Special ingredients and techniques create these culinary delights
Mott 32 has reinvented the traditional mooncake by offering its patrons delectable treats unlike any other. Partnering with Pierre Hermé, the man dubbed the “Picasso of Pastry” by Vogue magazine, these special and unique treats will be the delight of any recipient. Hermé was named the World’s Best Pastry Chef 2016 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, so you know his culinary creations are ones to be cherished – and devoured!
Hermé tested various combinations and spices (such as cumin, cinnamon, almond, jasmine, kumquat), and explored the potential of using duck fat to replace butter as an ingredient to create something truly unique. The result? Mooncakes layered in textures and aromas that are pleasing to both the eyes and the stomach!
The mooncakes are elegantly presented in a premium blue box with distinctive blue gold prints that can be cherished as a keepsake. Each set comes complete with four delicious mooncakes, including Vanilla (almond and vanilla cake covered with a vanilla chocolate coating), Ispahan (almond, raspberry and rose cake layered with a litchi fruit paste and covered with a pink chocolate coating), Qi Qiao (almond and orange blossom cake layered with a kumquat fruit paste and covered with a white chocolate coating), and Qin Yi (almond and jasmine cake layered with a grapefruit fruit paste and covered with a blond chocolate coating).
The mooncakes are exclusively sold at Mott 32 Hong Kong for $690 each and until Tuesday, 19 September, Sassy readers can pre-order for the special price of $580.
