The Future of Taste

The All-Star Mashups


The All-Star Mashups

Will Levitt

Collaboration leads to greater success than one could manage alone. It's been proven again and again - in almost every situation -  by scientists, designers and creativity experts. Bringing two or more people together to share fresh ideas and unique perspectives results in a superior product.

At Taste Talks, we know that to be true. We’ve seen it, and, well, we’ve eaten it.  For our All-Star BBQ, we invite world renowned chefs to choose a grilling mate and tell them to make something great.  We’ve had pop stars, tattoo artists, farmers, and creative directors all join our Taste Talks BBQ chefs at the grill.

In both Brooklyn and Chicago, we partnered up with our friends at San Pellegrino to record their collaborative brilliance. See four very special All-Star BBQ mashups below and let us know what you think!
