NOTE: Vegan Fire & Spice is a complete revision of an out-of-print book of mine called Some Like It Hot, published by Penguin-Plume in 1998. As the book was vegetarian, not vegan, I’ve wanted for years to do an all-vegan spicy cookbook. In Vegan Fire & Spice, I have removed 25 of the old recipes, added 25 new ones, and thoroughly updated 175 of the originals. Vegan Fire & Spice has a new, helpful introduction and other new content.

Praise for Vegan Fire & Spice

“Want a hot, spicy trip around the world? Save the money on airfare and instead splurge on Robin Robertson’s latest work, Vegan Fire & Spice. Already a prolific cookbook author, Robertson tackles some fairly uncharted territory for us vegans, culinarily speaking. From classic dishes like Spicy Rotini Primavera to the truly exotic Vietnamese “fish” Sauce, the heat index can be adjusted to personal taste. Forget the armchair; stovetop traveling is far spicier.” (VegNews Magazine March-April, 2008)

“Whether you like your food mildly seasoned or boldly spiced, Vegan Fire & Spice will be a go-to book for great-tasting and healthful global vegan recipes.” (Neal Barnard, M.D., president of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and author of Food for Life)

“Hands down, the most flavorful vegan cookbook in print. Vegan Fire & Spice brings together authentic, wonderfully spiced dishes from every continent. If you’re tired of making vegan recipes that don’t bring the thunder, you need this cookbook in your kitchen.” (Erik Marcus, Publisher of and author of Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, & Money)

“Vegan Fire & Spice is like a trip around the world without leaving home. This culinary travel guide belongs in every kitchen and you don’t have to stand in line to clear security.” (Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull!)

“Vegan Fire & Spice has the makings of another Robin Robertson classic. Her talent for adapting international cuisines for the everyday cook, and giving them her unique stamp, shines through in every recipe in this collection.” (Nava Atlas, author of Vegan Express and The Vegetarian Family Cookbook)

“With Fire & Spice Robin Robertson presents a tour of hot and savory cooking from around the world. Robin has done the investigative work to find delicious fiery dishes from Szechuan, Thailand, India, and others, and showcases many naturally vegan dishes. She translates non-vegan dishes using vegan ingredients, yet still honoring their original flavors.” (Ken Bergeron, Vegan Certified Executive Chef; author of Professional Vegetarian Cooking)
