Unlocking your palate with “Hyper Specific Tasting Notes”

This morning, my coffee smelled like a Wendy’s crispy chicken sandwich and I couldn’t have been more pumped about it. Here’s why…


Two years ago, I interviewed wine Sommelier and professional badass, Leslee Miller who taught me a phrase – “Thinking and Drinking” – that turned my curiosity on overdrive about expanding my palate for tasting different food and drinks.


I realized that – for years – when trying to describe the smell or taste of something, I was actually asking myself “What SHOULD I be smelling and tasting?” instead of “What AM I smelling and tasting?”


So I came up with a game I call “Hyper Specific Tasting Notes.” My friends and I do it all the time now and now, a couple years later, it’s  changed the way I eat and drink.
