Where We Are
We are located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the base of Pikes Peak, America's mountain. We both treasure our city and home, and the growing and rich food culture here. We are proud to be a part of it, and look forward to sharing it with all of you!
What sets Season Two Taste apart is our deep rooted love for seasonal and local cooking. We believe that at its core, cooking should be an expression of love. Eating and cooking are, agricultural and spiritual acts, and we strive to give them that level of respect.
What to Expect
- Recipes - We have a wide array of recipes to share. They will be detailed and in depth, with as many chef tips and helpful hints as possible. The recipe format quite often suffers from generalities and assumptions, so those will be avoided as much as possible. In their place, there will be very specific measurements and instructions, written in easy to understand language.
- Support - We look forward to hearing from you! It is our sincere desire to create a community base on a mutual love of cooking and food, Try the recipes, cook new things, and tell us about your mistakes, questions, and victories! We love nothing more than to explore and learn by helping you to do the same.
- Stories - Jason is writing a series of short stories based on the crazy, inspiring, and humorous kitchen experiences that he has collected over the years. They represent a raw and uncensored look at the world behind the stoves. Just follow the link "Kitchen Stories"
Happy Cooking and Eating!
