Flavor Profile: Oak & Almond in Norwalk
The chef's last name is familiar. Oak & Almond's executive chef Jeff Taibe is, indeed, the brother of Bill Taibe of The Whelk and Le Farm. Let's just get that out of the way. They are both chefs. They share an attractive, family resemblance (they have very blue eyes). They revel in ingredients. They both serve pigs tails. Jeff Taibe is the younger brother and when he talks about where he gets his ingredients and how he likes to cook them, there's a palpable enthusiasm.
