PFCDD - the first Philippine Food Dictionary ever printed. Best gift for all seasons.



After more than two decades of research and another 2 years of pre-publication works, the first Philippine food dictionary now sees print. Edgie Polistico's Philippine Food, Cooking, and Dining Dictionary (PFCDD) is dedicated to feature multifaceted Pinoy food culture, local tastes, and cuisine.

This book is published by Anvil Publishing in Metro Manila and was first released in September 2016 during the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay, Philippines.

We have more in this food dictionary. Learn how locals call the different colors, flavors, and tastes. You can find in the book most of the fishes commonly found in the Philippine seas and freshwater, with their local common names. As well as list of other animals (including the exotic ones), vegetables, fruits, grains, crops, spices, etc. also with their local common names. And when appropriate, with their corresponding scientific names.


The book is ideal for culinary students and teachers, food researchers, food writers and bloggers, foodies, historians, tourists, local travellers, home cook, those in food business. and those who want to learn new words of the many languages and dialects we have across the archipelago.


Because of his extensive research and the story of struggles behind the creation of this book, Edgie Polistico was featured by ANVIL Publishing in October 2016.


Incidentally, the Gourmand Awards jury has announced in December 2016 that this book won the national category on Food Writing. The book will represent the Philippines in international competition in its category against winners from other countries for the Best in the World to be announced at the annual Gourmand Awards Ceremony in Yantai, China on May 27 & 28, 2017.
