A stroll down East Third Street in South Bethlehem may lead you to The Taste Smokers: a new upgraded street-food culinary experience. At The Taste Smokers, customers can enjoy soul food like brisket, mac and cheese and ribs, while immersing themselves in a cultural and artistic experience.

Bringing Chicago-style barbecue to Lehigh, The Taste Smokers partnered with Lehigh University Art Galleries for the Taste of Art event, held virtually on Feb. 17.

Through the program, participants saw art from LUAG’s permanent collection and exhibition, while eating the food pairings from the South Bethlehem restaurant. Prior to the event, participants were able to pick up a kit containing art and cooking materials at LUAG’s main gallery or​ The Taste Smokers.

Stacie Brennan, curator of education for LUAG, said the Taste of Art events are sponsored through a federal grant aimed at supporting local businesses on the South Side.
