Milkier Pigs & Violet Gold: Philippine Food Stories
- About the Author
Recipes tell stories. They make excellent carriages for folklore and history and as they make their way from cook to cook, from generation to generation, they evolve to suit new tastes and times. To explore the stories behind recipes is to attempt to understand their provenances. Bryan Koh set out to do just that, and to more fully understand the culinary culinary tapestry of one of the most underrated and least explore cuisines of Southeast Asia.
Originally published in 2014 as Milk Pigs & Violet Gold, this revised and expanded edition is equally lavish with photographs and more recipes from the different regions of the Philippines, including Batanes, Cavite, pagudpud, South Cotabato, Samar and the predominantly Muslim Zamboanga.
