Masters Of Taste

In Buzz, Food & Drink by Sam


This past Sunday, a new premier food festival made its debut. Masters Of Taste proved that when it comes to luxury food festivals it means business. With so many chain restaurants on every street corner of the city, the festival provided an oasis of LA’s finest. A delicious oasis, if I may add.


Masters Of Taste took place at the Rose Bowl. Not just at the iconic stadium though, literally on the actual field. The perfect stage for the elite festival.
