If this book has a James Beard Foundation award because of how this cookbook was presented and the recipes are timeless for the Filipinos and those who are curious and wants to go back to history in the Philippines. Some are traditional, and others have fusion of 2 recipes or cuisines. I recommend this book to anyone who is curious trying Filipino cuisine. I say that Filipino cuisine is often misrepresented because most foreigners feel alienated about how we cook our foods; however, we should have an open mind, heart and tastebuds to educate what Filipino cuisine is all about. I know everyone who has tried Filipino food will often associate with adobo, sinigang, lugaw or arroz caldo, pancit, turon and many common fare. But for those who are curious to go deeper into local Filipino foods that are found in the provinces and are cherished by many -- I think this is the book for you.
As it turns out, this book focuses more on the regions and the author's memories in those regions. there's maybe about 50 to 75 recipes in this book (out of 232 pages).
If you're looking for a solid Filipino cookbook filled with recipes, than this is not the cookbook for you. After looking at the recipes, there weren't very many recipes that I found appealing and would want to make at home. In a sense, it left me feeling like Filipino food was lackluster, which I know is NOT TRUE. Filipino food offers many outstanding dishes, but I did not find those recipes in this cookbook.
I would not have purchased this book if I could have previewed it first at my local public library.
