Calling all recipe testers!

I know it’s taken me long enough, but at last I’m ready to take on a new crop of testers for my international cookbook stated for Fall 2012!

This will be a full service cookbook, from soups to salads to entrees and a few desserts too. There will be roughly 125-150 recipes to test with possibly more down the line.

Working title: Vegan Eats World

Testing will start as soon as I get enough testers, but really a if you’re reading this and it’s before January 2012 and you want to test, chances are I could still use your whisk, spatula, chef’s knife or whatever.

Recipes will be posted in a secret portion of this blog, accesible only via a password. Next week I’ll send out an email with the details of how to access the recipes. If you haven’t heard back from me in two weeks it’s only because I have enough testers for now, but I’ll keep you on standby should I need more testers later on.

Once again, thanks a billion for your help! Testers like you make great vegan cookbooks a reality!

A few things you may want to know:

-I’ll probably cap testers around 25-30, but spots will open up as testing progresses, so feel free to contact me down to road and ask if you’re interested in testing in case a spot opens up.

-Testers can test as many or few recipes as they like. Ideally I’d like about 30 recipes minimum done per tester, but ultimately it’s all about what you can or can’t do, but keep in mind this will be spread out over several months too.

-Recipes will require access to a natural foods store and ethnic markets. You may end up doing more food shopping that you’re used to, so if you’re a poor student, really strapped for cash or can’t order the occasional grocery item online this may not be the project for you.

-You ideally should have access to a kitchen with some of the basics such as a chef’s knife, assorted pans and bowls, range top and oven, food processor to name a few. And a computer, but you probably have that covered if you’re reading this now.

-Everyone who stays in touch to the the end of testing will get a thank you in the book! Dedicated testers will be eligible for a free autograph copy of the book too.

Please post any questions below if you have them!
If you want to be a recipe tester, email me at with [Recipe Testing] in the subject line, thankyouverymucho!

I sent an email via verizon, but I think it would be better through my gmail account as noted above.

Hey there folks!

I’ve been overwhelmed with all of the lovely offers to help! As of right now I have oodles of testers, more than enough for the book.

Thanks so much for your help! I’ll be notifying selected testers next week of the next step. If you don’t get selected now, I’ll keep you on standby if I should need additional testers. Again, thanks a million!

I’m soooo looking forward to your new book! I’m counting the days :)
I’ve been cooking your recipes of Viva Vegan! for months. It’s the best latin cookbook I know!!!! Everything was super tasty and really easy to make thanks to your descriptions, so far. I love to read the introductions. I love everything about this book!
My boyfriend isn’t vegan, but he loves the food aswell!
Greetings from Switzerland!
