Four Seasons Hotel Singapore’s Snowskin collection
There’s a certain charm about Four Seasons Hotel Singapore’s Jiang-Nan Chun that draws us to its mooncakes every year. It excels in both the Baked and Snowskin variety – often with surprises that tickle the palate.
We love perennial favourites such as Silver Lotus Paste with Melon Seed, Silver Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and Silver Lotus Paste with Double Yolk. Top quality ingredients feature heavily here including premium silver lotus. That the lotus is young and fresh also means less oil and sugar is required to create the paste – really healthy hack! Jiang-Nan Chun’s signature Peking Duck, prepared in a mesquite wood-fire oven, is so well-loved that it has spawned a mooncake flavour – we wait with bated breath the return of the signature Smoked Duck with Assorted Nuts and Lime!
Snowskin flavours such as Bird’s Nest with Custard, Mao Shan Wang Durian, Hazelnut Royaltine Chocolate are excellent choices that score on both the creativity and the flavour front. This year’s refined debutante is the Litchi with Raspberry and Rose which comes gloved in a soft, rose-infused snowskin with the raspberry-rose gelée gem shrouded in a vanilla-litchi pastry cream.
Four Seasons Hotel Singapore recommends pairing the exquisite mooncakes with organic sparkling teas by COPENHAGEN, a Danish label developed by award winning sommelier, Jacob Kocemba and business partner Bo Sten Hensen. Options include LYSERØD made with exclusive white Silver Needle tea for a nice and soft mouthfeel as well as GRØN (5% vol), an alcoholic sparkling tea which brings to mind green tea and citrus notes.
Despite social distancing, gifts bearing food are still a fantastic way to stay in touch with friends and fam. Four Seasons’ mooncakes are placed in elegant botanical-inspired gift boxes; they have powder blue embroidered receptacles that are prized for their longevity as jewellery boxes after Mid-Autumn Festival.
Early Bird Special: order before 6 Sep 2020 for a 20% discount off mooncakes.
