-Ginger's Team Spotlight- Taylor Dacey Barnes started working with us at Ginger's Garden Cafe on 03/27/2009. Anyone in the food business or any business for that matter knows how incredible it is to get 7 years of hard work and service from an intelligent, creative individual. Finding the words to express gratitude for everything Dacey brings to the table (literally) is no easy task.
Dacey is a talented raw vegan Chef. She is able to create new recipes on the fly and can simplify recipes that are difficult to understand or hard to execute with consistency. She is the magician behind several recipes here at the cafe that we couldn't live without. Our raw vegan version of bacon we call facon is one of these. We were disappointed with the quality of ingredients in many of our vegan 'meat' options and had been exploring our own whole food versions of these. Dacey was able to take what we had been playing with and turn it into something so crispy and flavorful. She is also the creator of our raw vegan crackers something many customers drive a long way to get. Most raw flax seed crackers are full of flavor but the texture is often hard to chew and the seeds stick in your teeth. Texture is one of Dacey's specialties. Not only are these crackers easy to chew but the soft crunch makes you want to keep eating more! She has improved upon our falafel balls and veggie burger patties and is the Master of our vegan ranch dressing. She makes vegan gluten free soups for us and her own lunches are always coveted, encouraging all of us to step it up a notch when it comes to feeding ourselves.
Art is another one of Dacey's passions. You can see her paintings displayed around the Herb Shop and in our kitchen on cabinets and doors :). She offers community art classes here at the shop on Sundays. Her classes are a lot of fun. She brings community together with purpose and does a beautiful job helping people tap in to their own inner artist. You can get more info about this on her FaceBook page. Everyone here at the cafe feels immense gratitude for you Dacey. You are an amazing a co-worker. We can always depend on but more than that you are a loyal friend to each of us.
