Kinilaw by Doreen Fernandez and Edilberto Alegre
With illustrations in color and black and white!
We share with you a good description of this book as mentioned in Goodreads: "This is more than just another food book. The chapters of the book encompass Kinilaw totally; its culture, its sensuality, its history, its art, its essence. This ingenious cuisine is at least a thousand years old, is done throughout the Philippines, and features fish, shellfish, crustaceans, meat, vegetables, fruits and seaweed. A delightful guide to pleasure that is distinctly Philippine." In short, Kinilaw is the journey that food takes through an acidic agent or vinegar that transforms the fresh flesh of sea creatures and seaweeds, or meat and even of fruits and vegetables, to an imagined cooked state. In Southern Philippines, they refer to vinegar as "liquid fire" and that it cooks really!
