Sweet treats and a taste of tradition are what we are lusting for this season.
Xin Cuisine’s Assorted Nuts with French Raisins baked mooncake
Mooncakes are like gourmet gems— they come in an array of jewel tones, have exotic flavours like momordica and matcha, and are housed in gilded boxes so pretty, they are works of art in themselves. Snowskin beauties remain the most interpreted trend this mid-autumn season: At SHANG PALACE in Shangri-La Singapore, the Honey Chocolate collection sees delicate chocolate shells filled with creamy mousse in flavours like salted toffee or roasted Sicilian pistachio enveloping an aromatic Leatherwood Honey centre; REGENT HOTEL SINGAPORE has added a Singaporean spin with a Chendol with White Chocolate version, which masquerades as a giant piece of jade with a smooth white and green outer layer. RAFFLES HOTEL SINGAPORE rises to the occasion with a Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Feuilletine, where you get decadent praline, velvety peanut butter and the crunchy goodness of crisp wafer all in one bite. For moonlight reunions with friends, opt for GOODWOOD PARK’s tropical-style Gin Pineapple snowskin creations that pack a happy punch. If that’s too modern for your liking, opt for the golden baked variety at HOLIDAY INN ATRIUM’s Xin Cuisine, where the newest addition comes with wholesome nuts and French raisins. TWG TEA expands its traditional selection with three new flavours, with crowd favourite Midnight—a deliciously decadent version encased in a jet-black crust with Blue Lotus Tea-infused white lotus paste and a heart of smooth almond paste, crunchy blackcurrant and cranberries. As for purists, take comfort at CONRAD CENTENNIAL SINGAPORE, where an antique gold-esque box of traditional baked mooncakes with single yolk in white lotus paste awaits.
