Chef Taylor is amazing. We hired him to do a "high tea" for my bridal camp - the day of our wedding for the ladies and he absolutely delivered on every level. Creative menu, tasty food, elegant display, professional team, courteous - we wanted to adopt him into our family. The other ladies in attendance asked for his information so they could hire him for future events. Hire Chef Taylor - he will not disappoint!! Thank you Chef Taylor!

This was a large party with 45+ guests. I had many compliments from our guests about the quality of the food--everyone said it was delicious. The chef's team made sure everyone got plenty to eat, and circulated with champagne flutes to see that everyone could celebrate. A number of guests took the chef's card for possible future events. I would hire Chef Taylor again if the occasion arises.

Details: Birthday or anniversary party • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Alcoholic drinks • Coffee or tea • Dessert • American - casual • Small bites • No, drop off only • Outdoor venue • Yes, full kitchen • 40 - 49 guests • Disposable plates, utensils, and cups • Premium (high end ingredients)

Chef Taylor Dennis was spectacular. This is the very first time I have worked with hiring a private chef for a dinner and he went above and BEYOND my expectations. My guest raves about the food. He is truly a professional. If you are on the fence about who to work with, go no further, there is a REASON why he is top rated on this platform. He is great!
