The Experience:

Spend the morning at Ella cafe in Palm Court with one of the most sought after men in holistic cooking.  Grab a coffee and a light breakfast while you learn about Yaniv’s personal journey, the benefits of spices and herbs, and even pick up a few tips for using spices and essential oils at home to enhance your mind, body, and spiritual wellbeing.  


It’s no secret that Miami is an international hub for cultural art.  The city has attracted a melting pot of artists, creatives and dreamers over the years, that have left a diverse and distinctive appreciation in the air for all things art.  The Miami Design District is a creative neighbourhood that features innovative fashion, design, art, architecture, dining and of course, shopping.

We all have a purpose. A passion. Some of us are blessed enough to find out exactly what that is early on in life, while others must navigate through the process of trial and error, trying on as many different hats as we can until we find one that fits and feels just right. We know when we have found it, it’s the one that brings an unmistakable amount of raw joy and fulfillment flooding into our hearts and souls. It’s the thing that fuels our fire to take action and initiative. The very flame that ignites a spark deep within the depths of our consciousness and radiates love and light through us to spread to the rest of the world.


For Yaniv Cohen, he was one of the lucky ones who found his passion for flavourful food at an early age. “As the oldest of 5 boys I was in charge of helping my mother cook and set the table. Growing up in Israel in a Sephardic Jewish family with North African and Middle Eastern roots, food was and still is an important part of our culture. It is a way of life. Every Shabbat and holiday had its unique set of incredible dishes. There was not a single dish that our family and friends served that was not beautifully seasoned. I was always fascinated with the colours, scents, origins, and properties of those spices.”

Since his adolescence “The Spice Detective” has travelled all over the globe on a journey to seek out nature’s seasonings and infuse them in his cooking. As his palette expanded so did his knowledge in the medicinal properties of food, herbs and spices. Yaniv felt the need to expand the perception of natural healing remedies in a time where Western medicine has taken the center stage.  For centuries humans have depended on our Mother’s natural elements like herbs, plants and spices to treat a myriad of medical conditions, but that is being pushed out by pharmaceuticals and unnatural supplements in this modern day and age.


The private chef also dons an impressive array of other creative hats, being the culinary director for Shiraz Events and has directed events for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Dior. Yaniv has never let his passionate flame dim, he took that leap where so many of us are afraid to even take that step. He bet on himself and has since found tremendous success, working his way to the top with the very cream of the crop. The Spice Detective previously worked at Campanile in Los Angeles, which was owned by James Beard winner, Nancy Silverton. Yaniv’s impressive resume doesn’t stop there, he has worked along with some of the most recognisable names like Cindy Crawford and Mr. Ziggy Stardust himself.


Now his goal is to introduce as many people as he can to the incredibly flavorful world of Middle Eastern spices and herbs: their flavours, aromas, properties and health benefits. In 2018 The Spice Detective partnered with St. Roch Market to open Jaffa, a space to showcase his classic dishes that reflect his native Israel such as  turmeric roasted cauliflower, roasted carrots with labneh as well as a hummus bar, deconstructed baba ghanoush, and assorted grilled meats.
