Bea Taylor has been cooking up soul food in Minden for about 30 years. From the "shell plant" to Exacta Inn, she knows how to run a kitchen, and now she's doing it in downtown Minden at Timeless Cafe.
"I cook at home the same way I cook here," Taylor said. "I don't have to taste it. I just know. When I start cooking, by the time I get done, it's enough for a restaurant."
And no wonder with four kids, 15 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
