Throughout my career, I’ve had the great fortune to work on some truly inspiring projects, while meeting many influential and creative individuals along the way. I Graduated from the Culinary Institute of Virginia in 2015. From there I worked at Colonial Williamsburg in many different culinary positions. After that, I moved on to Waypoint Seafood and Grille and was mentored by Chef Hans Schadler. While at Waypoint, I had the opportunity to cook for Ozzy Osbourne and Richard Petty. Executive Chef Hans J. Schadler savors a culinary career that spans more than 45 years of cooking for multiple Presidents of United States, heads of state, royalty, dignitaries and countless hotel and resort guests from around the world.
From there I moved on to The Williamsburg Winery where I was hired to take over their Banquet Program, whereas before I arrived they outsourced with catering companies. In 2017 I was hired as their Banquet Chef and I continued to thrive. While at the winery I executed all corporate events, weddings, marketing events, diamond resort events, and concerts for up to 2,200 people. I cooked for many celebrities while at the winery including: Jason Mraz, LeAnn Rimes, Andy Grammar, MAX, and Hanson.
Back in September of 2022, I decided to soft Launch my Small Business Called: Personal Experiences with Chef Taylor I am a traveling personal chef in the Hampton Road area!
