The first Illustrated book containing essential information on Philippine food and eating habits, Káin Ná! (which means "let's eat!") is a warm invitation to the country's communal dining table and its regional kitchens. Filipino food is the summary of Filipino history - from the indigenous food to the prehistoric era, to the influences of Asian cooking generated by trade, and the Colonial influences brought on by conquest. Yet for all its richness and diversity, little is known beyond dishes like adobo, sinigang, lechon. Káin Ná! aims to change that. The first Illustrated tome of its kind contains essential information on Philippine food and eating habits. It is divided into 12 chapters. Almusal (breakfast), Lutong Bahay (home cooking), Meryenda (afternoon delights), Lutong Kalsada (street food), Paghimagas (desserts), Pulutan (bar chow), Pang-Pista (festival food), Inumin (beverages), Sa Panaderya (bakery finds), Kakanin (rice treats), Sawsawan (dipping sauces), and a section on ingredients key to the Filipino larder.
