I've hesitated to review cookbooks because I'm never sure when I've tried enough of one to warrant a review. After all, I can only comment on the bits and pieces with which I have experience. Still, the good cookbooks are worth mentioning, and this is one of the good ones.

As I flip through Vegan Fire & Spice, I'm finding that just about every recipe screams "Try me!" The recipes are organized broadly into large swaths of the globe (The Americas, Mediterranean Europe, The Middle East and Afri

Bought this book after checking it out from the library several times. I have tried several of the recipes and they have been winners. The Mr. and I love spicy foods, so this one is frequently turned to.

Updated review: I really love how this book incorporates recipes from many different cuisines. I find that 2 years after picking this book up, I am still finding little gems inside. I use the Thai and Chinese sections all the time - at least once a week - and I am also trying some African recipe

Recommends it for: those who like spicy foods and easy recipes, especially vegans and vegetarians
This was a wonderful birthday gift from someone who knows me well: I’m vegan and I’m addicted to hot & spicy foods. I have this author’s book [Some Like It Hot:], which is a vegetarian, not vegan, book. This book is the updated and veganized version of this earlier book.

This book has international cuisine recipes. The contents are divided up by area: The Americas, Mediterranean Europe, The Middle East and Africa, India, and Asia. There are also more specific regions/countries within these ar

I made my first meal from this cookbook last night. During the cooking process, I had serious doubts as to the flavorful-ness of the recipe, but the finished result was not only delicious but surprisingly so!

The recipes was for "Spicy Bean and Spinach Burritos" on page 26. The ingredients were incredibly simple with very few spices at all. I DID make substitutions. Instead of using 10oz. of frozen spinach I used a 6oz. bag of fresh which ultimately resulted in there being no leftovers. The "four

Another great cookbook from Robin Robinson. This book has a recipes from the Carribean, India, Italy, Spain, Thailand, and back to China...there is something for everyone-or anyone willing to challenge their tastebuds with a few chiles and spices. I love the way the book is arranged. It goes from country to country and gives a historical context and background to the food. I've tried about 8 dishes so far, and they are easy to prepare and deliciously spicy.

This book was just full of great recipes. I grabbed a stack of global recipes vegan/vegetarian cookbooks from the library and this was by far the best one. Even if you don't like your food hot the recipes are easy to customize, and the beginning of the book gives you a lot of information on what peppers are hottest, and other things you need to know to get things right for your taste buds. I can't say enough nice things about it :)

Tofu kaprao: This Thai tofu-basil dish was quick enough for a weeknight and delicious to boot! I'm definitely making it again.

Seitan fajitas with poblano chiles: Wooo! Our peppers were spicy. But that didn't stop Jeff, kiddo, and me from gobbling this up. A perfect weeknight meal paired with a black bean salad. Two thumbs up!

I wanted to copy so many of the delicious sounding recipes in this book that I gave up and have decided to buy it.

One of my favorite cookbooks. I turn to it all the time even though I'm not exactly vegan anymore (I know, I know... Wish I was).
