Beauty, Fame, And Food

Taylor Anne Erickson is an American model and chef.  By the age of 18, she was living abroad in Greece, France and Italy pursuing her lifelong dream of being a model. During her overseas travels, she was having lunch at a small, humble restaurant (that was very subtle in decor and character) and that is when the light bulb went off. “It was love at first taste and from that moment on, I knew without a doubt what I needed to do. I went back to the states and enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu School for French Cuisine.”

“I have been in love with cooking, and food for that matter, since before I can remember. Long before culinary school, I traveled the world in search of the perfect consume…the creamiest risotto…the one that just barely runs but curiously stays intact…and the most fragrant truffles…and the pasta…that’s for another time because there isn’t enough room in a summary! I am happy to say that I finally found most of what I was looking for in one place, Paris.”

Taylor is known for her videos and her beauty. “I take my video camera everywhere with me and have made sure to capture all of this crazy adventure. The kitchen is a place where the action never stops…. I suppose this is both the most challenging and most amazing part of this industry. I believe that a true chef is an artist. At the base, it’s all about that magic of creating something from nothing. I believe in putting your heart into it. After Arpege, I am planning on taking my culinary career in the direction of food media. I love the idea of sharing the excitement of food with millions of viewers.”

In 2010, after the horrific earthquake hit Haiti, Taylor was involved in starting a camp in Jacmel, Haiti for women and children. This led her to serve as ambassador to a charity Word & Action, which is involved in stopping child abuse in Haiti and helping to create a healthy environment for children to thrive and dream. As ambassador to Word & Action, she contributes efforts by raising awareness for the aims, objectives, and priorities of the organization. “Traveling and meeting a wide range of influential people in many industries from fashion, to the culinary arts, to film, to humanitarian efforts, has definitely aided in my ability to promote for this cause. If we can all somehow come together the force of aid would be momentous.”

Taylor is also on the board of Foundation Appui A L’Education. FAE is a foundation that works to rebuild Haiti’s schools that were destroyed in the earthquake.

  • 它讓神經原在常規的緊張鍛煉中進行共振燃燒,由此帶來健身運動所無法達到的效果。Ion Magnum複雜的振動波是基于於二十多年對神經原燃燒信號的研究手工製作的。 設備製造者的臨床研究結果顯示,30分鐘的治療相當於在健身房10個小時的運動,可以燃燒高達5000卡路里的熱量。其他臨床研究顯示肌肉生成的速度以及脂肪(表面脂肪以及深部脂肪)减少的速度相應都比運動的效果更好。對於Ion Magnum沒有進行理療的部位,甚至會有抗衰老防氧化的效果。 有受試者治療一次之後同一個部位减掉了3-4英寸(不像其他减肥治療中宣稱的那樣,一次治療减掉了5英寸,但那是全身20多個部位加起來减掉的尺寸)。同時,它還可以减掉脖子和下巴的脂肪,讓你的雙下巴消失 . 每次治療需要25分鐘。治療前後的效果非常明顯,而且會持續1-2天。要想達到更好的效果,最好接受1-2個小時的治療。
