The Mission Chinese Food and Mission Cantina chef has joined Mario Batali and the Northside Media Group, which publishes Brooklyn Magazine, on the second annual Taste Talks event. As curator, Danny Bowien has enlisted industry folks like Brooks Headley and Andy Ricker for events, with writers and editors such as Peter Meehan, Sam Sifton, and Adam Rapoport from the media side. Panels, quasi-secret dinners, and a World's Fair Pavilion-esque free component called the Future Food Expo round it all out. More information can be found here, and true to his multitasking self, the fall event is not the only thing Bowien's got in the works: His ongoing Mission Chinese Food pop-up in Brooklyn will branch out to Manhattan on Sundays at Mile End on Bond Street starting this weekend.
