Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 is celebrating French cuisine with the Good France 2019 dining experience! From March 19 to 23, Privé is serving an all things French menu. Renowned for its elegance and exquisiteness, “Gastronomic Meal of the French” is a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage that has prompted French chef Alain Ducasse and the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to launch Good France in 2015.
The “Good France” menu starts with hot goat cheese salad, which is prepared with cherry tomatoes and honey balsamic sauce, and French cold cut platter, which offers an assortment of sausages and coppa, jesus, and Bayonne ham. Next up is bouillabaisse fish soup–a Provençal specialty that combines the rich flavours of Bouillabaisse with prawns, scallops, and blue mussels. The main course is the crispy yet tender salmon fillet, perfectly complemented by truffle mashed potatoes. To finish off the meal, guests are treated to the chocolatey and gluten-free pave chocolate cake.
When: March 19–23, 2019
How much: “Good France” set menu – MOP $588 per person

The first exhibition of AFA this year has opened! This exhibition is the first solo exhibition for Crystal W. M. Chan after she completed her degree in School of Visual Arts. As an Asian, female artist, she drew attention with her work while studying at art school in New York. In 2017 she won the Will Barnet Award issued by the New York National Club and held two solo exhibitions in New York in 2018.
Leaving Macau to go to New York, through the four years of studying and hard work, Crystal has blurred the boundaries of the shapes she creates. It is her way of breaking through limitations. The creation of her works are more matured, though the appearance of her paintings is somehow ambiguous but the emotional power of her work has revealed itself in clarity during this process of artistic pursuit. Alice Kok is the curator for this exhibition.
When: February 27, 2019–April 2, 2019
Where: Macau Art Garden, 265 Avenida do Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues, Macau
How much: Free entrance
