My Name Is Spice

Meet the Fockers

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, January 14, 2017


I like my food to have Big Personality! These were great fun to make; I have roasted the fennel in the oven while pan-frying the felafels.

For the base we have herbed polenta. And on top of the felafel layer is cucumber, then shitake mushrooms, then fresh fennel.

Drizzle with a tasty dressing and you're all set! (Don't they look like little characters)?!


This second dish uses the exact same ingredients; but i have assembled them differently (the following day).

This assemblage would be lovely with a subtle but rich vegetable stock poured into the bowl just prior to serving. Eh oui?


Raw individual cheesecakes with a mixed berry syrup topping

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, January 12, 2017


Cashew-based raw cheesecake with boysenberry/raspberry topping. The world of RAW is no longer the poor cousin!

A plant-based diet is full of joy. And believe it or not - full of flavour..

With dried fruit and nuts you can make a tasty "biscuit" base; (I like to add some whole linseed and coconut or ground almonds).

The most successful ingredient for re-creating the creamy, cheesy layer is the cashew nut; soaked then blended with lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut oil or coconut butter. Miso paste is another effective ingredient for creating the sour "tang" required in a good cheesecake.

For the top layer; frozen berries blended with chia seeds (take it easy on the chia) and a non-refined sugar syrup such as agave or maple, makes an effective "jam" syrup to finish the cheesecake off.


I served this with a chrysanthemum and goji berry tea, hence the garnish..
