MASTERS OF TASTE RETURNS FOR YEAR 5 ON APRIL 3, 2022
I have to say that I was very disappointed at the cancellation of last year’s Masters of Taste food fest due to the pandemic, but I am happy to announce that the Fifth Annual Masters of Taste, L.A.’s premier outdoor, luxury food and beverage festival, will return on Sunday, April 3 on the field of the iconic Pasadena Rose Bowl.
The festival will take place from 3pm to 7pm with100% of the proceeds going directly to benefit Union Station Homeless Services.
Chef Vanda Asapahu will serve as Host Chef of Masters of Taste 2022, which also happens to mark the Fifth Anniversary of this celebrated event, which had to be canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. Chef Vanda Asapahu is the chef and owner of Ayara Thai Cuisine and she has participated since the festival’s inception in April 2016.
"I have had the pleasure of participating in Masters of Taste since its inaugural year,” Asapahu stated. “As a proud UCLA alum, I’d give anything for the opportunity to cook, eat and dance on the field of the Rose Bowl. The most amazing thing about Masters of Taste is that one hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to benefit Union Station Homeless Services and not many food festivals can say that. Union Station Homeless Services is committed to ending homelessness in Los Angeles."
Masters of Taste 2019 was a sold-out event that attracted over 3,000 guests and garnered media attention all throughout Southern California and beyond. The fifth annual Masters of Taste 2022 is also expected to bring over 3,000 food and beverage enthusiasts together for one afternoon to celebrate this exhilarating festival, which will include the finest fare from over 100 Culinary Masters and restaurants, delectable sweets prepared by L.A.’s top Sweet Masters, top Beverage Masters who will be featuring signature handcrafted cocktail tastings from over 25 spirit brands and bars, a premier 50-Yard-Line Cocktail Bar featuring top Mixologists from four of L.A.’s most distinguished drinking destinations, select wineries, local craft breweries, cold-pressed juices, cold brew coffee, live entertainment and much, much more.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from Masters of Taste 2022 will directly benefit Union Station Homeless Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping men, women and children experiencing homelessness, rebuild their lives. Union Station is part of a premier group of human services agencies in L.A. County that are leading the way to end homelessness in our community. Union Station offers an array of services. including street outreach, meals, shelter, housing, case management and career development. In the last four years Masters of Taste has raised over $2 Million in support of Union Station’s life-saving programs.
