1. You get to learn more about the poison of your choice

This year’s Epicurean Market sees the introduction of the Sands Signature Series,  a series of premium master classes where you can learn more about wines and spirits by experts in business. A fan of Australian and New Zealand wines? Then sign up for Whistlestop Terroir of Australia, which will let you find out more about wines from these regions from winemakers themselves. If you prefer Italian wines, then go for the Treasures of Italy master class, where you’ll get to taste wines from Italy’s most famous appellations, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti Classico.

Besides wine, find out more about rare and in-demand aged Japanese whiskies from Suntory, Hanyu and Chichibu Distilleries at Experiencing Rare Japanese Age – Statement Whiskey.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, an award-winning American restaurant, might only be opening at MBS early next year, but at the Epicurean Market, you’ll get to try dishes such as Llewellyn’s Fried Chicken, as well as the Watermelon and and Waffles before the restaurant makes its debut. You also don’t have to make your way to Macau to sample dishes from The Venetian’s top restaurants, North and Golden Peacock. North will be serving up dishes inspired by the Dongbei and Sichuan regions of China, including Poached Farm Chicken and Shrimp in Chinese Yellow Wine, while Golden Peacock will offer refined Indian fare, such as Jhinga Avocado Raj Chaat.

Of course, you’ll also be able to dig into fare currently available at MBS’ stellar line-up of celebrity chef restaurants. Waku Ghin‘s signature dishes, many of which are featured in the restaurant’s 10-course degustation experience – such as the Marinated Botan Shrimp with Uni and Caviar – will be available during Epicurean Market.
