My Recipe Book



While shopping at National Bookstore, I purchased a recipe book titled --- Flavors of the Philippines - A Culinary Guide to the Best of the Islands by Glenda Rosales-Barreto. It offers an introduction to Asia's most comforting and pleasuring cuisine. The earlier influences of Malay, Chinese and Spanish cooking combined with the nation's abundance of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and seafoods have resulted in an explosion of flavors and tastes that pleases the senses and satisfies the appetite. For the very first time the taste of Philippines cuisine is captured in a collection of recipies echoing the diverse gastronomic influences and cooking traditions of Philippine islands. The flavors of the Philippines leads you on a culinary journey through the different regions of the country, from the bustling city of Manila, to exotic Palawan down to diverse city of Davao as you encounter the refreshing halo-halo, a spicy kinilaw, the incomparable adobo and many, many more.The recipies in this cookbook were collected to showcase the best of the islands.
