Unfortunately, the DVD did not include a recipe booklet. So I had to pause the video to write down the ingredients list then write down the cooking instructions as I watched the video, but the resulting dishes always turned out great.
I'm really hoping there is a "Best of Filipino Food Vol. 2" coming out soon!

Food Bits - History and details about the recipes on this DVD
you get a great variety of regional dishes and an intimate look at the contents of a typical filipino pantry. i love all the recipes and have noticed the small differences in how each family prepares each dish. for example, the chicken adobo dish is our national dish.. but one of my grandmas (lola) liked hers with lots of sauce/gravy (sabaw) while the other lola liked hers more dry with the sauce being reduced all the way to almost nothing but with all the flavor going into the chicken.
this is a great dvd but know that you can feel free to tweak your own creations to taste. :) have fun making these recipes your own! :)
