Summary
7000 Islands is a beautifully illustrated, comprehensive guide to Filipino food and an insight into the culture and history of the Philippines, which will appeal to foodies and travellers alike. The book is divided into 13 chapters: Dipping Sauces (shallot and olive pickle); Breakfast (eggplant omelette); Soups (Chicken Binakol); Everyday Food (braised pork with black beans); Seafood (crab and young coconut ginataan); Party Food (stuffed beef roll with rich tomato sauce); Barbeque Food (chargrilled stuffed squid); Rice and Noodles (native paella); Vegetables and Salads (cucumber salad); Bar and Finger Food (sweet potato and prawn fritters); Snacks (sweet Filipino shortbread); Desserts (young coconut pie); Drinks (ginger tea). Filipino food can be seen through the prism of its colourful and unique history - with influences from Malaysia, Spain, China, Mexico and the US adding to the cuisine's rich texture. The food of the Philippines has a unique place in the world - and in the hearts of every Filipino. With more and more travellers exploring its shores everyday, it's the new cuisine.
