Private Chef Taylor Byrd

My Culinary Path


Born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast just outside of New Orleans; growing up in the carnival nature of the region, built a lifelong understanding of how food plays an important part in a festive culture and the memories associated with a great meal helped shape my passion for cooking. After graduating from Ole Miss and a couple years in the financial sector, I moved to Australia with two friends to work and travel. During my tenure, I befriended a chef of a famous restaurant in Sydney. His love of his craft and frequently cooking together with our friends inspired me to consider a professional culinary career. Upon returning stateside, I enrolled in the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute located in Austin, TX. After graduating, I continued growing as a cook in restaurants across Austin and in New York City.


Taking years of experience with varied cuisine styles, I decided to step out on my own to start Byrd Provisions in an effort to get back to what led me down this path in the first place: creating experiences and memories for friends and families to share around food.
