We are working on our newest book entitled Chamoru Cuisine: A Mariånas Cultural Legacy.
Our newest book is more than a typical cookbook. Our book offers stories of Chamoru culture depicting the islands of Guam and the Northern Marianas. We share our people's culinary practices and offer delicious Chamoru recipes that we've crafted. You will have the recipes necessary to make a variety of Chamoru culinary favorites for your family, or for your special guests at your next fiesta-styled gathering.
The book includes:
- Maps of Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan
- Narratives of Chamoru culture
- Illustrations of Chamoru culinary practices
- Colorful photos of the Marianas Islands
- 115 Chamoru and island-inspired recipes that are tweaked to offer our way of preparing them
- Helpful index
- Glossary of Chamoru and English cooking terms
- Mariånas Harvesting Calendars
- and much more
Each recipe in this cookbook was prepared in Gerard's test kitchen, experimenting with optimal ingredients, and adjusting the profile for more thoughtful selection of ingredients. These tests were done in keeping with the taste one would expect from Chamorro cooking.
