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.
When he's not digging into his fridge at home, you'll find Ryan Taylor at Hickory & Ash, 80001 Arista Place in Broomfield. The restaurant is open from 5 to 10 p.m. daily; find out more at 720-390-4400 or ktrg.net/hickory-ash.
