All ticket sales and contributions will benefit the Arizona Restaurant Association Education Foundation. The foundation helps fund the implementation of a two-year culinary arts and restaurant management curriculum in state high schools.

“This is my second year participating in this event and I’m excited to be a part of it again,” said Movassaghi. “It’s important for young people to gain exposure to culinary arts careers at a young age, and the Arizona Restaurant Association program helps them explore these opportunities.”

The Taste of Elegance takes place on Monday, January 25 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the East Valley Institute of Technology (1601 West Main Street in Mesa). Tickets are $15 per person and can be reserved ahead of time.

Taste of Elegance culinary competitions began in 1989 as a way to showcase culinary professionalism in creativity of cooking pork. The first place winner of the competition will receive a $1,000 prize and a trophy, as well as earn the opportunity to attend the “Pork Summit” in spring 2016.
