Taste Talks is a national series of festivals celebrating the future of taste through symposia, awards, tastings, dinners and parties. We are thrilled to be returning to Brooklyn September 8-10 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.
"Brooklyn has made as much of a name for itself on the city's food scene as Manhattan, and the annual Taste Talks series gathers some of its best chefs for a weekend of talking about why it's better in Brooklyn, then putting their knives to use proving it." - Metro NY
"The festival is as much about talking about food as it is eating it, with panels, discussions, cooking demos and tastings." - amNewYork
"The Future Food Expo showcases the future of food products, companies, media and innovators from Brooklyn and around the world." - CBS New York
"A national food festival centered around bringing together local chefs, restaurateurs, and food enthusiasts hosts an impressive slew of speakers from Brooklyn-based places." - Thrillist
Thanks so much to all of our participating restaurants and talent at the 2017 festival. Can't wait to see you next year!
We’re pushing the boundaries of what a food awards program can be, putting our focus on culture, innovation and diversity. With over 25 award categories including best food startup, best food blog, and best non-profit, we're toasting chefs, restaurants, food media and more for their great taste.
This isn't your regular golf-claps awards ceremony, either: our live show brings energy to the format with musical performances, engaging demos with chefs, comedians, and live storytelling — not to mention your favorite chefs and cultural influencers all in attendance.
