Synopsis: The Governor-General's Kitchen gathers interesting and little-known stories from historical sources about the Philippines' culinary culture from 1521 to 1935. Read about the circumnavigators' first picnic in the Philippines, efforts to stem hunger in a pioneering Spanish colony, carabao-horn spoons to maintain quiet during meals of nuns loyal to a vow of silence, banquets and balls of the well-heeled and the noble, devil's ice, Christ's food, seditious plottings at the King's bakery in Intramuros, mythical pygmy Dinahon who introduced kalan and palayok, early lumpia, the origins of carinderia, and much more. The Governor-General's Kitchen is a must-have for all who enjoy cooking, eating, and conversing about food.
