About the author:
Chef Rolando Laudico and his cuisine is this book’s subject matter. He talks candidly about “Pinoy Street Food” as the “great social equalizer”, savoring it for all of that sense of “liberation and defiance”. Each chapter starting from the “Pica Pica” (starters) and the “Laman Lupa” (meats) and the 5 more chapters in between , have that same element of a revolutionary genius that will propel the “Filipino cuisine to be recognized , appreciated , and be accessible to all”.
