Thank you, BROOKLYN!


#TasteTalks #TheTastys

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!

The Future Food Expo is a showcase and celebration of what's next in food and drink! As America’s hottest test kitchen, Brooklyn has become an international epicenter of the food movement. This event showcases the future of food products, companies, startups, technology, media and innovators from right here in Brooklyn and around the world!


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.
