Who says vegans can't have cheese? In this inspiring volume by best-selling vegan author Robin Robertson, you will find awesome recipes for entirely plant-based vegan cheeses and cheese sauces, used in more than 50 recipes for comforting and deeply flavorful dishes. If you were a vegetarian before you became a vegan, chances are you ate a lot of cheese, some (or maybe even a lot!) of it in macaroni and cheese. Cheese might have been hard to give up as you adopted a completely animal-free diet. Robin Robertson has the simple answer to your problem: You don't need to give up cheese and cheesy dinners! Robin shows you how to make rich, delectable vegan cheeses that start with plant milks, vegan butters, and nut butters as their base ingredients. Using these--or, if you prefer, using store-bought vegan cheese--you then can make the delicious recipes in the rest of the book. These include many variants on mac and cheese itself, from the familiar and homey, such as Mom's Classic Mac UnCheese, to the globally adventuresome, such as Indian Curry Mac or Salsa Mac and Queso. An entire chapter is devoted to veggie-loaded mac and cheese dishes, like Buffalo Cauliflower Mac, Arugula Pesto Mac UnCheese, or Smoky Mac and Peas with Mushroom Bacon. Another chapter serves up meatless mac and cheeses that use vegan meat substitutes. And, for delicious fun, there are recipes for Mac UnCheese Balls, Mac UnCheese Pizza, Mac UnCheese Waffles, and Mac UnCheese Muffins. These plant-based cheese dishes will warm your soul around the year.

Humiliation is not, of course, unique to writers. However, the world of letters does seem to offer a near-perfect micro-climate for embarrassment and shame. There is something about the conjunction of high-mindedness and low income that is inherently comic; something about the very idea of deeply private thoughts -- carefully worked and honed into art over the years -- being presented to a public audience of dubious strangers, that strays perilously close to tragedy. These seventy contributions prove it is possible to reverse Auden's dictum: that art is born out of humiliation.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018 Winner of the Goldsmiths Prize 2018 Winner of The Roehampton Poetry Prize 2018 Shortlisted for the 2019 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction 'A beautiful, vigorous and achingly melancholy hymn to the common man that is as unexpected as it is daring' John Banville, Guardian A noir narrative written with the intensity and power of poetry, The Long Take is one of the most remarkable - and unclassifiable - books of recent years. Walker is a D-Day veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder; he can't return home to rural Nova Scotia, and looks instead to the city for freedom, anonymity and repair. As he moves from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco we witness a crucial period of fracture in American history, one that also allowed film noir to flourish. The Dream had gone sour but - as those dark, classic movies made clear - the country needed outsiders to study and dramatise its new anxieties. While Walker tries to piece his life together, America is beginning to come apart: deeply paranoid, doubting its own certainties, riven by social and racial division, spiralling corruption and the collapse of the inner cities. The Long Take is about a good man, brutalised by war, haunted by violence and apparently doomed to return to it - yet resolved to find kindness again, in the world and in himself. Robin Robertson's The Long Take is a work of thrilling originality.

A collection of stories from some of the world's greatest writers about their own public humiliation. Humiliation is not, of course, unique to writers. However, the world of letters does seem to offer a near-perfect micro-climate for embarrassment and shame. There is something about the conjunction of high-mindedness and low income that is inherently comic; something about the very idea of deeply private thoughts - carefully worked and honed into art over the years - being presented to a public audience of dubious strangers, that strays perilously close to tragedy. Here, in over eighty contributions, are stories about the writer's audience, the fellow readers, the organiser, the venue, the `hospitality', or the often interminable journey there and back. Then there are the experiences of teaching and being taught, reviewing and being reviewed, of festivals and writers' retreats, symposia, signing sessions, literary parties and prizes, the trips abroad, with all the attendant joys of translation and, finally, the bright worlds of television and radio that can bring so many more people to share in your shame. These are the best stories: those told against the teller. And for the reader, apart from the sheer schadenfreude of it all, there is admiration too: for that acknowledgement of human frailty, of punctured pride, but also of the seeming absurdity of trying to bring private art into the public space. Contributions from, amongst others: Simon Armitage, Margaret Atwood, Julian Barnes, Louis de Bernieres, Margaret Drabble, Roddy Doyle, AL Kennedy, John Lanchester, Patrick McCabe, Rick Moody, Andrew Motion, Andrew O'Hagan, Colm Toibin, Irvine Welsh, James Wood.
For the millions of home cooks who swear by the ease and convenience of the slow cooker, this book provides a new array of healthy, delicious recipes. And for the millions of vegetarians looking for simple, hearty fare, this book introduces them to the magic of slow cooking. The book proves that slow cookers can be used for much more than just tough, inexpensive cuts of meat. They are perfect for vegetarian and healthy cooking because slow cooking is a foolproof way to make beans, grains, root vegetables, in preparations such as Spicy White Bean and Sweet potato Stew with Collards, Balsamic-Glazed Carrots and Parsnips, and Boston Brown Bread. Stuffed vegetables such as Bell Peppers Stuffed with Couscous and Lentils, are moist and tender, with none of the oven's dryness. Even desserts such as Chocolate Fancy Fondue and Brandy-Laced Pear Brown Betty, are sensational.
This book represents the best of the first three years of the
Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology conferences. While chaos
theory has been a topic of considerable interest in the physical
and biological sciences, its applications in psychology and related
fields have been obscured until recently by its complexity.
Nevertheless, a small but rapidly growing community of
psychologists, neurobiologists, sociologists, mathematicians, and
philosophers have been coming together to discuss its implications
and explore its research possibilities.
Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of successful books in the vegetarian/vegan category. Her earlier cookbook, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow-Cooker, established her bona fides as an expert on the creative use of slow-cookers, and her entire body of work speaks to her ingenuity in the kitchen and the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works. Fresh from the Vegan Slow-Cooker provides practical guidence on how to work with different models of slow-cookers, taking into account the sizes of various machines, the variety of settings they offer, and the quirks and personalities of each device. She addresses any lingering skepticism readers may have about whether slow-cookers can have delicious, meat-free applications, and she shows how to take into account the water content of vegetables and the absorptive qualities of grains when vegan slow-cooking. Fresh from the Vegan Slow-Cooker includes eleven recipe chapters, four of which focus on main courses. There are homey and comforting foods in the American and European style, such as a Rustic Pot Pie Topped with Chive Biscuits and a Ziti with Mushroom and Bell Pepper Ragu, and there are lots of East Asian, South and Southeast Asian, and Mexican/Latin dishes, too. Beans, which cook slowly under any circumstance, are fabulously well-suited to the slow cooker, and Robertson includes such appealing recipes as a Crockery Cassoulet and a Greek-Style Beans with Tomatoes and Spinach. Eighteen robust chilis and stews - two more categories that do well in the slow-cooker - include a warming Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Winter Squash and a surprising but yummy Seitan Stroganoff. Beyond the mains, there are chapters devoted to snacks and appetizers, desserts, breads and breakfasts, and even one on drinks. The many soy-free and gluten-free recipes are clearly identified. Altogether, the collection offers readers loads of ways to expand their vegan repertoire and to get maximum value from their investment in a slow-cooker.
Charged with strangeness and beauty, Hill of Doors is a haunted and haunting book, where each successive poem seems a shape conjured from the shadows, and where the uncanny is made physically present. The collection sees the return of some familiar members of the Robertson company, including Strindberg - heading, as usual, towards calamity - and the shape-shifter Dionysus. Four loose retellings of stories of the Greek god form pillars for the book, alongside four short Ovid versions. Threaded through these are a series of pieces about the poet's childhood on the north-east coast, his fascination with the sea and the islands of Scotland. However, the reader will also discover a distinct new note in Robertson's austere but ravishing poetry: towards the possibility of contentment - a house, a door, a key - finding, at last, a `happiness of the hand and heart'. Magisterial in its command and range, indelibly moving and memorable in its speech, Hill of Doors is Robin Robertson's most powerful book to date.
The old songs will have to change.
Sailing the Forest, Robin Robertson's Selected Poems, is the definitive guide to one of the most important poetic voices to have emerged from the UK in the last twenty-five years. Robertson's lyrical, brooding, dark and often ravishingly beautiful verse has seen him win almost every major poetry award; readers on both sides of the Atlantic have delighted in his preternaturally accurate ear and eye, and his utterly distinctive way with everything from the love poem to the macabre narrative. This book is both an ideal introduction to a necessary poet, and a fine summary of the great range and depth of Robertson's work to date.
Robin Robertson's fourth collection is, if anything, an even more intense, moving, bleakly lyrical, and at times shocking book than Swithering, winner of the Forward Prize. These poems are written with the authority of classical myth, yet sound utterly contemporary: the poet's gaze -- whether on the natural world or the details of his own life -- is unflinching and clear, its utter seriousness leavened by a wry, dry and disarming humour. Alongside fine translations from Neruda and Montale and dynamic (and at times horrific) retellings of stories from Ovid, the poems in The Wrecking Light pitch the power and wonder of nature against the frailty and failure of the human. Ghosts sift through these poems -- certainties become volatile, the simplest situations thicken with strangeness and threat -- all of them haunted by the pressure and presence of the primitive world against our own, and the kind of dream-like intensity of description that has become Robertson's trademark. This is a book of considerable grandeur and sweep which confirms Robertson as one of the most arresting and powerful poets at work today. 'Robin Robertson continues to explore the bleak, beautiful territory that he has made his own. His stripped-bare lyricism, haunted by echoes of folksong, is as unforgiving as the weather and poems such as 'At Roane Head' show him writing at the height of his considerable powers' The Times
This collection includes Robertson's version of Ovid, "The Flaying of Marsyas", and "Camera Obscura", in which he uses the imagined diary of David Octavius Hill, counterpointed by a narrative of the city of Edinburgh, to portray a life in crisis and the last flowering of the Scottish enlightenment.

Another powerful collection from the poet who launched the Picador poetry list, author of A Painted Field, which won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. His main subject is his own detached, fierce, Scottish eye: on landscape and sea, on love, sex, violence. His use of language is deadpan, tense, precise, unforgiving.

Praise for The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook: ''The allure of 'meat and potato' comfort food lies as much in its simple preparation as it does in presentation and taste. To this end, Robertson concentrates on dishes that simmer, bake, and slowly roast their way straight to the dinner table with no last-minute finishing.'' - ForeWord magazine Praise for Vegan Planet: ''Robertson shows that the culinary possibilities are endless, whether it's imitating a traditionally meat- or dairy-filled food with vegetable ingredients or scouring the cuisines of the world for some unusual vegetable dishes.'' - Winston-Salem Journal '' Vegan Planet is an instant classic, a book that will be guiding cooks long after its novelty wears off ... a Joy of Cooking for vegans. Like that book, it is authoritative, encyclopedic, and complete.'' - VegNews Robin Robertson is a vegetarian-cooking instructor and former chef. She has written several books, including Vegan Planet, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, and The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook. She lives in Woodstock, Virginia, where she is a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers.
