Every year The All-Star Chef Classic takes over the deck of L.A. Live for a long weekend of feasting and celebrating. Now in its 6th year, the Chef Classic will take place from Wednesday, October 2, 2019 through Sunday October 6, 2019. The weekend features two distinct types of events. The first is a traditional strolling event, where you walk from booth to booth sampling Chef’s dishes. Masters Dinners are specific to the All-Stars event. They created a “Restaurant Stadium™” with seating around a central stage where the chefs demo the preparation of dishes that are then served to you at your seat. There are even tables at these fine dining experiences so you can eat without juggling plates.

There will be two strolling tasting events featuring some of LA’s best chefs working alongside talent from around the world, and four seated Chefs Masters Dinners.
