Taylor’s Quick Bite, “I truly enjoy the feeling of shopping at the market and cooking for my kids.”

Taylor’s All-Star Technique:

“The best tip I learned: When making a sauce for your pasta, put 1/2 a cup of the cooking water in the sauce. The starch from the pasta will thicken and flavor it in one step.”

Was Rachael or Guy more competitive?

“Don’t let Guy’s fun rock ‘n’ roll side or his sweet grin fool you. He’s a competitive animal!”

Taylor before the show, “I cooked a random mixture of things that everyone lovingly called goulash, even though it wasn’t.”

And now, “I can make veal marsala … from scratch!”
