There's Always Something Happening at

We enjoy sharing our love of great food and wine with events throughout the year! Patrick Evans-Hylton's Chefs' Table cooking classes bring you into the TASTE kitchen to watch celebrated guest chefs prepare a sumptuous meal before your eyes. And you get to eat their homework!  Bottles & Bites is a wine and food tasting experience, also hosted by Patrick Evans-Hylton. The focus is educational (but definitely still fun!). Bottles & Bites is offered quarterly. We also host a variety of seasonal events that always promise foodie-fun! Check back often to see our upcoming events.

Are you interested in hosting your own event at a TASTE location? Our bright, contemporary spaces are available for rent to host your event outside of our standard business hours. Our spaces are perfect for birthdays, showers, reunions, and corporate events. We also offer private wine tastings and cooking classes

Virginia Willis Cookbook Signing at TASTE at Bayville Farms

BOOK SIGNINGS WITH SOUTHERN FOOD AUTHORITY AND WRITER VIRGINIA WILLIS!

Come get your signed copy of her brand new book Lighten Up, Y'all - Tuesday, March 31 11am-1pm at TASTE @ Bayville Farms & Wednesday, April 1 1pm-3pm at TASTE @ Norfolk. Mark your calendar!

Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child, prepared lunch for President Clinton, and catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda. She began her culinary career tossing pizzas in college, has since foraged for wild herbs in the Alps, made mustard in Dijon, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily, but it all started in her grandmother's country kitchen.

As a popular Southern food authority and writer, she is the author of Bon Appétit, Y'all and Basic to Brilliant, Y'all, Okra: A SAVOR THE SOUTH® cookbook, and Grits by Shortstack Editions. Her latest work, Lighten Up, Y'all celebrates the healthy and wholesome side of Southern fare.

She is also a regular blogger for FoodNetwork.com, as well as her own popular blog, that was tagged as a favorite by Saveur magazine. Named by the Chicago Tribune as one of "Seven Food Writers You Need to Know," her fans love her knack for giving classic French dishes a down-home comfort feel and reimagining Southern favorites.

A graduate of L'Academie de Cuisine and Ecole de Cuisine LaVarenne, her first job in a professional kitchen was as an apprentice for Nathalie Dupree's TV cooking show on PBS. Willis has subsequently worked on over 1000 TV episodes, as Kitchen Director for Martha Stewart and Bobby Flay, as well as Producer of Epicurious on The Discovery Channel and Home Plate for Turner Studios.

She has been featured in USA Today, Country Living, and House Beautiful as well as Food52 and CNN.com. She is a contributing editor to Southern Living and her writing has been published in Family Fun, Fine Cooking, All Recipes, and Taste of the South. She has appeared on Fox and Friends, Martha Stewart Living Television, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, Thrown Down with Bobby Flay, and on Food Network's Chopped.
