One of the most comprehensive overviews on Filipino culture, via the palate, that I have ever read! Love this book. You can savor it in chapters or devour it at one sitting, but there's lots of food for thought...
I think because this book is a collection of essays and columns written over long periods of time and published in many different places, this makes the book as a whole a little redundant. Still, it's the most comprehensive and historical body of work I have read on Filipino foodways, and that also turns a pretty good critical eye towards colonialism, gender roles/expectations, and mass media.

Recommends it for: adeventurers in culinary
The sinigangs and the adobo have several variants in the whole archipelago but it taste delicious still.
Classic read! A must for anyone who loves Philippine cuisine.
