About Us


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
  • Personal chef services and at-home cooking lessons


Whisk(e)y Labs

At TasteBuds Events, we love experimenting with whisk(e)y - so much so that we created Whisk(e)y Labs (a subsidary of TasteBuds Events LLC). At Whisk(e)y Labs, we tap into our inner whisk(e)y nerd and explore various aspects of whisk(e)y, including teaching, tasting, and testing. If you know any whisk(e)y lovers, this is the perfect club for them! [Whisk(e)y Labs' website under construction. Contact us at for more information.
