Ryan Taylor's Digital Daily Diary: Posole, Tacos and Valentina Hot Sauce

Our Chef and Tell interview with Hickory & Ash's Ryan Taylor covers the chef's childhood eating habits, his love of Mexican food, and what it was like to grow up as chef Kevin Taylor's son. Today the younger Taylor gives us a visual tour of his life at work and at home, including what he eats while he's studying, his go-to home-cooked meal, and what's in his fridge.

Taylor says posole is something he often has in the fridge at home. It's now on the menu at Hickory & Ash, too.EXPAND

Always in Taylor's fridge: hot sauce (Valentina), eggs, mustard and pickles. In the freezer are Haagen-Dazs bars, which he calls his guilty pleasure.EXPAND
