This story for the SCMP was a joy to put together as it includes all my favourite things – food, history and culture. You can read the piece here.
Macanese cuisine has so many similarities to Singapore’s Eurasian food, along with Peranakan food, thanks to the bustling trade routes and influences from Portugal and its colonies from the 14th century onwards.
I spoke to many key figures in the Macanese community, cooks, chefs and historians and were invited to many homecooked meals to discover the richness and complexities of Macanese cuisine.culture, Food, gastronomy, history, macanese food, macao, Macau, UNESCO creative city
