Every Mid-Autumn Festival, the society reenacts rituals that are fascinating to say the least. While we enjoy moon watching and carnivals dotted with lanterns, food assumes a central role throughout the festivities. At their core, these mouthwatering delicacies are the symbols of togetherness and the family’s well-being. With this in mind, Golden Leaf prepares an array of gastronomic sensations from homemade mooncakes, luxury gift hampers to a hearty festive feast, to let guests send thoughts and gestures of love to the people they treasure.
Nothing better captures the spirit of Mid-Autumn Festival than a perfectly baked mooncake. The five options offered by Golden Leaf satisfy groups with different preferences. The traditional mooncake features balanced flavours with white lotus seed paste and salted egg yolk complementing each other. Those who appreciate reduced sweetness will gravitate towards the low sugar mooncake and mixed nuts mooncake. The contemporary inventions come in smaller sizes: the green tea mooncake with egg yolk charms tea lovers with subtle herbal notes, while its counterpart with egg custard filling oozes sumptuousness in every bite.
Tailored for a lavish moon watching party, Cake Shop’s Mid-Autumn Festival hampers encompass classic and modern treats. Ranging from HK$998 to HK$3,188, inside each exquisitely wrapped leather box are the mooncakes and supreme X.O. sauce from Golden Leaf, as well as fine wines selected by the hotel’s sommeliers, all make for an elegant gift for friends and business partners. Customized hampers and gift vouchers are also available for individual gifting purposes. Making the Mid-autumn delicacies even more attractive, 5% discounts will be given to purchases made before 27 August. Members of Premium Club can purchases all the mooncakes and hampers at 15% off.
Diners looking to delve into the sophisticated cuisine inspired by the festival can head to Golden Leaf, where chef Tony Wan Chung-Yiu devises a sumptuous dinner to be served from 1 to 5 October. The dishes on the menu echo the season and spirit of the occasion. For instance, steamed fresh crab with Chinese rice wine and ginger is warm and comforting to combat the autumn chill, while sautéed prawn with hawthorn herb, pineapple and chilli sauce provides a pop of flavours fit for a lively celebration. The eight-course dinner is priced at HK$800* per head. Book a table now to experience the exceptional feast and a time of bonding.
