We are thrilled to be returning to Chicago this October to bring together amazing chefs, restaurants and cultural figures together with everyday food enthusiasts to engage in great conversation, awesome food and one-of-a-kind experiences over 3 days.

Taste Talks is a national festival series, awards program, and editorial platform charting the future of taste. What started as a thought leadership conference and barbecue in Brooklyn is now four weekend-long celebrations of food, drink, culture, and music in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami as well as a dynamic editorial website and awards ceremony. 

From our unique position at the crossroads of food and culture, we create electric, forward-thinking conversations about eating and drinking. We work together with influential names in food and culture to craft events and content worth consuming. These are people with their pulses on the most ground-breaking trends in the food space: from Questlove to April Bloomfield, Sean Brock to Kelis, we excel at getting influencers and tastemakers to share their viewpoints and cravings with the world. 

Whether through our panels, tastings, and intimate dinners at our festivals or videos, interviews, and features at, we start unforgettable dialogues about eating, drinking, and what it all means.
