On May 6th, 2018, the much-aniticipated Masters of Taste retuns for a third straight year to our very own Rose Bowl Stadium! Started by Union Station Homeless Services in 2016 to generate the additional funds required to power their many worthy and much-needed programs, this event has drawn crowds of up to 2,500 food lovers and has already raised nealy $1,000,000 in just two years.
If you love gourmet treats, sweets, cocktails, the Rose Bowl, Pasadena, or anything that has to do with giving back, this event is definitely the Superbowl of what you're looking for. Having been to a number of very extravagant galas, we can honestly say that the Masters of Taste gives the most exclusive star-studded Hollywood industry party a run for its money.
Representing some of our favorite local establishments at the anticipated Masters of Taste 2018 are Chefs Claud Beltran of Bacchus Kitchen & Eatery and Claude & Co., Kimmy Tang of Bistro Mon Cheri, Calogero Drago of Celestino Ristorante, Mike Stern of Gus’s Barbecue, Tim Carey of Lost at Sea, Lee Hau Fu of Lunasia Dim Sum House, Tim Guiltinan of The Raymond, and Travis Limoge of Twohey’s.
