A beautiful compendium of food and people, the 51 delicious recipes in this book are not just “from the heart”–they are also “good for the heart”–specifically included for their health benefits. The result is a cookbook presenting food as something central to Filipino culture and emotional well-being as well as being nutritious and amazingly tasty!
