Recipe Testers Wanted

I’m excited to announce that I recently signed on to do a new vegan slow-cooker cookbook. It will contain over 150 brand new recipes along with about 50 revised/updated recipes from my previous slow-cooker book, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker that I wrote back in 2003.

A new cookbook means that I will need about a dozen dedicated and enthusiastic recipe testers who would like to volunteer their time and talents to test recipes. Here’s the criteria to be a recipe tester for this book. You should:

• own one or more slow cookers or “crock pots” (please list quart size and brand)
• enjoy cooking with a variety of vegan ingredients
• be detail-oriented and good at following recipes (previous testing experience a plus)
• agree to provide a critique of each recipe tested (ability to provide photos of tested recipes a plus)
• be willing to test 15 to 20 recipes between August 1 and November 1

If this sounds like you, and you’d like to help me out by testing recipes, please e-mail me at robin@globalvegankitchen.com and tell me why you’d make a great recipe tester. Be sure to include the brand and quart size of your slow cooker(s) and mention if you’ve tested recipes before, as well as if you can take photos of the recipes you test.

If you are chosen to be a tester, I’ll e-mail you with the news! I know there are lots of great testers out there, so let me hear from you no later than July 6th, so I have time to go through all the e-mails — I know it will be a tough decision.

In return for their help, those who test more than 15 recipes will receive a copy of the book, and I’ll also thank every recipe tester on the Acknowledgments page. So, if you enjoy using a slow cooker and want to be considered to help with recipe testing, please let me know.

Call for Testers Ends Tonight

It’s been raining recipe testers! Honestly, I am so overwhelmed (as well as happy, thrilled, amazed, and astonished) at the tremendous response to my request for recipe testers. I have been literally inundated with e-mails from scores of very talented and enthusiastic people. Did I mention that I’m overwhelmed? I wish I could choose all of you, but then you’d all only need to test like a single recipe!

I had originally thought it would take a week to accumulate enough stellar testers, but I literally have received more volunteers than I can handle in just two days. So, I’m setting the cut-off date for the call for recipe testers to end tonight at midnight.

To everyone who has expressed interest in testing recipes: It’s going to take me a few days to sort through all the e-mails and make the difficult decision of who to choose, but I’ll be in touch before the end of next week with those who made the list.

And to everyone else, I want to express my gratitude for your interest in helping me, your kind words for my work, and most of all for your enthusiasm for cooking vegan! I’m sure you’d all do a great job testing and I only wish I didn’t have to keep the recipe testers to a manageable number because I know I’d enjoy working with you all.

Thanks so much for your support!

Recipe Testers Needed

Special Announcement:  I’m busily working on another cookbook (yes, another one!). The recipes will soon be ready for testing, so I’m looking for a few dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who would enjoy testing some of the recipes.

Here’s the criteria I’m looking for in a recipe tester. You should:
• enjoy cooking with a variety of vegan ingredients
• be detail-oriented and good at following recipes. (previous testing experience a plus)
• agree to provide a critique of each recipe tested. (ability to provide photos of tested recipes a plus)
• be willing to test at least 15 recipes between now and January 31st.

If this sounds like you and you’d like to help me out with some recipe testing, please send me an e-mail and tell me why you’d make a good tester.

I know there are lots of great testers out there, so let me hear from you no later than October 27th so I have time to make what I’m sure will be a very tough decision in choosing just a few wonderful cooks to help with the testing.

Call for Recipe Testers

I’m happy to report that I’m doing the final testing for my next book, 1,000 Vegan Recipes and also working on the one that follows. With all that testing to do, I’m hoping to recruit 4 or 5 new recipe testers.

All I can promise as a thank you is your name in the acknowledgments, so if you love to cook (and eat!) vegan food and would like to help, you would need to be detail-oriented and able to articulate recipe critiques and suggestions.

If you can commit to testing 3 to 4 recipes a week between now and February 1st, please send me an e-mail expressing your interest. Experience in recipe testing is a definite plus, but not required. Recipe testing begins next week, so let me hear from you soon!
