The Filipino-American Kitchen : Traditional Recipes, Contemporary Flavors Paperback / softback


In The Filipino-American Kitchen, Chicago-based chef and teacher Jennifer Aranas introduces the exotic flavours of her ancestral Filipino homeland, taking readers on a gastronomic tour from sweet and spicy to smoky and tangy while transforming delicious native recipes into easy-to-make meals.

Even if you're an experienced Filipino cook, you will discover new favourites among this collection of over 100 recipes, which includes everything from appetizers to desserts.

The recipes combine traditional Filipino dishes with New World variations, reflecting the author's Filipino-American roots.

She offers innovative interpretations of native recipes such as Duck Adobo, Green Papaya and Jicama Salad, Salmon Kilaw, Lamb Casoy, and Ambrosia Shortcake, alongside traditional favourites such as Crispy Lumpia Egg Rolls, Hearty Paella, Pancit Noodles and Sweet Halo-Halo Sundaes.

The Basics chapter introduces the building blocks of Filipino cuisine, showing you step-by-step how to create authentic Filipino food.

A detailed buying guide leads you through the bustling Asian market, demystifying the flavour essentials such as coconut, palm vinegar, shrimp paste and calamansi lime that set the food of the Philippines apart from its Asian neighbours.

With this Filipino cookbook at your side, you can share mouth-watering, homemade Filipino food with your friends and family.
