burger break + "vegan without borders" giveaway




Robin Robertson's brand new vegan cookbook "Vegan without Borders" is almost available (9/9/14)!

I am very excited for this book for a number of reasons:

1) this is an international cookbook spanning the globe.
2) the recipes are AMA-zing!
3) I tested for this book, so I KNOW it is AMA-zing!
4) the photography is just as spectacular as the recipes.
5) this is a gorgeous hardcover cookbook.

I have been a devoted recipe tester for Robin for many moons, now, and I have to say that this is one of her most ambitious endeavors. If there is anyone who can pull it off, though, it's Ms. Robertson.

I worked with her on this book just before I started working on my own cookbook (shameless plug: "Everyday Vegan Eats"), so it could have been a bit challenging, but since the recipes are typical Robin-style [EASY], I had no problem testing and living life.

Best, yet, however, this book is spectacular in both appearance and taste.

A few examples of the recipes I tested and LOVED:


Middle East: Ajvar

Greece: Greek Tomato Bruschetta


South America: Chimichurri-grilled Vegetables

Eastern Europe: Seitan Jagerschnitzel

France: Vegetable Pan Bagnat

Japan: Tofu Tonkatsu


Enough teasing! Let's get to the giveaway!

  17. This would be perfect for our house, since we serve our Friday night guests food from a different country each week, going through the alphabet. My husband is a devoted carnivore, but I and a number of our guests need a vegan option. This book would be a great addition to our resources.
