The Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance (OCAPICA), along with SOCO in Costa Mesa, presents the 1st Annual "Tastemakers of Orange County!" This culinary event celebrates the Asian and Pacific Islander community, culture, and heritage and gives guests the opportunity to taste and indulge in Asian and Pacific Island-inspired cuisines and beverages from distinguished chefs throughout Orange County. The celebration at SOCO in Costa Mesa will include food tastings, fun entertainment, and a silent auction all hosted at the SOCO and The OC Mix Farm Stands, and at Surfas Culinary District.
