International Chef Showcase: 4 Hands featuring Helder Amaral of Aurora & Eric Räty of one-starred Arbor

Aurora at Altira Macau, Level 10

The MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau Dining Series reignites the region’s most anticipated chef collaboration series, the International Chef Showcase (ICS), with a line-up of unique multi-hands culinary collaborations for 2019. Following a successful six-hands event at Yí at City of Dreams’ Morpheus hotel in May, gourmets and wine aficionados will soon experience the combined forces of modern culinary stars in MICHELIN Plate Mediterranean restaurant Aurora at Altira Macau. The event will feature Aurora’s own chef Helder Amaral, and visiting chef Eric Räty of one-MICHELIN-starred Arbor Hong Kong.

Representing their respective restaurants, chefs Helder and Eric will work together in creative harmony to present cross-collaborative lunch and dinner menus occurring over two days from 28-29 June, paired with Robert Parker-rated wines with a minimum of 90 points each as curated by Aurora’s head sommelier. Chef Helder’s mastery of French-inspired Mediterranean flavors at Aurora meets chef Eric’s innovative approach within Arbor’s nature-rich concept, and guests will be able to savour the best of both worlds starting from MOP438+ per guest for lunch and MOP988+ for dinner on 28-29 June.

About The Series:
The International Chef Showcase brings top chefs to local restaurants so diners here get to experience some of the world’s best cuisines without having to travel. It is organised as part of the partnership between Robert Parker Wine Advocate and Michelin, and marries the most coveted wines with sumptuous food.

About Chef Helder Amaral

Chef Helder Amaral draws on his native Portuguese roots and classical French training to offer guests a signature taste of Aurora during the four-hands collaboration with chef Eric. Possessing a deep knowledge of Mediterranean ingredients that form the basis of Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French cuisines, chef Helder’s culinary career spans a number of world-renowned restaurants in Europe. He moved to Macau in 2012 to work at contemporary French fine-dining restaurant The Tasting Room at City of Dreams, which attained its first MICHELIN star in 2013 and second in 2016. As chef de cuisine of The MICHELIN Plate-awarded Aurora in Altira Macau, Helder serves simple and creative dishes, letting fresh ingredients shine.

At Aurora, guests can experience Mediterranean fine dining with a spectacular panoramic sea view. The experienced kitchen team craft a seasonally-evolving signature menu, where premium seafood ingredients play a key role.

About Chef Eric Räty:


Hailing from the pristine natural environment of Finland, chef de cuisine Eric Räty’s Nordic background shines through at the nature-rich concept of Arbor. His enchanting culinary style represents refined simplicity and vibrant innovation, combining French cooking techniques with Nordic-Japanese sensibilities. A true rising star in fine dining, chef Eric helms the Arbor kitchen with an impressive culinary repertoire under his belt, from four demanding years at two-MICHELIN-starred Chez Dominique to his valuable experience as a pastry chef at three-MICHELIN-starred Restaurant Aqua in The Ritz-Carlton Wolfsburg. In 2014, he became an understudy to chef Gray Kunz at Café Grey Deluxe in The Upper House, and has been incorporating Asian ingredients and flavors into his culinary craft ever since. Eric joined Arbor as Chef de Cuisine in early 2018, and only a few months after opening, earned the restaurant its first MICHELIN star.
