Under Coconut SkiesSmith Street Books
Discover the food of the Philippines’ 7000 tropical islands.
Colourful and vibrant, Filipino food is the culmination of naturally salty, sour and sweet ingredients from the land, along with the heart-warming Filipino spirit of generosity and community, where food is always shared and imbued with meaning.
In this vivid cookbook, Yasmin Newman invites you into her kitchen and into the homes of friends and locals, sharing traditional dishes, and vegetarian and modern interpretations on the classics. From sizzling wild mushroom sisig, golden turmeric and cassia bark rice from the Muslim south and pork belly adobo to glistening candied kalamansi cake, Filipino food celebrates and satisfies all the senses. With easy recipes for home cooks and chapters divided into feasts, there’s inspiration for all occasions.
Yasmin’s journey takes her through the lush isles of the Philippines, where she captures the age-old traditions, rich folklore and enchanting personal stories of the country. Under Coconut Skies is the follow-up to Yasmin’s first beloved cookbook on Filipino food, 7000 Islands.
