Pedro Pico (a.k.a. Teresa Al Dente) – Founder, Drag Taste

with Allison K. Summers

Pedro Pico is both an inspiring businessman and gem of a woman. For this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, we head to Lisbon, Portugal and meet Pedro, whose motto is ‘My secret to get things done is getting started’.  

Pedro is a creative adventurer who has built a business out of his love affair with food. He produced his own cooking show on YouTube which led to founding Tasty Studio, a company specializing in branded food and beverage media content. He has also hosted hundreds of home-cooked dinners for people from around the world all of which has led to his latest business venture: Drag Taste.  

Featured by Airbnb as one of the top experiences in the world, Pedro developed Drag Taste with spouse Nikolay (a.k.a. Irina Ganache). They have an amazing team of the best drag queens from all over the world and, under a chandelier of red high heels, they host events such as "Drag-up Cooking Class", where they transform every guest in drag and host a Portuguese cooking class and event. Not to be side tracked by COVID, the team converted the event experiences to virtual and are now the top online Airbnb Experience with ‘Sangria and Secrets with Drag Queens’, where they actually dramatically increased their revenue beyond the ability of the restaurant. Next up? Opening Drag Taste locations worldwide. ​
