With a distinct lack of Filipino restaurants to be found, the road to great Filipino food begins and ends at home. In his debut cookbook, Marvin demonstrates that Filipino cuisine can be prepared in any kitchen—from Manila to Los Angeles and everywhere in-between. Marvin interprets traditional Filipino flavors with equal parts kitchen savvy and street smarts—providing easy-to-follow, tried-and-true recipes that serve as a guide to the pleasures of Filipino cooking. The nearly 100 recipes in these pages pave a culinary road trip that transports home cooks to the roadside food stalls, bars and home kitchens of the Philippines, to the hungry streets of L.A., and even into the kitchens of Marvin's grandmother, mother and aunties. A highly personal take on traditional Filipino cooking, The Adobo Road Cookbook boasts a tantalizing mix of native Filipino flavors, as well as influences from Spain, Mexico, China, and the U.S. From chapters featuring surefire entertaining foods like Filipino bar food, street food and cocktails to a complete section of adobo recipes, both traditional and with a twist, the recipes found in The Adobo Road Cookbook express Marvin's unique approach to cooking. All of his recipes emphasize their authentic Filipino roots, taking advantage of traditional island flavors for which the Philippines is rightly renowned. Recipes include: Slow-Braised Pork Belly and Pineapple Adobo Spicy Sizzling Pork (Sisig) Salmon and Miso Sour Soup (Sinigang) Chili Crab Spring Rolls (Lumpia) Coconut Milk Risotto with Kabocha Squash and Long Beans Chicken Adobo Pot Pies Sweet Corn and Coconut Milk Panna Cotta Spicy Sizzling Pork Gin Fizz Tropical Banana-Nut Spring Rolls

    I wasn't aware of his blog or his food truck before reading this, I just wanted another Filipino cookbook. There are a lot of flavors I want to explore, and never really thought about Filipino desserts. It's nice to read about what dishes are a success and if there's a change from the "traditional" cut of meat to one that's easier to find or just less intimidating. I am so drawn to his story in the Introduction about becoming interested in what his parents and grandparents ate, wanting to share I wasn't aware of his blog or his food truck before reading this, I just wanted another Filipino cookbook.

I am so drawn to his story in the Introduction about becoming interested in what his parents and grandparents ate, wanting to share his personal experiences, and as stated in the last paragraph, knowing that this is just a starting point.

    A marvelous read and recipes just begging to be tried and enjoyed. I wonder if the author had someone help him with the text because who would have ever thought a Food Truck guy could write as well? Apparently, he has varied talents. I only wish I wasn't so far from his route and neighborhood - I'd be in line waiting to order!

    I joined a culture club. This month is filipino. I made pineapple sweet and sour sauce for chicken, and banana ketchup. ( I was amazed how good it was.) This made for good reading.

    I had to call my sister when I got this cookbook as she spent a couple of years in the Philippines and fell in love with their food. She still cooks their food often even though it's been years since she lived there, and many of the recipes in this book are ones she makes often. The Green Beans With Shallots and Garlic as well as the Fast and Simple Garlic Fried Rice are delicious (and very authentic, according to her!). I first had adobo when she made it for us on a visit home and, while I woul I had to call my sister when I got this cookbook as she spent a couple of years in the Philippines and fell in love with their food. She still cooks their food often even though it's been years since she lived there, and many of the recipes in this book are ones she makes often. The Green Beans With Shallots and Garlic as well as the Fast and Simple Garlic Fried Rice are delicious (and very authentic, according to her!). I first had adobo when she made it for us on a visit home and, while I wouldn't want a steady diet of it, these are great recipes for times I want that flavor. I do love Lumpia and Spring Rolls, so I'm delighted to find the recipes here. The Leche Flan is definitely on my "to make" list as well. Most of the recipes here are fairly simple to make, but some of the ingredients will be very hard to find unless you live in an area with a large Filipino population that has specialized stores that carry products such as cassava, fresh pig's ears, fresh taro root and so on. There is a listing in the back of the book for a few online sources, but this can get pricey. That dropped my rating a bit. Other than that, this is a great book for lovers of Filipino food or food explorers looking to try something new. I received a copy of this book from Tuttle Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    It looks good, but there's a lot of ingredients that I can't easily find.
