Shang Palace celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival with a uniquely luxurious Chocolate Trilogy mooncake collection, available from 17 August to 27 September 2015.
Drawing inspiration from the popularity of French desserts, the restaurant’s Master Chef Steven Ng (吴超仁) is the brainchild of this year’s unique artisanal mooncake, which features a perfect amalgamation of ingredients from the East and West.
The Chocolate Trilogy mooncake collection, which pairs perfectly with champagne, combines a fine layer of chocolate enveloping lotus seed paste and other Oriental ingredients. The three flavours featured are Dark Chocolate with Lotus Seed Paste and Candied Orange, Milk Chocolate with Lotus Seed Paste, Mixed Nuts, Pumpkin and Melon Seeds and Carrot, as well as White Chocolate with Lotus Seed Paste, Green Tea and Coconut.
With the assistance of Area Pastry Chef Hervé Potus, each mooncake is handcrafted with precision to enhance its distinctive flavours. A delicate layer of chocolate is specifically measured and constructed to present a well-balanced thickness and texture for the perfect bite.
Presented in a specially designed premium gift box with beautiful orchid motifs, these artisan mooncakes are priced at S$116 nett per set (two pieces of each flavour) and will make ideal gifts to business associates, friends and family.
Fans of the baked variety will enjoy three refreshingly innovative mooncake flavours: Baked Salted Green Bean Paste Mooncake with Coconut, Mini Baked Salted Kumquat Mooncake with Coconut and Mini Baked Custard Mooncake. All mooncakes are presented in customised satin boxes with elegant peach-blossom embroidery.
In addition to the new flavours, Shang Palace’s menu offers choices for guests who prefer the traditional baked combination of glistening salted egg yolks ensconced in sweet white lotus seed paste. Variations with four, double and single yolk are available.The Shang Palace Four Treasures Baked Mooncake Box is an elegant gift comprising four regular baked mooncakes (one piece of each flavour) – White Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolks, White Lotus Seed Paste with Single Yolk, Plain White Lotus Seed Paste and Mixed Nuts with Chicken Ham.
Guests may purchase Shang Palace’s mooncakes at the lobby of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore from 17 August to 27 September 2015 and at retail booths located at shopping malls island-wide, including Takashimaya, VivoCity, Jurong Point and Parkway Parade, to name a few.
