find a couple of minor formatting issues that seem to be common to many Kindle books, most prominently the Table of Contents not showing in the menu and the page registration being a bit off kilter. I also spotted a few places where Ingrid forgot to give the alternative ingredient. Unless you've read the whole book you may be at a loss for calamansi juice in the Mechado recipe (which I intend to try the second I get to a store for beef) and I do wish that she had specified what kind of cheese in the recipe for Caldereta. When all is said and done, however, this is a well put-together short book that I've enjoyed reading and will find a permanent place for in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice collection of Filipino recipes~ January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I was in college, a Filipino friend of mine would share her mother's homemade adobo with me. I loved it. After college, I got a job and a Filipino co-worker shared her own homemade adobo with me. This was long ago, and I sometimes long for this delicious dish with a vinegar "bite."


I was excited to see this cookbook, but conspicuously absent was a recipe for adobo, a Filipino staple. However, I was not disappointed for long because (as of 1/31/2013), if one purchases this cookbook, one is entitled to download a free bonus copy of "Filipino Chicken Recipes: Taste the Difference of Authentic Filipino Recipes." In this bonus e-book there is a recipe for chicken adobo made with coconut milk. Yay!

But back to the this cookbook. The collection of recipes is very enticing. One recipe I found very intriguing is the "Tortang Talong." This is an eggplant omelet. I am always looking for innovative ways to use eggplant.

The dishes in this cookbook call for a variety of Asian sauces (meaning that they pack a nice flavor punch). While most savory recipes out there call for a few cloves of garlic, some of these recipes call for "heads of garlic." Sign me up!! The more garlic the better!

The Hispanic influences on Filipino cooking are clearly evident in this cookbook (being half Hispanic myself it was easy to spot the Spanish flair of some dishes). One thing that stood out to me was the recipe for "Leche Flan." Flan is a common Hispanic dessert. I took special note of the fact that the flan recipe in this book calls for a whopping 8 egg yolks. On average, the Spanish flan recipes with which I am familiar call for anywhere from two to six yolks. Of course, one should enjoy this dish in moderation.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book May 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a nice little book. I love different ethnic cook books to try and sample the different tastes of the world. These recipes look to be quite good. A plus is the short little story about each dish that is included with each recipe. Some recipes have photos, others do not. The formatting is ok, but could be better. There are links to each individual recipe from the Table of Contents, so navigation is quite easy. However, there is not a page break between each recipe, so they can kind of run together sometimes.

2.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't for me...not what I was looking for April 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was hoping to find some old recipes that my family used to cook. Those recipes were never written down and kind of died off when the relatives did.

I did not find these recipes to be my own personal most loved dishes.

But someone else may.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, user friendly too June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I like the stories and tips for serving that come with each recipe. I'd say that this also has a pretty natural flow to it as far as writing and feels quite authentic. Although i'm not filipino myself I enjoy when I feel a book seems pretty realistic. I also recommend Soup Recipes From Filipino Cooking: How To Cook Filipino Food For Soup Lovers: Fun Recipes For Organic Eating as the downside to this book here is there aren't the organic options that I like since i tend to like to eat healthy. Other then that this is a good book, informative, cozy and to the point.
