My Name Is Spice

For the love of vegetables..

Imogen Taylor - Friday, July 29, 2016

Even in Winter it is rewarding to celebrate Nature's bounty in the form of fruits and vegetables.

I have used the under-rated cauliflower and tossed it in spices; then served it up with an array of lettuces, rocket, and fresh pear, herbs and basil flowers.

This Chermoula spice blend is made up of the warm earthy end of the spice spectrum; which lends itself to root vegetables and Winter cooking generally


NB, the warming spices in this instance be turmeric, cumin and paprika (three of fifteen spices I use in this Moroccan blend).

Spices each have different personalities, and different roles to play in any given situation. (I like to think of them as people)!!


Aubergine Roulade with a Moroccan spicy rice filling

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, March 27, 2016



I have made these little eggplant roulades and served them on a bed of Moroccan-jewelled rice. I have added diced peaches and scattered some toasted hazelnuts to set this dish a-wagging!!

The rice is spiced with the famous Moroccan "Ras el Hanout" spice blend (this particular one is from my own range); lending the dish an exotic flavour.
