Disney Advertising has teamed up with Pepsi for a new cooking series called “Talking Sabor”, which sees celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez, who has previously starred in “Chopped,” “Iron Chef America” and “MasterChef”,  travelling to Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and New York to celebrate Latin restaurants with authentic flavours. 

The series will feature special guests, including Justin Quiles, Olympic boxer Marlen Esparza, Zabdiel de Jesús, Amara la Negra, Adriana Fonseca, Jesús Trejo, chef Wes Avila and Cyn Santana.

John Campbell, senior vice president of entertainment and streaming solutions at Disney Advertising, said in a statement to Variety:

“At Disney, we are continuously pushing for solutions that connect our audiences to content and experiences that resonate in meaningful and authentic ways. Our collaboration with Pepsi and Cocina is an incredible example of how our brands are able to deliver the celebration and how we can jointly influence culture at scale. Our individual strengths and missions to empower communities are greatly enhanced when we come together, highlighting the important power and impact of collaboration.”

Sarah North, chief creative officer of Mecenas, added:

“’Talking Sabor’ is to a large degree the byproduct of two highly influential companies like Pepsi and Disney which are heavily invested in celebrating the richness of Latino culture and its profound impact in U.S. culture and, by extension, representing a pivotal moment and a unique chance for Mecenas to shine. Chef Aarón brings his unmatched talent and passion to the series, creating a space where food becomes a bridge between cultures.”

Esperanza Teasdale, vice president and general manager of the Hispanic business unit at PepsiCo Beverages North America added:

“As one of the newest and largest initiatives within our Mejor con Pepsi brand campaign, we couldn’t have asked for better partners to bring ‘Talking Sabor’ to life.  Not only does the series shine a beautiful light on the diversity of Hispanic cuisine and culture, it also encourages discovery of some of the most loved Hispanic-owned restaurants in cities across the U.S.”

All of the episodes of “Talking Sabor” will be released on Hulu (and likely also on Hulu On Disney+) on April 24th 2024.
