The book is divided into 13 chapters: Dipping Sauces (shallot and olive pickle); Breakfast (eggplant omelette); Soups (Chicken Binakol); Everyday Food (braised pork with black beans); Seafood (crab and young coconut ginataan); Party Food (stuffed beef roll with rich tomato sauce); Barbeque Food (chargrilled stuffed squid); Rice and Noodles (native paella); Vegetables and Salads (cucumber salad); Bar and Finger Food (sweet potato and prawn fritters); Snacks (sweet Filipino shortbread); Desserts (young coconut pie); Drinks (ginger tea). Filipino food can be seen through the prism of its colourful and unique history - with influences from Malaysia, Spain, China, Mexico and the US adding to the cuisine's rich texture. The food of the Philippines has a unique place in the world - and in the hearts of every Filipino. With more an more travellers exploring its shores everyday, it's THE new cuisine.

"Make space on your shelf for "7000 Islands", a beautifully styled and photographed tome dedicated to the depth and diversity of Filipino cuisine... Penned by Yasmin Newman and filled with travel photos she took herself, "7000 Islands" is a way to rediscover the cuisine we have the fortune of enjoying every day." -"ELLE Decor, " Philippines""7000 Islands" is a beautifully illustrated, comprehensive guide to Filipino food and an insight into the culture and history of the Philippines, which will appeal to foodies and travellers alike." -Books Kinokuniya."..a lush collection of Filipino food, life and culture. With stunning photos (she took them herself!) of not just native dishes but people and places that lend a richness to the recipes within, the book offers juicy cultural tidbits like the tradition of "pasalubong" (small souvenirs you bring home for friends and family), local fables and lore, and a bit of historical context for a full, well-rounded picture of Filipino life and cuisine. Our favorite part of the book is her take on local dining culture..." -"Audrey Magazine"
