Championing the spirit of “craftsmanship”, MGM strives to promote Macau’s gastronomic culture and help nurturing future talents in the culinary industry for Macau, an UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. In November, MGM joined hands with post-secondary institutions in Macau as well as the Greater Bay Area to present the mastery of culinary to local students and young professionals in the field.
Culinary Exchange with Shunde to Celebrate Mastery of Cantonese Cuisine
Facilitating the sharing of knowledge between the region’s industry talents, the Macao Institute for Tourism Studies (IFTM), Shunde Polytechnic and MGM has co-organized the “MGM Talent Development Series – Cities of Gastronomy – Best of Macao and Shunde Culinary Arts Exchange” workshop. Several renowned chefs of Shunde Polytechnic, including two Cantonese cuisine masters Li Yongtai and Sun Yongkang, and dim sum master Zhong Yumei, were invited to be the guest speakers of the event. Being one of the most renowned chefs of Cantonese cuisine in the region, Li Yongtai shared his 50 years of industry experience and his insights on Cantonese cuisine with 150 MGM team members, teachers and students of IFTM and Escola Luso-Chinesa Técnico-Profissional (ELCTP), as well as other attendees. The event was concluded with a culinary demonstration, where the three masters showcased their exquisite Cantonese culinary skills to inspire MGM’s culinary team members and students of ELCTP.
MGM Pastry Chef Shares Industry Expertise with MUST Students
On the other hand, MGM once again partnered with the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management of Macau University of Science and Technology (M.U.S.T.) to organize another culinary demonstration workshop. Neo Ng, Pastry Chef of MGM COTAI, was invited to showcase his expertise in chocolate-making to the bachelor students of M.U.S.T. majoring in Food & Beverage Management. Every academic year, both MGM and M.U.S.T. would invite renowned and established chefs of the industry to host workshops for its students. Marking the fourth edition of the series, both parties hope to enable students to better understand the professional techniques, and at the same time grasping the industry trend ahead to prepare them for their career development.
