MGM and well-respected French pastry master, Angelo Musa, will join hands to deliver a limited three-day CHOCOL’ART pop-up series at MGM.

With commitment to vitalizing Macau's gastronomic scene and solidifying the city’s position as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, MGM will inject excitement into the city by welcoming a globally respected French pastry master, Meilleur Ouvrier de France (M.O.F.) Angelo Musa to Macau for the first time, to deliver a limited three-day CHOCOL’ART pop-up series at MGM COTAI from March 7 to 9. The series encompasses demo sessions for local pastry aficionados-entrepreneurs, whisky-pairing session, exclusive afternoon tea set, award-winning pastry, as well as the highlight of a six-hands dinner with award-winning chefs at MGM, which epitomizes innovation and East-Meets-West culture.


Being crowned with the most prestigious titles, including the World Pastry Cup (Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie) in 2003 and the coveted title of Craftsman of France (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) in 2007, MOF Angelo Musa is an avant-garde pastry master and author who loves to pervade creativity to reveal a synergy of ingredients, textures and unique flavors in his creations, all executed in the pursuit of perfection. In 2019, with over three decades of industry experience, he was being named as the Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters (Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres) by the French Minister of Culture for his contribution to the industry.


Throughout the series in Macau, MOF Musa brings along chocolate ingredients from Chocolaterie de l’Opera, a French chocolate expert with nearly 90 years of experience, to Macau for the showcase.


CHOCOL’ART · Six-hands Degustation Dinner

On the night of March 8, MOF Musa will be joined by Executive Sous Chef Homan Tsui of Black Pearl One-Diamond Restaurant Imperial Court, and Chef de Cuisine Sihui Pan of contemporary dining hot spot Aji. The trio will present a one-night-only dining experience that features an unconventional cacao-inspired menu, curated to exemplify the intriguing blend of East-Meets-West flavors and respective culinary essence. The 8-course menu will highlight seven types of single-origin chocolate that reveals the true flavor of cocoa beans and harmonious blend of refined artistry. Bringing with the expertise of Lingnan cuisine, Chef Homan will recreate classic Lingnan dishes such as Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek with 20-years aged tangerine peel, Pan-fried Scallop with XO Sauce and more with a fine twist of cacao added to strike an interesting balance on the palate. Meanwhile, the scrumptious cold plates from Chef Pan are perfectly complemented by a velvety surprise from a specially selected white chocolate. The menu will be wrapped up with two chocolate desserts from Chef Musa for perfect ending. The six-hands dinner is priced at MOP 1,888* per person and MOP 2,488* per person with wine pairing.


CHOCOL’ART · Masterpiece Afternoon Tea and Pastries

Equally enticing is Chef Musa’s special afternoon tea set, featuring six different types of sweets and five savory canapes crafted by chocolate as the core ingredient. Chef Musa’s award-winning pastry and tea set will be available at Anytime from March 9 until April 30, priced from MOP 68* for the pastry and MOP 888* for an afternoon tea experience for two guests.
