Five Nuts with Glazed Ham and Hibiscus Mooncakes
Five Nuts mooncakes have always been a perennial favourite of parents and grandmothers as it channels memories of their childhood. Chinese Executive Chef Chan Yan Tak and his team gives this traditional confectionary a modern twist, adding a welcome hint of floral tartness from hibiscus to complement with the nutty flavours. Even though the name suggests five nuts, chefs included six types of nuts in the recipe: there are walnut, cashew nut, pine nut, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed and almond, and not only does the crunchy texture resembles a cereal bar, the pastry also embodies abundance. This protein-rich mooncake will attract a lot of attention this season.
Purchase the Assorted Mini Mooncake box and enjoy both novel and classic flavours. The gift box includes six mooncakes and three flavours – White Lotus Seed Paste Preserved Eggs and Pickled Ginger Mooncake, Five Nuts with Glazed Ham and Hibiscus Mooncake and Lotus Seed Paste Mooncakes with Salted Egg Yolk and Black Truffle. It is the perfect treat for those who want it all.
Not to be missed is the Cream Custard with Toasted Pine Nuts mooncake, a sought-after delicacy created by Chef Tak since the Hotel opened.
All Lung King Heen mooncakes are handmade by the restaurant chefs and contain no preservatives. The cakes are elegantly presented in a gift box newly designed by the locally renowned Alan Chan.
Taking inspiration from Chef Tak and his team’s finesse in handcrafting mooncakes, Alan Chan Design created a package that looks and feels more handmade than manufactured. The natural earthy colour palette of the box conveys clean, understated chic. The compartments inside the box are adorned with sketches of Chinese clouds, mountain landscape and a festive poem to pay tribute to Mid-Autumn Festival. The contemporary design complements the purity of the cakes proving that indeed, less is more.
