A Matter of Taste Seattle

Class, Pop-Up Shop | Pioneer Square


Women Owned

We are a women-owned business specializing in tasting workshops, classes, and make-at-home kits. Our immersive culinary experiences offer:
-A deep dive into the cultural and historical uses of a food, flavor, or product
-An introduction into flavor language with detailed pairing guides
-Recipes, cooking demonstrations, and resources for further learning
We believe the experience of tasting brings people together. Join us for a class or get in touch to schedule a private team-building event for your group.

Team Building
We teach teams the language of flavor to inspire a deeper level of communication. Learning something new together unlocks deeper engagement, fosters collaboration, and grows shared memories of success.
Here’s a few examples of how we craft our unique events:
-Customize a training and chocolate tasting afternoon for your team on communication and change management. Earn continuing education units while learning the finer points of tasting chocolate and trends in regenerative cacao agriculture.
-Co-design a facilitated leadership deep dive into strategic collaboration through the lens of an Understanding Umami happy hour. Challenge assumptions about what foods taste (and what ideas work) amazing together, and why.
-Build a custom agenda-over a day or several- to deliver your blend of learning, doing, (eating!), celebrating and anchoring for the future. Breakout tastings and chef demos, connecting food origins to strategic goals, describing the recipes for team effectiveness.

About us
Co-founders Joanna and Jennifer have a combined 40+ years experience in team facilitation, change leadership, culinary innovation, food science, and workshop design. We draw from this unique mix of talents and skills to design, develop and deliver a custom experience to help your team dig deeper than the typical cooking class or corporate workshop.
