The Filipino-American Kitchen

Traditional Recipes, Contemporary Flavors

Selected as a semifinalist in the 2007 IACP Cookbook Awards

In The Filipino-American Kitchen, Chicago-based chef and teacher Jennifer Aranas introduces the exotic flavors of her ancestral Filipino homeland, taking readers on a gastronomic tour—from sweet and spicy to smoky and tangy—while transforming delicious native recipes into easy-to-make meals.

Even if you're an experienced Filipino cook, you will discover new favorites among this collection of over 100 recipes, which includes everything from appetizers to desserts. The recipes combine Filipino classics with New World variations, reflecting the author's Filipino-American roots. She offers innovative interpretations of native recipes such as Duck Adobo, Green Papaya and Jicama Salad, Salmon Kilaw, Lamb Casoy, and Ambrosia Shortcake, alongside traditional favorites such as Crispy Lumpia Egg Rolls, Hearty Paella, Pancit Noodles and Sweet Halo-Halo Sundaes.

The "Basics" chapter introduces the building blocks of Filipino cuisine, showing you step-by-step how to create authentic Filipino flavors. A detailed buying guide leads you through the bustling Asian market, demystifying the flavor essentials—such as coconut, palm vinegar, shrimp paste and calamansi lime—that set the food of the Philippines apart from its Asian neighbors.

With this cookbook at your side, you can share these mouthwatering Filipino dishes with your friends and family.
