    A must for all veg*ns!!

    I absolutely love this book. I bought it when I went vegan at the beginning of the year, and it has been most helpful every time we had people over. We love entertaining, but none of our friends are vegan. While the recipes are always well received by all (The Smoke and Spice Jambalaya is always a hit, and has become somewhat of a staple in our home), I received special praise this past weekend. I had my husband's family over and made Sun-dried Tomato and Olive Biscotti with Artichoke Tapenade for an appetizer. My father in-law liked it so much he asked to take the leftover tapenade home and asked (several times) where he could buy more of the biscotti. It took everything for my husband and I to convince him I had made them from scratch. It made me think of those pizza commercials: "It's not delivery, it's Delissio!!" I somehow got my in-laws to think I'm a fabulous cook who slaved for hours in the kitchen for them (b/c I didn't dare say it was ridiculously quick and easy to make...) and everyone was quite pleased with their vegan meal.

    We eat with our eyes...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.

    Love this cookbook! I've had this cookbook for about a week and

    Love this cookbook! I've had this cookbook for about a week and have already made 4 recipes and all 4 came out fantastic! My hubby, a total "meat and potatoes" man has loved all 4 dishes and didn't even bother to prepare a "protein" to supplement the vegan dishes I made for our dinner. Although the cookbook is organized by menu, in the back of the book there is a list of all the dishes arranged by appetizer, soup, etc.... typical cookbook categories.

    If you're looking for great ideas for what to cook for any kind of gathering, from a special dinner for two to birthday party or other get-together, look no further than Party Vegan. Robin quite literally holds your hand and walks you through the planning and organizing and then the preparation and cooking for any event. Robin breaks it all down and then gives you the freedom to use her guided menus as much or as little as needed for your party.

    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.
