Hua Ting restaurant unveils an array of autumnal treasures to celebrate Mid-Autumn reunions. Constantly challenging the boundaries of flavours and textures, celebrated Masterchef Lap Fai presents two novel snowskin creations that complement the top-selling traditional baked and signature snowskin selections, available from 5 August to 15 September.
This year, Hua Ting’s highly-coveted mooncakes are cossetted in leatherette gift boxes decked out in alluring vermillion and rose gold, and elegantly adorned with intricate Oriental motifs to present as impressive gift sets for business associates and loved ones.
Masterchef Lap Fai’s culinary virtuosity is evident in his refreshing rendition of two new mini snowskin creations: Blueberry with Vintage Hua Diao Wine (Low Sugar) and Salted Caramel with Hazelnut Crunch.
Setting a brilliant stage for innovative snowskin flavours is the Mini Blueberry with Vintage Hua Diao Wine (Low Sugar) 低糖迷你陈年花雕蓝莓 ($68 per box of 8). Cocooned within a lovely luscious purple, this dainty delight entices with the delicate balance of sweet and tartness of blueberries, infused with the heady perfume of vintage Hua Diao, leaving an alluring aftertaste that lingers with each bite. The fact that this is a low-sugar option makes for a perfect guilt-free indulgence.
Next, pique your palate’s interest with another exciting flavour destined to be a crowd-favourite this season. The Mini Salted Caramel with Hazelnut Crunch 咸香焦糖榛子奶黄 ($68 per box of 8) is a decadent gem of sweet and savoury goodness, seamlessly marrying velvety caramel custard paste with crispy hazelnut feuilletine for that tantalising crunch!
