September is definately one a very rare month that we get to enjoy lots of holidays and it is indeed Once in a Blue Moon. Matching perfectly with the theme that had been set by Grand Dorsett Subang for upcoming Mid Autumm festival with their settings of mooncake Once in a Blue Moon.
Mooncake these days are getting more variety of flavour, however there are some classic that is still not to be missed. This year Master Chef Alex Chan from The Emperor Chinese Restaurant, Dorsett Grand Subang, handcrafts the classic mooncake varieties with a twist. The hotel’s signature mooncake for this year is the Crystal Skin Pandan Lotus Paste with Single Yolk which embodies the Dorsett identity with its snow skin in blue.
Blue? Yup, it matches back to their theme Once in a Blue Moon as we were being showcase by the chef on the making of the blue snow skin.
Blue Crystal Skin Pandan Lotus Paste with Single Yolk 蓝冰皮单黄翡翠月饼 @ RM30.00/pcs with the actual size of normal mooncakes. (as picture shown above is for tasting portion only.)
The mooncake is free from artificial colouring as it is derived from ‘Bunga Telang’ extracts. Bunga Telang; also known as Blue Pea Flower, carries antioxidants which can lower blood pressure as well as enhancing memory and brain power. If this filling is not your prefered choice then you can opt for red bean paste filling @ RM28.00/pcs.
