The Future of Taste


Taste Talks at SXSW!

Juliann DiNicola


We took some time during SXSW this past Sunday for a discussion at the #DellLounge about the future of taste, tech, and entrepreneurship.

The evening kicked off with a panel led by our host and Taste Talks Brooklyn curator Questlove, who was joined by Liz Lambert (Bunkhouse), Eileen Gordon (Barnraiser), Michael Chiarello (Gruppo Chiarello), Josh Hare (Hops & Grain), and Jody Reyes (WhichCraft Beer Store).

"Beer used to be a working class beverage Now beer is the topic of conversation. Makers of beer just want you to enjoy it." from Josh Hare, Hops & Grain

"People repeat negative experiences 10 times more often than positive ones, but if you have the opportunity to correct it, then they'll repeat that even more." from Chef Michael Chiarello 

After the panel, attendees noshed on beer can chicken, short ribs, grilled oysters,  and chocolate caramel cake, provided by four kickass Chef Mashups: Luke Shaffer (290 Grind) & Adrian Grenier (Churchkey Can Co.), Chef Andrew Wiseheart (Contigo) & Jennie Kelley (The Polyphonic Spree), Jason Stude (Second Bar + Kitchen) & Andrew Pertes (of Penguin Prison & Savoir Adore), and Jessica Maher (Lenoir) & Steve Terebecki (White Denim).

Finally, we’re thrilled to announce that this event was the kickoff to a year-long Dell and Northside partnership!  In the coming months, will be featuring stories highlighting the entrepreneurs, founders and small business leaders from Brooklyn, Miami and Chicago celebrating Dell's ongoing committment to entrepreneurs and small business. Stay tuned and continue the conversation at #SBinsider!
