Chef Taylor was very quick and responsive to my initial messages. He asked me a variety of questions about the event I was hosting. He told me about himself and his specialties. After some back and forth about what I was looking for, Chef Taylor put together a menu and pricing. The menu sounded great and the pricing was very reasonable. I paid 50% deposit and booked him about 3 weeks ahead of our event. The week prior, we confirmed and set an arrival time. Chef arrived on time and started setting up. He wore a mask the entire evening and was very considerate of social distancing. Chef was very friendly and professional. We were served our first course right on time. Chef described all his dishes and answered any questions we had. His food was nothing short of amazing. Very creative with ingredients and extremely fresh and quality as well. The portions were perfectly sized. And the presentation was artful. Everything tasted great, but the desert was a smash hit. My wife, who is GF and very health conscience never has more than a bit or two of deserts, well she had two full plates of his Matcha Olive Oil cake with Chantilly Lavender whipped cream. Once we had our desert we enjoyed the company of our guests and Chef came back to let us know he was finished and had cleaned up. Our kitchen was actually cleaner than when he arrived. Another bonus. We are very much looking forward to having Chef Taylor for future events. Very highly recommended.

Chef Taylor provided the ultimate VIP experience to help us celebrate an anniversary. From the start, he was quick, professional, and clear in his communication. We collaborated on the menu and the details of the night, and wow, let me tell you he did not disappoint! We asked for a mostly vegan menu and he cooked some of the best food we’ve ever eaten! Simply outstanding! Do not skip dessert either. You need his olive oil matcha cake in your life.

Well, wow, I'm struggling to even find the words to describe how out of this world Taylor's food was. Genuinely, I and my dinner guests unanimously agreed his dishes were some of the most delicious food we've ever tasted!! From the get-go, Taylor was so responsive, personable, and fun to work with. From the basic ideas I had, he brought a stunning menu to life that was creative and also worked with the dietary restrictions in the group. Onsite, he was so organized and prepared and brought a great energy to the room. He had a stellar team that helped serve the dishes. His presentation of the food was phenomenal. I had a friend show up that I wasn't anticipating and Taylor was even prepared for the unexpected + graciously rolled with it. I truly can't say enough good things!! From start to finish, Taylor was more than I could have hoped for. Hire him. You will be glad you did!!
