“The nation’s premier food and nutrition guru.” —Huffington Post


Mixing equal parts scientific authority and easy southern charm, Dr. Taylor Wallace is the professor you wish you had. His appearances are fresh, fun and unapologetically geeky, designed to take the intimidation out of complex science. Both rigorous and eminently likeable, Taylor shoots down food myths with cold hard science and then hands you a perfectly caramelized slice of apple cake. Taylor’s mission is to make a healthy and safe food supply accessible to everyone — and to have a delicious time doing it.
