Home » Wishlist: Filipino Cookbooks!
I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but there are many Filipino dishes that I don’t know how to make. And I’m Filipino! I guess I’ve always had parents and relatives and family friends that have cooked for me, so I never really made Filipino food for myself when I was growing up. (Thanks, Mom, Dad, Titas, and Titos!) But now I’m excited to start learning how to cook the food I grew up eating. And these Filipino cookbooks will help.
Sure, I know the basics, like pancit, lumpia (I made the ones pictured above), sinigang, adobo, and all the “silog” dishes. But I want to get really good at lechon, embutido, palabok, kare-kare, Filipino desserts, and more.
Below is a wishlist of Filipino cookbooks that I’m hoping to acquire over time. If you have any of these, let me know! I’d be curious to get your reviews on them. And if there are books I’m missing, drop me a line, and I’ll add them to this list.
I’m looking forward to learning and cooking these recipes. So stay tuned for future blog posts featuring meals inspired by these Filipino cookbooks! 👩🏻🍳🇵🇭
