About us

Have questions about Taste Society? You can email us directly at info@tastesociety.com

Taste Society was created by a group of food loving individuals who needed a place to chronicle their food journeys. Eventually, they hope to build up a knowledge-base of all known foods and related information. Help them on their quest for food knowledge! Visit our Facebook or blog for our updates :)
