Sheraton Manila Bay hosted an evening of art and gastronomy with a one-night-only pairing event entitled “Whisky and Chocolate Experience” on July 7, 2022 held at the recently launched &More by Sheraton and Unspoken Bar. Epicurean diners, media, and key influencers delight in the culinary marriage of Scottish whiskeys from Chivas Regal and delish pastries baked by our seasoned culinary team using proudly-local Auro Chocolate in time for the celebration of World Chocolate Day.
The curated pairing and tasting notes led by sommelier Chino Garcia of Chivas Regal include White Chocolate Madeleine (made with Auro 32% White Chocolate) and Mango Tart (made with Auro cocoa powder) paired with Chivas Regal 13 Sherry Cask; Peanut Chocolate Caramel Lollipop (made with Auro Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Nibs) and Espresso Dark Chocolate Truffle (made with Auro Dark Chocolate) paired with Chivas Regal 18 years; and Chocolate French Macarons and Bailey’s Irish Chocolate Mousse (both made with Auro 64% Dark Chocolate) paired with Chivas Regal 12 years.
The exquisite pairing were complemented by a visually delightful exhibition of select artworks of National Artist Fernando Amorsolo made of LEGO™ brick mosaic. On display at the hotel main lobby starting 7 July 2022 are Lego rendition of Amorsolo’s Early Traders (1948), Bayanihan (1959), and Dalagang Bukid (1958). Among those seen enjoying the event are members of the Amorsolo family led by Fernando “Nandy” Lazo, Fernando Amorsolo’s grandson and executive director of the Amorsolo Foundation and Leslie Araujo, president and LAN (Lego Ambassador Network) ambassador of Pinoy LUG (Lego User Group). The exhibit is in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the proclamation of Fernando C. Amorsolo as the first national artist of the Philippines in visual art.
“Since the launching of &More and Unspoken Bar we have been inspired to create events that is not just focus on satisfying our senses with good food and beverage experience, welcoming ambience, live entertainment, and unparalleled service but at the same time with a purpose.” said Juvy Agudon, the hotel’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
Commemorative fine art prints of Project AMORsolo are for sale at Sheraton Manila Bay from July 7 to 21, 2022 for only Php 20,000 per framed prints with Certificate of Authentication. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the commemorative prints will be donated to San Lorenzo Ruiz Home for the Elderly and Bahay Tuluyan, a non-profit organization for children’s welfare.
On hand to welcome guests and to show them around the exhibit were hotel General Manager Richard Masselin, Director of Sales and Marketing Juvy Agudon and her team, Director of Room Crystal Monzones, Director of Finance Jennifer Labita, Director of Human Resources Edna Al Sharhan, Director of Engineering Nilo De Ramos, Executive Chef Plaridelio Adora, Marketing Communications Manager Stephanie Cabrejas, and Food and Beverage Manager Karla Delos Reyes.
