Celebrating the best of the best, Masters of Taste is back again at the Pasadena Rose Bowl and will again donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Union Rescue Homeless Services. This foodie event for good will bring you culinary masters, mixology treats, and a kickass DJ, and live music to keep things moving. Rain or shine, this year promises to deliver Los Angeles chefs and restaurants in a setting that champions what this great city has to offer, including its massive heart and devotion to the betterment of those in need. Hosted by Chef Michael Hung, whose culinary credentials range from James Beard to Michelin restaurants, the man behind the accoladed Downtown Los Angeles’ Faith & Flower.

“I have been a participant in Masters of Taste for the past two years, and it is spectacular! Cooking and serving people on the field of the Rose Bowl could be a once in a lifetime occasion, but I have been lucky enough to get to do it for the past two years, and this year, the honor to be able to formally host the event,” says Hung. “And, while the festivities are amazing, what is most impressive is that Masters of Taste donates 100 percent of proceeds from this event to Union Station Homeless Services each year. Homelessness deserves our attention, focused work, and finances, and Union Station Homeless Services and Masters of Taste are truly leaders in helping those who are in need.”

This year will feature 95 masters, including 45 master chefs, signature hand-crafted cocktails, beer, wine, and master mixologists. Masters of Taste has already raised $1.5 million to help the city’s homeless and this year plans to raise even more.
