Taylor graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2013 before completing the L'Art du Gateaux program at the French Pastry School Chicago with honors. She continued her education at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, where she completed the Diplôme de Pâtisserie with honors in 2015.
Taylor fed her love for travel with a series of internships from the Virgin Islands, to Paris, to New York City. She had the opportunity to work with extremely talented pastry chefs in their renowned establishments, such as La Patisserie Cyril Lignac and Ron Ben Israel Cakes.
Taylor moved to Seattle in 2016 to experience all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. She found work for a while with a custom cake shop that has been featured on The Food Network shows such as Ridiculous Cakes and Cake Wars.
After honing her skills in production and technique, Taylor is now bringing her personal vision and style to life. Named after the street where she lived in Paris, Rue Cler Seattle [pronounced “Rue-Claire”] is the dream that evolved from a classic pastry education, artistic ability, and patient practice. She has the artistic eye and passion for experimenting that makes Rue Cler Seattle truly unique.
