Flavor of the Month
Convene with fellow foodies at Taste Talks
Your brother keeps insisting you watch that TED Talk about power posing. But all you want to do is grab him by the shoulders and ask: “Do you know me at all? Then why aren’t we talking about food?”
This weekend, rub elbows with your real tribe at Taste Talks, the first Chicago installment of celebrity chef Mario Batali’s three-day festival focused on the topic dearest to your stomach. (The first Taste Talks were held last year in Brooklyn.)
Chicago chef Paul Kahan (Blackbird, The Publican) has curated a lineup of 17 events that should appeal to industry pros and devoted eaters alike.
On our wish list: a down-to-earth discussion with serious veggie lovers, a tips-and-tricks session on how to snap better food photos (take that, Instagram feed) and a thoughtful look at the future of the meat industry.
You can snag single tickets to the events for anywhere from $10 to $90, or you can make a weekend of it with a Kitchen Sink Pass ($385), which gets you into everything on the agenda. Food-coma remedy not included.
