Mooncake Treasures at Goodwood Park Hotel

Apple Caramel Snowskin Mooncake

Goodwood Park Hotel has always surprised their diners with fruity concoctions when mooncakes are concerned. Apart from the signature D24 Durian and Cempedak Snowskin Mooncakes and the bestseller, Mango with Pomelo Snowskin Mooncake, the new addition to the 2010 mooncake family is the Apple Caramel Snowskin Mooncake.

Using a combination of green apple puree with chunks of caramelized and fresh Granny Smith Apples, one can expect this to be a refreshing treat for sunny Singapore.

Had mixed feelings towards this new creation, if you were to pop the entire thing into the mouth, you will be confused by what you have just eaten. Caramel is not distinctive in this but what strikes is a stark contrast between the soft, chewy snowskin and the crunchy apples. As for the taste, the slight tangy apple puree will be the main description for this. Anyway, no harm getting a box of assorted since D24 Durian, Cempedak and Mango with Pomelo Snowskin have been an all-time favourite.

Almond Beancurd w Logan

To commemorate the hotel's 110th anniversary, the chefs have created a 12-cm masterpiece - The Almond Beancurd with Longan Giant Snowskin Mooncake. Yes this is a remake of the popular chinese dessert Almond Beancurd with Longan within a snowskin. The refreshing almond jelly with crunchy longan bits is bound to steal the limelight among the mooncakes. Not only it is light on the palate, the chewy sweet snowskin brings in a new dimension to this dessert.

Also, this exclusive mooncake is presented in an elegant gold silk drawstring pouch, making it an ideal gift for this festive season.

Our only complain? This mooncake has to be consumed within a day or two upon collection and due to its size, it will take awhile to thaw.

All mooncakes are available from 10 August to 22 Sep 2010 at the Deli.

For more details, refer the promotion page of Goodwood Park Hotel.

Lastly, many thanks to the Senior Marketing Communications Executive, Ms. Dorothy Lim for the mooncakes and time to explain the specialities and new creations of Goodwood Park.

Stargirl: Yea, by the time it reaches Mid-Autumn Festival, I am quite full to eat anymore under the full moon.

But then again, there are so many flavours and it is not possible to try all of them if we eat them on Mid-Autumn Festival itself.

Clare: Yea, it is limited in quantity as this is created to commemorate the 110th anniversary of Goodwood Park so do place your orders early.

I liked this the most among the 5 flavours offered this year.

Ivan: I have replied you. Pardon for the late mail...
