"To truly appreciate and understand Filipino dishes, you have to understand the evolution of the spices, the nuances of the flavor profiles, the land from which these dishes were birthed. That's what this book provides. This is not just a book of recipes; this is a book about our story." --Pati Navalta Poblete, Editor-in-Chief, San Francisco Magazine

No cuisine and appliance are better suited for one another than Filipino food and the Instant Pot.

From classic dinner staples like the traditionally sour Sinigang na Baboy (pork tamarind soup) to sweet treats like Putong Puti (steamed rice cake), the rich flavors of Filipino food are typically unlocked through a long braise or boil, a delicate steam, or some other treatment by moist heat. Fortunately, this is exactly what the Instant Pot does best.

The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook is written by six home cooks who set out to explore their Filipino heritage and intimate family histories, one dish at a time. The result is a collection of over 75 heartfelt Filipino recipes, all carefully translated for preparation in today’s most essential piece of kitchenware, the Instant Pot. Just as Filipino food is now a mainstay in the consciousness of foodies from around the world, The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook is an absolute must-have for every modern home cook. It is written with humor and heart, and lined with beautifully styled photography that will trigger a warm sense of nostalgia.

Praised by the Culinary Director of the Filipino Food Movement, the President Emeritus of the Filipino American National Historical Society, and chefs from around the world, The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook will help any home cook step into a kitchen and create great Filipino food for any setting, without breaking the bank… or the clock. Whether you’re cooking for a raucous affair featuring the tableside chatter of an entire extended family or a simple, quiet comfort-meal under your favorite blanket on the couch, The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook will have you covered.

About the Author

Having been introduced to the Instant Pot by her mother, Tisha Gonda Domingo quickly developed her expertise cooking with the electric pressure cooker through practice with traditional Filipino ingredients, methods, and dishes. Today, she is the co-founder and co-administrator of the Filipino Instant Pot Community, the largest and most active Filipino IP congregation on the web. Through her first published work, The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook, Tisha offers personal stories and family recipes that bring her love for food, community, and Filipino culture together.

Outside of her work as an author and home cook, Tisha works in publicity for a major television studio. She currently lives in Orange County, California, with her husband, Jorell, and two children.

Jeannie E. Celestial was born on Guam and raised by Filipino parents and grandparents who were skilled farmers. It was they who helped develop her cooking instincts early on, instilling in her a deep understanding of and respect for traditional Filipino ingredients.

In addition to her work with food, Jeannie is a practicing psychologist who is committed to holistic wellness and fostering healthy Filipinx (Filipino/a/x) communities. The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook brings her passions together, allowing her to promote mental health through food-helping to break down colonial mentality by proudly sharing the recipes, stories, and cultural practices of her motherland, the Philippines.

Jeannie earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology at the University of California at Berkeley, a Master of Social Work Degree at San Francisco State University, and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Clinical Psychology at Palo Alto University. She currently works in Vallejo, California.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Romeo Roque-Nido's cooking was influenced early on by a diversity of cultures before being broadened further during his time as a world-traveling student in the California Maritime Academy. While his culinary influences are varied (he loves Italian food!), his truest passion is the cuisine of his motherland, the Philippines. Through The Filipino Instant Pot Cookbook, Romeo hopes to preserve the rich culinary heritage of the Philippines, by using modern appliances to make it more accessible to even the busiest of families.

Romeo earned his engineering degree from California Maritime Academy and MBA from St. Mary's College of California. Today he lives in Vallejo, California with his wife and two children.
