Fruits of the Philippines
This classic book by Filipino food historian Doreen Fernandez identifies, in layman's definition, the fruits identified as 'bungang kahoy', 'bunga' or 'prutas' in the Philippines. Generally edible without cooking and often used as dessert or squeezed into juice or cooked into sweets, each fruit is described through its taste, the way it is eaten, and how it figures in culture (in folklore, in belief; its medicinal uses, if any). Includes full color pictures and drawings.
