About An Evening in Macau
A former Portuguese state with an ever-present historical identity, Macau was the first and last European colony in China. Today, gambling revenue in Macau has made it the world’s top casino market. The senior class at The Culinary Institute of America is creating an evening of High Chinese/Portuguese cuisine coupled with dancing and cocktails inspired by the exotic era of 1930s Macau, an era that defines the culture that spawned the uniqueness it knows today. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvre, and a silent auction to benefit the Anderson Center for Autism and two scholarship funds in memory of Chefs Wayne Almquist and Jim Heywood. Following the reception will be a four-course meal with paired wines and a 20-piece orchestra. Come ‘dressed to the nines’ for an elegant evening of Macanese decadence.
