So, I purchased this book. After I received it, I brought it over to my mom's house to get her opinion and she was stoked on how authentic the recipes were. So much so, that she ended up announcing that she was keeping the book and I could buy another one.
The recipes are good but since most Filipino families have a distinct way of making dishes you may have to adjust them to suit your taste and preference.
The book reveals a cuisine that is the amalgamation of history and geography; it features a multipage discussion on how Filipino cuisine can be subdivided into regional specialties, each with its own historical influences; it provides a grouping of dishes by genre (how many Filipino cookbooks describe the various meat and seafood ginataan variations while smartly leaving the dessert ginataan for later?); it compares and contrasts dishes with similar ones from other parts of the Philippines. From reading the book, one gets a glimpse of just how diverse Filipino cooking really is, each major region in the archipelago of 7100 islands, large and small, developing a unique taste that warrants its own recipe book.
Accurate/appropriate English translations for many of the recipe names help make the recipes seem less exotic and unapproachable while the clear instructions guide the novice through even some of the more intricate dishes.
