Barb Stuckey is known as a taste, food trend, innovation, consumer insights, and product development expert. As part of her role in the innovation projects that make up her daily job, she is required to taste food and figure out how to make it better. After more than two decades doing this, she’s honed her tasting skills and ability to help others make food taste better. Barb has shared this insight with the world in 2012 when her book Taste What You’re Missing was published.

Barb was instrumental in helping The San Francisco Cooking School integrate the science of taste into their curriculum, where she now teaches the Fundamentals of Taste to each entering class. She also holds a seat on the advisory board of the Plant Based Foods Association.

Join Barb to understand what consumers are looking for in the food industry when it comes to flavor, trends, and innovation.
