HIPPOCRENE BOOKS: FINE FILIPINO FOOD

Infonews from New York City
, August 25, 2003  by Karen Hulene Bartell - Created from recipes collected during the author's travels to this country at the crossroads of the Pacific Ocean and the South China and Sulu seas, Fine Filipino Food is a testament to a rich mix of cultures. Chinese traders introduced stir-frying, deep-frying, noodles, and soy products; Malaysian spice traders brought seasonings and introduced satay; Spanish colonization brought Spanish cuisine:Adobo (a pickling sauce made from olive oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, paprika, thyme, bay leaf, and salt) is a by-product of both Spanish and Chinese influence. Finally, the American influence left the legacies of speed and convenience. Fine Filipino Food features 205 recipes, a glossary of ingredients, a guide to ingredient substitutions, and an extensive resource guide, allowing all home cooks to perfectly recreate these tantalizing dishes!
