Marking the 12th anniversary of the annual Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau, Melco Resorts & Entertainment present a gala dinner with a tribute to sustainability on December 17 at City of Dreams, Macau. It is an evening inspired by the emerging culinary movement of adopting sustainable practices in the kitchen, a mantra that is championed by esteemed Michelin-starred kitchens around the world. For one night only, six internationally renowned culinary masters from two and three-Michelin-starred restaurants around the globe and a celebrated pâtissier join hands to craft a dining experience like no other for hundreds of gourmet aficionados and industry giants alike.
Melco brings the glamorous gastronomic journey for the fourth consecutive year to Macau, a UNESCO-designated “Creative City of Gastronomy”. The Official Title Partner of the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020, Melco celebrates top-class hospitality and gourmet dining where guests will be indulged in a seven-course wine-pairing dinner, prepared by culinary geniuses from around the world. In addition to Melco’s’ own superstar chefs, Kelvin Au Yeung of three-Michelin-starred Jade Dragon, Fabrice Vulin of two-Michelin-starred The Tasting Room and Alain Ducasse of two-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse at Morpheus, the event features visiting culinary masters Kunio Tokuoka (Kitcho Arashiyama Honten, three Michelin stars), Alex Atala (D.O.M., São Paulo, Brazil; two Michelin stars) and also Lau Yiu Fai (Yan Toh Heen, Hong Kong; two Michelin stars). The evening concludes with sensational French creations by celebrated pâtissier Pierre Hermé.
An earth-shaking performance by Drum Tao unveils the night’s entertainment, an award-winning Japanese drum and dance ensemble that re-writes the story of traditional Japanese drum with Korean, Maori and Indonesian influences. This is followed by a special musical performance by regional pop singer Kit Chan. Accompanying the evening’s exquisite menu is a selection of highly scored Robert Parker-rated wines and champagne, for guests to enjoy.
This year’s gala dinner: Sustainability through Motion, is a celebration embracing sustainability as a continuous modernization of fine dining culture. As part of a global effort, modern culinary trends have shifted towards ensuring sustainability as a key factor in food choices that are made. From the choice of ingredients and suppliers to ensuring fair trade and consumer health, the modern chef’s responsibilities go beyond the traditional criteria of technique, taste, and creativity, including the process that contributes to the collective effort to preserve our planet.
To continue this journey, Melco has made environmentally conscious choices to minimize the gala’s impact on the environment, from ingredient vendors to venue decor. Key ingredients of the unique seven-course menu are sustainably sourced, natural rice husk trays are used to serve pre-gala dinner canapés and, as for decoration, bamboo has been sourced within City of Dreams Macau and replanted after the event, while table centerpieces of cut grass and flower pots will also be replanted within the resort.
