Chef Taylor was great. Very knowledgeable, extremely engaging and comfortable to be around. He allowed us to participate as much or little as we were comfortable with and the food was amazing. We'll probably try his pasta making class next.

We had a wonderful time with Chef Taylor learning how to make green goddess salad, rissoto, salmon (he prepared a cauliflower steak for my wife since she's vegetarian), and sous vide cheesecake. We could tell that a lot of thought and dedication went into the recipes he developed and everything was tasty and bursting with flavor. He made his recipes very approachable, explaining each step and involving us in the cooking process by showing us, e.g., techniques on slicing veggies (prop your knuckle against the blade to avoid cutting yourself!) and on searing salmon (scoring the skin to produce a crispy crust). One of the things I liked the most is that he uses everyday ingredients, like salmon from Costco and daisy sour cream and cherry tomatoes from Wegmans, to make delicious and inventive creations. Not everyone wants to shell out for specialty ingredients at Whole Foods, and we appreciated that he used quality, but accessible, ingredients for home cooks to be able to replicate in their own kitchens. Both Chef Taylor, his wife (also named Taylor), and their dog Tot were friendly and hospitable. Highly recommend.
