Recipe Testers Needed

Recipe Testing 1

UPDATE 9/25/15: Due to an overwhelming number of responses, so the call for Recipe Testers is now closed. Thank you to all who emailed me.  I will be in touch with those who are chosen very soon!

With my next cookbook, Cook the Pantry, due to hit the shelves in a few weeks, it should come as no surprise that I’m already working on a new cookbook!  In fact, the recipes will soon be ready for testing, so I’m looking for a few good recipe testers.

I’m going to need about 10 dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who would enjoy testing some of the recipes over the next few months. If you’re interested, here are a few questions to help you decide if it’s right for you:

  • Do you enjoy cooking and cook often?
  • Do you like to cook with a variety of plant-based ingredients (including some soy, wheat, nuts, and/or oil)?
  • Are you detail-oriented and good at following recipes?
  • Have you had previous experience testing recipes?
  • Are you willing to provide a critique and photo of each recipe tested?
  • Are you able to test 12 to 15 recipes between October 6th and January 11th?

If you’ve answered “YES” to the above questions and want to help me out with some recipe testing, let me hear from you! Send me an e-mail and tell me why you’d make a good recipe tester. Be sure mention if you’ve tested recipes before and if you can take photos of the recipes you test.

I know there are lots of great recipe testers out there, so let me hear from you no later than Monday, September 28th. I’m sure it will be a tough decision to choose among so many wonderful cooks. If you’re chosen to be a recipe tester, I’ll e-mail you with the news on or before October 1st!

FYI…The book includes recipes for plant-based dairy and meat alternatives used to make everything from appetizers to desserts. Several of the recipes feature multiple components. In return for their help, recipe testers who test all their assigned recipes will receive a copy of the new book and a “thank you” on the Acknowledgments page.

I look forward to hearing from you! You can email via the “Contact Robin” page on this website — just click “Contact Me.”

UPDATE 9/24/15: The call for recipe testers is now closed.  Thank you!!

    I have only been vegan for a couple of months, but am loving it and feeling better than I have in years. I would LOVE to test recipes for you!

    I would love to have the challenge to be a recipe tester…I’m just learning to become a good cook and need something to help me along the way…I may not be experienced but I would be able to provide feedback as a cook in training.

    I looove to cook, teach a little myself, and would be honored to test anything you have created 🙂

    I love the art of cooking and putting my love into the meals I prepare. It’s about taking a recipe and working from beginning to the ending product and seeing the pleasure people have from something that I created. Although I have never been an official taster, I would be honored to be chosen and you have my commitment that I will follow your instructions in the recipes and the process you require. I have tried several of your recipes and enjoy your cookbooks.

    I LOVE cooking and have been plant based the last 4 years. I’m always trying new recipes. One of my favorite things is collecting cookbooks and going into Asian, Mediterranean, Hispanic etc grocers and finding new herbs, spices, fruits and veggies to try.
    Have had fun over the years getting together with friends and teaching each other different cultural recipes too. I’m reliable, and very motivated. Just moved to new city and have time on my hands and new friends to invite over for supper! Yes to all the above!

      Always use juniper berries, a dash of hot sauce and bay leaves in a pig brine. Molasses or brown sugar, but plenty of salt. Beer or ginger beer as the liquid. At least 6 brining hours in the fridge. Dry rubs have too many variations, depending on your spice source.These rules are immutable, whether the cut is pork or “long pi2B&#8g21;.ut if you’re going to smoke, I like hickory and applewood.

    I would really love to test some recipes for you. I’ve never been a tester before, but I love to cook and am very familiar with your cookbooks. I own about 40 vegan cookbooks and rarely cook the same thing twice because I love trying new recipes. I’ve been cooking vegan for about 5 years now.
