COCINA SULIPEÑA is a cookbook that partakes of family history and social history. It presents hometown cooking from Sulipan in Pampanga, a town no longer on the maps, its memory hovering between Calumpit, Bulacan, and Apalit, Pampanga.

Some dishes come from Kapampangan daily fare, like Suam a Tulya; others like Lengua Legislativa come from festive tables, especially those of the legendary Capitan Joaquin Arnedo Cruz, his wife Capitana Maria Sioco de Tanjutco/Arnedo, and their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, of whom the author is one.

The book is also social history, since the Introduction by Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC, and the author’s comments on each section and recipe present the social, economic, and culinary contexts of Sulipan cuisine. Since the recipes have been kitchen-tested by professionals, it is also a primarily, a real working, workable cookbook.
