Pre-ordered this bad boy and it arrived pretty quickly. I gave it to my older sister as a gift. She loves it, I love it, her husband loves it. We are Filipino and damn man this cookbook is fire! My brother in law is so stoked for it since he loves Filipino food! He's Hmong and hadn't tried Filipino food until his relationship with my sister but he absolutely loves it. He's quite handy too so we'll be building a roasting pit to make some lechon in the backyard soon! Which Calvin so graciously provides directions on how to do that. Calvin's insights and recipes are great and I really found the book relatable. It was more than I expected! --Kalvin

I just got my copy and initially thumbing thru it, I’m really excited to try out these recipes! The pictures of the dishes to the corresponding recipes look scurrilous. growing up in SoCal, my grandma and mom would make the various dishes included in this book, but they never wrote them down! However, It appears all of my favorite filipino recipes and included in this book. I can’t wait to try them and test them out with my family at our next gathering. I predict they will be impressed. --Violist440 

Have not! Cooked anything from this cookbook of yet, but just want to bring forward the thanks of having a great binding (as I know so far). Lay flat (or at least ast staying on the page) without any binding conditioning! Would be nice as a spiral bound, but the binding is very good to lay flat (or staying on that page) which is a must-have for a good cookbook. --S. Johnson
