5.0 out of 5 stars The Food of the Philippines
This book help me a lot and it's very encouraging to see a picture of what you'll be cooking so you know how it would look like. It has a substitute ingredients too, if you can't find some oriental ingredients. I recommend this to people who love to cook Asian foods. The best so far with the Filipino recipe books that I've used.

2.0 out of 5 stars pretty pictures...
I am always looking for good Filipino cookbooks. I was delighted to find this while I was browsing until...I looked through the book. It has pretty pictures, it definitely made me think of the Philippines. But I was hoping for a more substantial cookbook, one with more recipes, one I can actually use as a cookbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coffee Table Cookbook, January 19, 2005

This review is from: Food of the Philippines (Food of the World Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
This book has great food photography, but as another reviewer stated it is mostly a "coffee table" book. My wife is a Filipina, and she says that Alejandro has taken most of his recipes from his older books and "recycled" them into this one. If you want "hands-on" Philippine recipes, this may not be what you are looking for. It is a great book if you only collect cookbooks but don't use them much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply delicious, January 10, 2003
This review is from: Food of the Philippines (Food of the World Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
A very good book that not only provides a history on Philippine cuisine, but a surprisingly comprehensive collection of favorite Filipino dishes that is simple to follow.
If you are looking for a book about Filipino dishes, you won't go wrong with this one.
