Theo Mistral by Theo Randall at InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong announces the first collaboration with non-profit organization Smile with Us HK to launch a special edition dessert platter ‘Piatto Di Dolci’ for charity between 1 December 2018 and 30 March 2019. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to J Life Foundation Limited to help underprivileged as well as low-income families and children.
UK Celebrity Chef Theo Randall, the mastermind behind Theo Mistral by Theo Randall and Ms. Laurinda Ho, the founder of Smile with Us HK, spent approximately three weeks working together to co-create Meringue with Raspberries and Mascarpone Cream, the highlight of our special edition dessert platter. It is rooted in British classic dessert ‘Eton Mess’ yet infused with Italian flavor, featuring a crispy meringue as the base, topped with Italian mascarpone cream and raspberries then garnished with caramelized almonds.
Alexander O. Wassermann, General Manager of InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong said: “We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen, and supporting communities through giving has always been a cornerstone of our business. Ms. Laurinda Ho is so dedicated to community service, so we invited Smile with Us HK for a charity collaboration and join forces to extend our care to those in need.”
“Desserts put a smile on our faces.” Chef Theo Randall commented. “I am delighted to team up with Ms. Laurinda Ho and co-create a dessert infused with Italian flavor on this special occasion. I sincerely wish to share happiness and bring positive energy into the community.” He continued.
Ms. Laurinda Ho, Founder of Smile with Us HK added: “We have been working with different charities and commercial organizations, such as InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong and J life Foundation Limited, to raise awareness and support projects that will bring more smiles and help create a more caring and more harmonious community. Our utmost gratitude to British Celebrity Chef Theo Randall and InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong for their devotion on this charity collaboration. We look forward to continuously working closely to serve the community we love and live in.”
Ms. Elli Fu, Founder of J Life Foundation Limited said: “We are honoured to be the beneficiary of this charity collaboration initiated by Theo Mistral by Theo Randall and Smile with Us HK. We hope more orders of the special edition dessert platter could be placed and substantial amount of money could be raised. Funds raised will help provide tangible support (food and goods) and non-tangible support (education) to underprivileged families.”
The special edition dessert platter ‘Piatto Di Dolci’, priced at HK$188+10%, features four divine desserts, namely Meringue with Raspberries and Mascarpone Cream, Soft Chocolate Cake, Amalfi Lemon Tart and Panna Cotta. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to J Life Foundation Limited. This special edition dessert platter is available from 1 December 2018 to 30 March 2019.
