Welcome to All Ways Delicious! My name is Robin Donovan. I created All Ways Delicious to explore the world’s great cuisines and share my own adaptations with you.

I strive to make all of my recipes easy to recreate in a typical home kitchen. To that end, I offer helpful shortcuts and substitutions for hard-to-find ingredients.

My recipes are authentic, made easy—accessible recipes that strive to capture the original essence of a dish. And of course, they are All Ways Delicious.

A little more about me

I was raised by a foodie (mom was a food writer long before it was a thing) in a foodie town (Berkeley, CA), so it’s no wonder I’ve been obsessed with food my whole life. Now I spend my time in the kitchen developing recipes for my own cookbooks and my blog, All Ways Delicious, and for my clients. My “office” is our kitchen table. I’m lucky; the kitchen is my workplace and it’s also my happy place.

I’ve authored more than 40 cookbooks, including the bestselling Campfire Cuisine: Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors, Ramen Obsession, Sushi at Home, Deceptively Easy Dessert Cookbook, 5-Ingredient Cooking for Two, and Ramen for Beginners. Check out more of my cookbooks!

Cooking Light, Fitness, San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle‘s SFGate.com, and many other popular publications have featured my food writing. I also develop, write, test, and photograph recipes for large and small food companies, book and magazine publishers, and other clients.

I’m also a founder of Food Drink Life, a digital magazine full of inspiring and engaging content about food, drink, and the art of living.

In case you were wondering, I especially love spicy food and savory dumplings.

Thanks for visiting!
