Over the years, she has fine-tuned her vegan diet into an eclectic and healthful cooking style which she thinks of as a creative adventure with an emphasis on the vibrant flavors of global cuisines and fresh ingredients. In addition to writing cookbooks, Robin writes 'The Global Vegan' column for VegNews Magazine.

If you are interested in recipes to bring along to potlucks, or for Thanksgiving & Christmas parties, or if you are planning on throwing a party yourself and want to be a party animal without serving any at your party, do yourself a favor and add this book to your collection.
This is definitely a must have for entertaining any time of year.
The party menus in the book guide you through every party scenario from the elegant sit-down dinner to the relaxed buffet and Robin provides you with information for just about any happenstance. Does one of your guests have an allergy? Check out the "Recipe swaps" for the planned menu. Afraid you might goof something up? Make sure to stock your "Impromptu Party Pantry" on page 23 and read up on "Last Minute Rescues". Recipes are also clearly marked with M for Make ahead and Q for quick and easy so you can plan accordingly. The recipes don't need to wait for a party either -- they're great for weeknight dinners, or anytime.
Party Vegan is based on the idea that the best party is where you are relaxed and the guests enjoy themselves. With that philosophy and Party Vegan at your side you can't go wrong.
I love this book for so many reasons.
First, it makes vegan food fun and elegant. The book's design is crisp, the style is new -- it really destroys the old fashioned associations people have with vegan food. Teriyaki shiitake sticks -- so good! Pistachio-dusted chocolate-raspberry truffles -- this is the kind of thing I can bring to a pot luck and surprise all the non-vegans with. Yes, it is possible to have divine, indulgent meals without harming cows, pigs or chickens.
Second, the recipes have grace -- that is, they are easy to make, the ingredients are not obscure, but they end up looking beautiful and tasting delicious. The author uses her imagination to come up with new approaches to food that just work.
Third, the book has personality. This isn't just a cookbook, it's a how-to book on being the type of person who has a heart AND can pull of a classy party. For example, there's a section called "No Forks Allowed" that explains how the way that food is presented can affect the dynamic of a party. Foods that can be dipped, nibbled, stacked, wrapped and skewered are more conducive to mingling.
The recipes are really interesting, like the Gingered "crab" cups with wasabi cream cheese -- it really takes vegan food to a more sophisticated level.
Another thing I like about it is the convenient labeling of which recipes can be made ahead of time and which ones are quick and easy. These labels let me choose if I want to spend more time making something complex to test my culinary boundaries, or if I want to go for something graceful and easy.
It's just a great cookbook!
