Through travel and work abroad for many years, she has developed what might be called Spanish-French-Italian Mediterranean cooking style, with an emphasis on Middle Eastern flavors with a California twist.

Teaching locally at the Lavender Inn in Ojai, CA, Robin develops and fully infuses lavender into recipes that have been featured during the Ojai Lavender Festival for several years.
