Country Cooking: Philippine Regional Cuisines by Michaela Fenix“Micky’s culinary trek around our beloved Philippines had her documenting the recipes and cooking traditions of numerous towns and cities she visited. On quite a few occasions, we travelled together and delighted in authentic countryside cooking.
Country Cooking leaves an exciting trail that leads us to where Micky has set the table for us . . . to see, smell, feel, and savor the richness of the cuisine our Filipino kitchens so generously offer.”
