Kulinarya Now Available Nationwide

Manila, Philippines -– Asia Society and Anvil Publishing celebrated their second edition of their best-selling book Kulinarya: A Guidebook to Philippine Cuisine at their book launch in National Bookstore in Glorietta 1 last night.

As waiters served beautifully presented pica-pica, guests lined up to get their copies of the book signed by celebrated chefs Glenda Barretto (Via Mare), Jessie Sincioco (Le Souffle, Chef Jessie) and Claude Tayag (Bale Dutung), Myrna Segismundo (Restaurant 9501) and Conrad Calalang (Seasons, Intermezzo).

The chef-authors on the panel later took turns to speak about their passion for Filipino food and the Kulinarya Movement -- a movement to elevate the Filipino cuisine to global food preparation standards and international recognition. 

Asia Society executive director Suyin Lee and chair Doris Ho also gave their remarks to the crowd. They said this second edition cookbook will expand further its audience globally.

To date, there have been more than 30,000 copies of the first edition sold.

Kulinarya is now available at bookstores nationwide for PHP 795.
