Though the book sensibly substitutes ingredients found in the Philippines for items that are more readily available in local US stores, the compromise in taste is not noticable (if there even is). All in all, it is a short but very helpful book that taught me how to cook a few homestyle dishes that I know, miss and love. If there is any bane to it, it would be that it did not have more recipes tucked away in its small, but informative pages.

This is a perfect cookbook that beautifully brings out the beauty and delicious flavors of Filipino cuisine.
I'm actually happy that it doesn't have all the "exotic" stuff such as dinuguan, goat meat stew, paksiw etc.
It's presented in a modern, slightly Americanized way which I think is proper for filipinos and non filipinos alike.
I love the pictures! Very beautifully done.

This is a very good book for beginning filipino food eaters. But it is missing some of the more "interesting" filipino food recipes such as Dinuguan (pork blood stew) and sinigang (sourfish soup). The version of Caldereta is made with beef instead of the traditional goat meat. Other than these minor ommissions, this isn't too bad of a cook book. It has very nice color pictures and a fairly good glossary.

The Filipino dishes in this cookbook are popular and the recipes are clear to follow. The ingredients are basic. Lastly, the results are not disappointing to the palate. Beautiful photos. Highly recommended!

Nice size, spring bound, stunning mouth-watering photography and simply worded instructions of many traditional and practical Filipino dishes. The sample presentations elevate the cuisine to gourmet! The book makes cooking Filipino meals a joy, instead of an intimidating task.

The colorful pictures of Filipino dishes makes this cookbook so attractive. The recipes are easy to follow and not to difficult to prepare. If you're looking to try Filipino recipes, this would be a great cookbook to own!

All recipes are easy to cook and authentic. Pictures of dishes are great. I have a Filipino friend and she says that this one is the best out there for homestyle Filipino dishes. I had loaned my first book to a "friend" because she was always raving about the recipes and she never returned it. I had to replace it and was glad to find that Amazon carried it.
