Taipa Village Macau Launches Summer Culinary Programme Chef Constellation

24 Jun Taipa Village Macau Launches Summer Culinary Programme Chef Constellation

Taipa Village Destination Limited is thrilled to present a dynamic summer culinary programme entitled “Chef Constellation”, hosted by award-winning chefs from the area who will showcase their culinary skills and share their cooking philosophies in a series of exclusive cooking classes and demonstrations. Specially crafted summer menus will also be available.

Taipa Village is rapidly emerging as one of the leading gastronomic destinations in Macau, a city recently designated a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and one of only three cities in China to be conferred this prestigious title.

The Chef Constellation programme’s signature restaurants include:


La Famiglia, headed up by Chef Florita Alves, a Macanese culinary ambassador whose driving passion is to sustain the legacy of Macanese cuisine in the city’s gastronomic scene;


Michelin-recommended António, helmed by Executive Chef António Coelho with Head Chef Pedro do Carmo, offering inspiring and authentic Portuguese cuisine;


Tapas de Portugal, a Portuguese tapas restaurant that extends Chef António’s diverse and flavourful menu, supported by Head Chef Ricardo Aves; and


Bella Taipa, boasting modern Italian cuisine mastered by Executive Chef Jonathan Dominguez, who brings with him more than a decade of culinary experience in the gastronomic wonderland of Tuscany.


“We are delighted to offer this unique culinary experience in the epicurean paradise of Taipa Village,” says Pamela Chan, Head of Marketing at Taipa Village Destination Limited. “We trust this fun-filled and engaging chef programme will further complement Macau’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and sustain the legacy of local and international cuisine in Macau’s dining scene.”


The Chef Constellation programme will run for the months of July and August and has been curated specially to boost engagement between the general public and Taipa Village’s celebrated chefs.
