Set to be a highlight of Taste of Macao, a grand carnival-style launch will showcase some of the cuisine's most-loved dishes. Adding to the atmosphere of it all, there'll also be traditional Chinese lion dance and drum performances throughout the event, plus Chinese calligraphy classes and virtual racing on a Macao Grand Prix simulator.
