About the book:

We Cook Filipino presents the extraordinary food culture of the Philippines in stories and recipes from 36 culinary trailblazers--award-winning chefs, food writers and social media stars from around the globe. They share with us not just their favorite recipes for classic Philippine dishes like adobo, sinigang and ginataan, but also their personal family stories about what Filipino food and food culture mean to them.

Along with insightful stories and 51 different recipes, readers will learn many tips and techniques to balance flavor and heart-health in your dishes, such as:

  • How to use Filipino cooking methods to achieve bold flavors without adding extra sodium or sugars to your diet
  • Preparing ingredients to retain the maximum amount of heart-healthy nutrients
  • Managing your sodium intake while still using salt to heighten flavor
  • Using heart-healthy tricks--like how to increase nutrient density and reduce the caloric value of a cup of white rice
  • Quick methods brewing flavorful broths, whipping up no-fry crispy treats, and so much more!

The 51 delicious recipes in this book are not just "from the heart"--they are also "good for the heart"--specifically included for their health benefits. The result is a cookbook presenting food as something central to Filipino culture and emotional well-being as well as being nutritious and amazingly tasty!
