When she's not creating and overseeing digital content for Foodism, you can find Taylor sippin' on a sweet and delicious cocktail or slurpin' up some noodles (ramen, japchae, spaghettini — you name it). From oysters and nigiri to tartare, she loves anything raw. And her favourite pastime is tucking into a fried chicken sandwich and a glass of wine mid-bubble bath. She likes to eat; you get it.
