Taste for a Cure

A Culinary Journey through Asia


Celebrating its 24th year, the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s signature event, Taste for a Cure will be held on Friday, April 26 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. During this special evening, we will present our 2019 Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award.

Taste for a Cure unites the entertainment and epicurean communities and consistently ranks among the top ten culinary events in Southern California. This year’s theme is "A Culinary Journey through Asia," and will feature tastings from some of Asia's most exciting Vintners, wineries and distillers, as well as a sumptuous array of dishes from some of Los Angeles’ top Asian and Asian-influenced chefs and restaurants, all while raising valuable funds for leading-edge cancer research at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC).
