Chef Dom Taylor. 

Chef Dom Taylor is a classically trained chef who aims to modernise Caribbean cookery. Raised in South London by a Jamaican mother and Saint-Lucian father, he learned how to cook Caribbean staples at a young age, particularly the Caribbean staple, Rice and Peas, a temperamental dish he came to master a number of years later.

 

He studied professional cookery and hospitality management before gaining experience in South Carolina, USA.

Gaining valuable experience in a variety of restaurants and hotels, Dom went on to become Head Chef at Belgraves Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel in Belgravia, London, where he truly came to understand five-star standards of service. After five years, he moved on to become Head Chef at The Courthouse Hotel, a large banqueting hotel in Shoreditch, East London. This was followed by a two-year stint as Executive Chef at a brunch-focused restaurant group, The Jam Tree.

Dom decided it was time to pursue his dream of running his own business which is when Chef Dom Taylor Kitchen was born. Its vision was to deliver Caribbean cookery authentically and respectfully to a wider audience. With that same intention, Dom took part in the TV programme Five Star Kitchen: Britain’s Next Great Chef, which aired on C4 in July 2023 - leading him to open The Good Front Room at The Langham, London.

They are currently based in South East London and create some awesome hand-crafted beers.
