Being the oldest city in the Philippines, dating back to the time when the country was first discovered by Ferdinand Magellan, Cebu City has established a heritage that influenced the country’s culture and traditions. One of which is the Filipino’s love for food. Louella’s interest in cooking and in our cultural heritage eventually resulted in a love letter to Cebu, in the form of her part history, part cookbook. " This Book is a valuable guide to the cooking and social history of a historic region.
