Lots of great recipes and tips.
JDHB
It also includes some really clever themed menus for "anytime" parties, like a child's birthday party, picnic, and dessert night.
Happy Vegan
First, it makes vegan food fun and elegant.

It's hard to get non-vegan family and friends to enjoy themselves at parties. Enter Party Vegan. This book is full of recipes from quick bites to full meals, all categorized by holiday, which helps make planning much easier. Along with the recipes are tips for how to estimate the amount of food to make, ideas to make planning easier and a party punch recipe that will have guests wondering just how much bubbly is hidden amongst all the deliciousness.

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.

I believe this is my fourth Robin Robertson cookbook, and thus far, none have let me down. Party Vegan starts with a solid tips and information section to help plan your party. From there it moves into 25 different menu-themed chapters of recipes. Thus far I have trialed three of the recipes. The Mini Falafels (from the "Crowd Control" chapter in the Moroccan Station) had a spot on flavor and texture, and were perfect for a make-ahead appetizer. The Fingerling Potato Salad with Pan-Fried Arugula Pesto (from the "a Picnic Lunch" chapter) was so rich in flavor that no guest would ever miss the Parmesan. And, the Chai-Spiced Muffins (from the "Mother's Day Brunch" chapter) were perfect for an everyday treat with tea.

This is definitely a must have for entertaining any time of year.

I have found numerous ideas from this book, tried a number of them and turned out great! If your not wanting to go the way of "the old Vegan style cooking" but looking for something contemporary to modern living that non Vegans will enjoy too... this is a book for you!

....and this book makes vegan food look ravishing.

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!

With 25 themed menus for holidays and get-togethers, the recipes in this book fit any occasion, even every day cooking! As a tester for this book, I made many recipes and none of them disappointed. No matter the occasion, you'll enjoy the Southern Fried Seitan (the best I've made) and the fingerling potato salad, for example. The Spinach Potato Quesadillas are easy and outstanding. The Porcini Stuffed Seitan roast is incredible, as is the Chinese New Year's Menu. In addition, the front of the book has loads of information to make party planning a breeze. Don't miss this one!

I own several Robin Robertson cookbooks and love them all, but I think she really outdid herself with Party Vegan. First, don't let the title fool you -- this book is so much more than a "party" book. The recipes are so easy and delicious, you'll want to make them all the time. I rarely entertain, but I've been using this book for everyday cooking and it hasn't let me down. So far, I've made the Sherried Mushrooms, Curried Pakora Puffs, Fava Bean Hummus, Black Rice Salad, Baked Potato Skins, Pan-Fried Sesame Noodles and Broccoli, and Caramelized Tofu which are all fantastic recipes. I've only tried two desserts so far, the Orange-Kissed Chocolate Tiramisu and the Tres Leches Cupcakes. Both were amazing! If great recipes weren't enough, Robin also has a great section for how to entertain without stress that's filled with info and tips from her experience as a restaurant chef and caterer. I highly recommend this book.

I received this book from a non vegan friend for Christmas. It has lots of recipes that non vegans can eat and enjoy. I have to agree the set up by type of party can be confusing, but there's an index in the back by type of dish. I missed not having any pictures. However, I liked that they offered what to make to with what and alternative choices:) I also liked that not every recipe has tofu in it. Overall, it's good cookbook with yummy results. Good luck and have a great party:)!
