The 100 recipes presented in this book are based on a cuisine shaped by the influences of the many countries that have at one time or another occupied this island nation. Four hundred years of Spanish rule, more than half a century of American occupation and the continual presence of Chinese, Malay, Polynesian and Japanese influences have produced a cuisine that is varied, colorful and unique.With PACIFIC CROSSINGS, the reader will experience the adobo in a new light - cooked with different kinds of seafood and vegetables, be introduced to a soup made from purple potatoes that are just now becoming popular in the United States, and marvel at the different ways of making barbecue.Illustrated with more than 50 color photographs shot by Bill McConnell, the book will delight the eye and whet the appetite of any reader who has ever dreamed of crossing the Pacific.

The recipes in this book reflect what is being referred to as New World or fusion cooking. What this basically means is the coming together of different influences in food - classic traditional cuisine reinterpreted and infused with new vigor through new techniques and the combination of flavors and spices from East and West.From the Inside Flap:
PACIFIC CROSSINGS is a voyage of rediscovery. Lily Gamboa O'Boyle, author of Philippine Hospitality, again explores the cuisine of her childhood - a time-honored cooking style, steeped in tradition that is now experiencing a rebirth in the hands of a number of talented and well-trained Filipino chefs who are not only resurrecting regional cookery but experimenting with new and exciting dishes by combining flavors and blending Oriental with Western culinary techniques.
