Taste Talks is back at the Williamsburg waterfront September 8-10. They're celebrating food during three jam-packed days of events including parties, dinners, panels and tastings. Check out some highlights below!

The Tastys (Friday, Sept 8): Taste Talks is thrilled to raise the curtain of year two of The Tastys: a celebration of what's inspiring the new generation of eaters, drinkers, and innovators hosted by Matty Matheson of VICELAND's Dead Set on Life. They’re pushing the boundaries of what a food awards program can be, putting their focus on culture, innovation and diversity. With over 25 award categories including best food startup, best food Instagram account, and best non-profit, Taste Talks is toasting chefs, restaurants, food media and more for their great taste.

Taste Talks Brunch + Conference
