While you may find an occasional Philippine cookbook among the exotica at your local bookstore, your best bet is the Filipiniana book shops which deal exclusive in material from and/or about the homeland. Some of the best of these are to be found on the west coast and are happy to send out catalogues and provide mail-order service. They include:

Sulu Arts and Books
465 Sixth Street
San Francisco, California 94103-4794
(415) 777-2451

Sulu carries approximately 15 cookbooks or books about food. Most of these relate to the Philippines, but Sulu's scope includes other South-East Asian countries as well. Related interests covered include health and the natural sciences. Unfortunately their catalogue does not list prices so you will have to call in and ask.

Philippine Expressions
2114 Trudie Drive
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275-2006
tel (310) 514-9139
fax (310) 514-3485

Philippine Expressions carries 53 books and one video on cooking, most of it Philippine, although some relate to broader South-East Asia. Most of these are cookbooks, though some deal with foodways and folkways. Linda Maria Nietes, owner, includes detailed descriptions of each book in her 14-page culinary culture catalogue and some of them sound fascinating. Linda is informed enough about every book she carries that if you have questions, she can help you decide what might be right for you. Prices are included.
