"As a first generation Filipina-American, this is a wonderful dvd. This dvd makes you feel like you are cooking with your Lola/Tita (Grandmother or Aunt). Cookbooks are good but it is even better to actually see the dishes being prepared. I anxiously await the next volume!"

"Best of Filipino Food, Volume 1 is a cooking instructional DVD that walks viewers through the creation of some of the most popular regional cuisine of the Philippines. From Kare-Kare to Shrimp in Coconut Milk, Pinkabet, Leche Flan, and more, Best of Filipino Food Volume 1 covers a wide array of meat and seafood dishes, as well as a few vegetable dishes, snacks, and desserts. Highly recommended for cooks of all skill and experience levels who are interested in making and sampling Philippine delicacies, and a welcome addition to public library DVD shelves. 150 minutes.

"I found the "Best of Filipino Food Vol. 1" was an excellent introduction to cooking Filipino Food. It reminded me of my favorite Filipino dishes that my Mother, Father, aunts and uncles cooked during my childhood.

Unfortunately, the DVD did not include a recipe booklet. So I had to pause the video to write down the ingredients list then write down the cooking instructions as I watched the video, but the resulting dishes always turned out great.

I'm really hoping there is a "Best of Filipino Food Vol. 2" coming out soon!

Excellent!!!!! :) a must-have dvd for all filipinos, filipin

"i was born in the philippines and grew up in the usa with my family and friends who were all phenomenal cooks... the quality of these recipes and their presentation makes this dvd one of my all time Top Ten DVDs. i love everyone's accents as well. :) this makes me feel like i'm sitting just a few feet away from them, learning just as i did when i was little. :)

you get a great variety of regional dishes and an intimate look at the contents of a typical filipino pantry. i love all the recipes and have noticed the small differences in how each family prepares each dish. for example, the chicken adobo dish is our national dish.. but one of my grandmas (lola) liked hers with lots of sauce/gravy (sabaw) while the other lola liked hers more dry with the sauce being reduced all the way to almost nothing but with all the flavor going into the chicken.

this is a great dvd but know that you can feel free to tweak your own creations to taste. :) have fun making these recipes your own! :)"
