SINGAPORE, August 2017 – Paying tribute to Singapore’s rich history as a sleepy fishing village and port for spice trade, Summer Palace Dim Sum Chef Leong Kwok Sing welcomes the annual Mid-Autumn Festival with an exquisite mooncake collection of perennial favourites and two new spiced snow skin variants: Pineapple Pink Peppercorn and Cinnamon Red Bean with Spiced Wine.
This year’s theme of “Mid-Autumn Flavours” (中秋风味) is showcased in yet another unique carry-and-go mooncake box design. A structured box made out of premium fine-grained pine wood, the box is a creative interpretation of a spice carrier, with scenes of old Singapore intricately etched in an illustration that reminisces the spice trade commerce on the Singapore River in the 1800s. Red and neutral wood shades perfectly complement for a most elegant look; a statement piece for a Mid-Autumn gift to family, friends and business partners.
Mooncakes will be encased in gold-tinted tins which can be reused as airtight spice containers; giving an innovative touch to this assembly of a reusable and multi-purpose spice box that will be a fine adornment for kitchens at home.
Inspired by Singapore's rich history as entrepôt for spice trade in the early 1800s, guests will delight in the new mini snow skin mooncake introductions that are filled with delectably smooth and fragrant lotus seed paste centre, perfectly infused with distinct hints of spices for an Asian piquancy.
Pineapple and Pink Peppercorn delivers sweet and sharp notes that will excite the senses. Bite into an unconventional but stand-out powder soft chilli-infused skin that hits all the right notes to awaken the palate. Relish a delicate tangy pineapple paste and the beautiful textures of dried pineapple, wrapped over a peppery pink peppercorn chocolate pearl core. On the other hand, Chef's Cinnamon Red Bean with Spiced Wine snow skin mooncake brings about more mellow tastes with its slightly sweet and earthy composition; a delightful blend of red bean paste filling and spiced wine ganache wrapped in a soft cinnamon spice-infused snow skin.
Not to be missed as well are signature snow skin selections –Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds, fragrant Green Tea with Melon Seeds, the classic White Lotus Paste with Yolk and Melon Seeds and the bestseller, Durian; known for its deliciously creamy bittersweet combination of fresh Mao Shan Wang and D24 durian meat.
Indulge, too, in well-loved baked classics such as the Parma Ham and Pork Floss with Assorted Nuts, which features a premium 24-month cured Parma Ham and generous servings of assorted nuts, white sesame and winter melon, balanced with subtle pork floss and orange peel. Other baked highlights include White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk and Melon Seeds, White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and Melon Seeds and White Lotus Paste with Melon Seeds.
For those looking to indulge, Chef’s Bird’s Nest with Custard promises to please with its decadent custard centre and slivers of premium bird’s nest.
Home to a collection of handpicked aromatic and specialty Chinese teas, Summer Palace offers delightful blends for the perfect pairing. Sip on Dragon Pearl, hand-scented with fresh flowers, promising a wonderfully sweet and delicate floral scent balanced with the taste of fresh green tea. Also on the menu is the High Mountain Oolong which is smooth, crisp and light, bringing an ideal balance to the sweetness of the mooncakes. Other tea selections include Lion’s Peak Dragon Well, for a smooth, pleasant and delicate finish; and the classic Pu’er, among others.
