Sofia Paiva, a local born Macanese, will be attending the event as guest host, assisting Chef Antonio to cook his signature dish which will be served to the general public.

Born in a Macanese family, Sofia is bonded with Portuguese and Macanese cuisine which is commonly cooked at home with her family. As a local, she strives to sustain the legacy of Portuguese and Macanese dining culture in Macau – a UNESCO creative city of gastronomy.

In this culinary showcase, Sofia will be able to discover the secret recipes of Chef Antonio who will share his culinary skills and cooking philosophies to everyone in a public outdoor area outside his restaurant, allowing the audience to enjoy the authenticity and essence of Portuguese cuisine.   During the cooking demonstration, she will also be able to identify the difference between Antonio’s dish and her family’s dish in terms of ingredients, recipes and flavour!
