Children Make Delicious Chocolate Eggs Alongside the Masters
 
Macau, March 23, 2016 – Wynn Macau is proud of its long term collaboration with local charitable association Tung Sin Tong. This time, Primary Four school students from Tung Sin Tong Middle School were invited to the property to learn how to make delicious chocolate eggs from our award winning chefs, who were more than willing to pass down their knowledge and inspire the children. The initiative was brought to life by Wynn’s Volunteer Team, who guided the young children throughout the day, helping them into their new-found aprons and chef hats.

Two groups, totaling nearly 60 excited youngsters, got to be junior master chefs for a day at Wynn Macau’s F&B academy. The space is dedicated to the teaching of the culinary arts and skills and is located inside the hotel, the first of its kind in the city to help further cultivate local talents. The talented and skillful junior chefs created not only delicious but also beautifully decorated chocolate eggs, with the help of their senior hosts.
 
The event, led by Chef Yoann Mathy - Executive Pastry Chef of Wynn Macau, Christophe Devoille - Executive Pastry Chef of Wynn Palace and Chef Kwan Kai Leong - Pastry Chef of Wynn Palace, was a success. Lei Fu Veng, who grew up in the city, is the Pastry Chef of Wynn Macau and was one of the hosts. He was happy to share his expertise with the young ones, passing his knowledge to the next generation of Macau residents, who were all eager listeners. The Chef has participated in numerous international competitions and has become a true “Chocolate Master”. He noted, “When I was young, we seldom had these opportunities in Macau. I had to go abroad and study in France. I am very proud to share my skills and art with local children in the hope of making it easier for them to develop their passions in the future.”
 
By the end of the two sessions, the skillfully decorated chocolate eggs could be seen in the hands of their proud owners, who gained a whole new appreciation for the precise art of chocolate making.
