As a food blogger-turned-gourmet food trucker, Marvin interprets traditional Filipino flavors with equal parts kitchen savvy and street smarts--providing easy-to-follow, tried and true recipes that serve as a guide to the pleasures of Filipino cooking. The nearly 100 recipes in these pages pave a culinary road trip that transports home cooks to the roadside food stalls, bars and home kitchens of the Philippines, to the hungry streets of L.A., and even into the sage kitchen's of Marvin's own grandmother, mother and aunties.??

A highly personal take on traditional Filipino cooking, The Adobo Road Cookbook boasts a tantalizing mix of native Filipino flavors, as well as influences from Spain, Mexico, China, and the U.S. From chapters featuring surefire entertaining foods like Filipino bar food, street food and cocktails, to a complete section of adobo recipes--both traditional and with a twist--the recipes found in The Adobo Road Cookbook express Marvin's unique approach to cooking. All of his recipes emphasize their authentic Filipino roots, taking advantage of traditional island flavors for which the Philippines is rightly renowned.
