TASTEMAKERS is a membership of the Piedmont Culinary Guild working to connect individuals and communities to local food: the people who grow it as well as the chefs and artisans who prepare it.

Join us in our efforts to build a healthy, vibrant local food economy in the Charlotte region and beyond!

Not sure if TASTEMAKERS is right for you?

  • Do you have a passion for sustainably grown food and profound taste experiences
  • Want to help widen the community table and provide a future where a vibrant local food economy helps support a culture of culinary in Charlotte?
  • Would you like to share recipes and food pics with a connected group that appreciate your appetite for farmers market finds,  'clean' food and locally produced artisan products and beverages? 
  • Like the idea of joining this food loving community at a Monthly Member Meet Up where we head to a different business, restaurant or farm to have a sip and nibble of the season and learn about the people behind the curtain in the local food movement?
  • Would you enjoy reading a newsletter that connects you to people and places in our local food community?
  • Would you like a discounted ticket to the PCG Annual Food & Beverage Symposium?

Less than 100 memberships remain!


Your TASTEMAKERS membership will provide vital support for farmers, student scholarships, internships and ongoing development for PCG Professional and Developing Members.

Your support ensures the preservation of Piedmont flavors! Without your support for local farms and the independent restaurants and businesses that support them, we will continue to lose plant and animal genetics as well as the awesome flavors that can only be found here in our region!
