About Us

Our Mission

To propagate and perpetuate the joy, learning, and camaraderie created by exploring and sharing scrumptious foods and satiating beverages with scintillating company.  

Our Passion

We love a great party! Jennifer Yang has been cooking since she was 10 and has planned simple dinner parties for 4 to black-tie galas for 500. She started TasteBuds Events as a company that specialized in themed food and beverage tasting experiences. Her partner, Drew Cockley, started working with food in high school and ran his own kitchen right after college. Their goal is to create unique, fun, and (somewhat) educational events for friends, family members, and colleagues to enjoy. We offer: 

  • A private tasting club with members-only events
  • Customized event planning for your special occasion (e.g., corporate function, birthday party, bachelor/ette party, etc.)
  • Personal chef services and at-home cooking lessons

Our Services

We love bringing together people who have a common passion for food, wine, and spirits. Not only will we learn more about what we are tasting, but also learn from each other. Some of our members-only events included:
