We are single men and women 40 and up who like to cook, eat, learn, and read about food.

“You know that scene in the deli from the movie When Harry Met Sally? That’s what I feel about food when it’s really good.” This quote, from Malcolm Gladwell’s novel Blink, is from a woman who is a professional food taster. How’s that for a dream job?! If you’re like me – single, 40+ and you enjoy cooking, learning and reading about food as much as you do eating it, then pull up a seat and join us at the dinner table, in the classroom, a book discussion - or anywhere else our stomachs may lead us.                


Before joining Tastebuds you should carefully read the policies which can be found on the Pages tab. Here you will find information on RSVPs, No-shows, Membership Fees, Guests, Participation, etc.
