MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL 2018
EXQUISITE MID-AUTUMN MOONCAKE INDULGENCES
This Mid-Autumn, Yan Ting welcomes the season with a host of exceptionally handcrafted snow skin and baked mooncakes. Alongside a selection of outstanding baked mooncakes that are a perennial favourite among connoisseurs of traditional flavours, this year’s variety of four new snow skin mooncakes were born from an exclusive collaboration with award-winning pâtissier Melissa Chou.
Raised in San Francisco, Chef Melissa Chou is the current pastry chef at the one Michelin-starred Bay Area establishment Mister Jiu’s. Recognised as one of San Francisco’s top pastry chefs, Chef Chou lent her culinary expertise and creative input to the creation of this year’s snow skin mooncakes, working closely with Yan Ting’s pastry and dim sum chef Vanness Chai. These resulting mooncakes are an embodiment of harmony and balance, and a celebration of masterfully combined flavours and textures.
EXCEPTIONAL SNOW SKIN MOONCAKES
Making its debut is the Black Sesame Paste with Salted Peanut Truffle Snow Skin Mooncake ($78.00+ per box of 8). Wrapped in a black sesame skin accentuated with hints of gold, this mooncake features a rich and smooth black sesame paste enveloping a luscious salted peanut truffle, offering a tantalising blend of sweet and savoury.
Gourmands seeking a taste of the traditional in snow skin form will also enjoy the Red Date and Wolfberry Paste with Almond Flakes Snow Skin Mooncake ($76.00+ per box of 8). Long known for their wide array of health benefits, red dates and wolfberries have been combined to form a delectable paste that is perfectly complemented by almond flakes, and is wrapped in a blushing pink snow skin.
Yet another new creation is the Jasmine Tea Paste with Salted Egg Yolk and Melon Seeds Snow Skin Mooncake
($76.00+ per box of 8). Encased in a white snow skin, this creation is a harmonious mélange of textures and flavours, the mild sweetness of the jasmine tea paste pairing wonderfully with the richness of the salted egg yolk. Melon seeds complete the mooncake, adding a hint of earthiness and a wonderful crunch.
Another enticing introduction is the Custard with Macadamia Nuts Snow Skin Mooncake ($76.00+ per box of 8), which celebrates custard, a mainstay in both Eastern and Western pastries and desserts. Here, the rich custard paste is married with delightfully subtle macadamia nuts.
Finally, a returning favourite is the Pure ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Durian Snow Skin Mooncake ($118.00+ per box of 8), which features rich luscious chunks of the premium-grade majestic tropical fruit, exuding robust flavours and alluring aromas.
Assorted Snow Skin Mooncake ($78.00+ per box of 8, excluding Pure Mao Shan Wang’ Durian Snow Skin Mooncake) is also available for the mooncake lovers.
