Joshua Ploeg's cooking blows my mind so much that a secret door opens in the back of my head and white doves, musical notes, and winged horses fly out. His cooking is transcendent: dangerous, strange and perfect. It's full of colorful tastes that explode in your mouth like Pop Rocks flavor combinations you never thought possible. Crazy alchemy. Freaky magic. Joshua's been in a bunch of hardcore bands and he brings all the good things punk rock gave us: risk, passion, creativity, and weirdness; then he applies them to his meals.

He has also contributed recipes and columns to various publications including Brooklyn's Satya Magazine.
" ... he put out a little gem of a cookbook a few years ago entitled In Search of the Lost Taste. It’s a whole $8, so just STFU and get a copy. It has tastes I would never think to put together, but I’m glad he did. From sweet to savory, sometimes using local fresh ingredients, sometimes using tofutti cream cheese, and always using what’s on hand (although you might not have it on hand...) it’s one of the most diverse little cookbooks out there. Plus he cooks the way I do, which is to say 'if you’ve got some extra XYZ, you should just go ahead and throw that in there...' Like I said, it’s a little gem." —kitsch & kitchen
"There’s no shame in getting a little creative, cruelty-free cooking help. Sac’s own traveling vegan chef Joshua Ploeg published a vegan cookbook/comic book last year called In Search of the Lost Taste. The instructions are written without pretentiousness, and his combination of flavors are unexpected, even a bit exotic. He includes animal-product-free recipes for cocktails, tea, shakes, sorbets, appetizers and entrees for the experimental gourmand, including Deep Fried Blueberry 'Steak' Balls, if you have the balls to try it.

"Some people make simple, filling meals. Others treat cooking like one big science experiment, and there are those who are more successful than others. In Search of the Lost Taste is a vegan cookbook from Joshua Ploeg, a man who takes a fresh and exciting approach to vegan cooking, doing everything from simulated fried food to Miso Marys. With a strange, surreal story alongside the recipes, In Search of the Lost Taste is a cookbook experimental chefs will love." —Midwest Book Review
