Palayok: Philippine food through time, on site, in the pot
The 'palayok', the generic Filipino term for all earthenware, is a round-bottomed, wide-mouthed native cooking pot that survives as witness to the beginning of life in the Philippines. This book by Doreen Fernandez focuses on Filipino food from its sources and beginnings through colonization and other foreign influences, to its current state and tastes. It includes short essays that elaborate on specific aspects of Filipino food.
