Get to know me better
I am a young and passionate chef who loves to cook with flavor and love, attention and care, especially in my own home
My name is Claire Bear Taylor and I am from the Jersey Channel Islands, living in Amsterdam.
I am a young and passionate chef who loves to cook with flavor and love, attention and care, especially in my own home. I started cooking very young as my mother never cooked for me and my siblings or even knew how to use an oven, I would read cook books or look for new recipes online but still being creative and adding a personal touch.
When I became a young teenager I started cooking classes in high school and went on to do Culinary Arts in the Jersey Channel Island Highlands College.
I love hospitality culture, I even myself treat my home as an open accommodation to young travelers with the application Couch Surfing, I cook everyday for many different people as many people stay with us , I even learn a new recipe from their culture from time to time and I believe that food is a great way to bring people together and I always prefer to cook in large quantities.
If I could describe my perfect job it would be to cook and prepare meals every day but In my own way, I'd like to have the freedom to create my own dishes and preparing theses dishes for the same people so I can bond well with them and their taste buds.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together.
I learned to cook at...
Self tort at an early age from home, leading up to cooking classes at Le Rocquier then Culinary Arts in the Jersey Channel Island Highlands College.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Jamie Oliver (healthy and tasty)
A cooking secret...
I can use left over ingredients in your kitchen to make into a 5 star meal that will also taste the part.
As a Private Chef, I can offer you:
