About the Author

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, The Adobo Road Cookbook author and Serious Eats contributing writer Marvin Gapultos is a first-generation Filipino American and author of the celebrated food blog, Burnt Lumpia. With his unique approach to Filipino cooking, Marvin became the first Filipino-American food blogger to truly champion and showcase Filipino cuisine to a worldwide audience. In June of 2010, Marvin decided to take his recipes to the next level and opened The Manila Machine; Los Angeles' first gourmet Filipino food truck, and the first food truck to be completely owned and operated by food bloggers. Working the competitive food truck circuit on the streets of L.A., Marvin went from self-taught home cook to cutting his teeth as a professional cook; all while introducing Filipino food to the hungry masses of Southern California. In just a short amount of time, Marvin's cooking gained both a loyal following, as well as critical acclaim. Marvin's pioneering efforts and singular passion in promoting the food of the Philippines has made him one of the country's leading voices on Filipino cuisine. As an expert in Filipino pulutan (bar food and snacks to be consumed with alcoholic beverages) it was only natural that Marvin would go on to become a Certified Cicerone; the most respected credential for beer professionals.


"This is a terrific, approachable collection of unexpected appetizers." -Publishers Weekly
"An essential guide to Filipino food and drinking culture" -Midwest Book Review
"These recipes will become a staple of your parties and celebrations for years to come." -J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, food writer and author of The Food Lab
"Gapultos succeeds in inciting hunger not only for the foods featured in his book, but also for learning more about a culinary culture influenced by Spain, China, and other global locales. This book of pulutan recipes gives food lovers something to chew upon, and pairs it with innumerable drink options. Its future as a go-to reference in this reader's kitchen is all but assured." -FlavorfulWorld.com
"High praise from Anthony Bourdain may have won pork sisig, a spicy, richly flavored sauteed dish, an international audience, but this squid version from Marvin Gapultos's Pulutan! (a Filipino word meaning finger foods and bar snacks) is a better option for weeknights." -Epicurious
"Gapultos preps home chefs well with extensive explanations of implements, pantry requirements, and beer pairing basics, while color photographs help acclimate newbies to items like prawn crackers and ube flour. Every one of the 60-plus recipes features a cook's note and information about appropriate beer pairings. Unusual techniques, such as how to squeeze calamansi juice and prep lemongrass, are illustrated with step-by-step color photographs." -Booklist
"The recipes in Pulutan are easy, accessible bites for your next party." -In the Heart Stories blog
"Self-taught home cook turned food-truck entrepreneur, Marvin Gapultos has written his second book, Pulutan! Filipino Bar Bites, Appetizers and Street Eats, this time focusing on bar snacks. Here he uses his Certified Cicerone level (Cicerone is a beer expertise certification program) to good use as he recommends beer pairings with his recipes." -Inquirer.net
