About 100 Southern California food and beverage vendors tackled this weekend’s Masters of Taste on the Rose Bowl football field in Pasadena, which included a sit-down Wolfgang Puck Experience and cocktail bar at the 50-yard line.
All proceeds from the sold-out event benefit Union Station Homeless Services, a nonprofit organization committed to helping homeless men, women and children rebuild their lives by providing services like street outreach, meals, shelter, housing, case management and career development.
Chef Michael Hung from Faith and Flower was this year’s first-time Masters of Taste Host Chef in a food and drink paradise that included a massive seafood gumbo pot from Preux & Proper; pork jerky with spiced honey and jaew sauce from Santa Barbara’s hottest new spot, Tyger Tyger; and dramatic nitro artisan handmade ice cream demos from Supercool Creamery.
The VIP Wolfgang Puck Test Kitchen Experience took place in its own exclusive island on the field. Cambodian steak tartare, duck confit and spiced yogurt in a radish “pita,” monkfish mosaic with shelled beans and buttermilk caviar sauce were paired with San Simeon wines.
