Tracing back to the aged-old tradition where Cantonese mooncakes primarily showcase red date paste, our culinary maestros are giving this perennial Mid-Autumn delicacy a western, luxurious twist with the addition of Jambon de Bayonne, pistachos and egg yolk. Boasting the natural sweetness and nutrition of red dates, this full-bodied mooncake is juxtaposed with savory, smoky premium meat and salted egg yolk that balance the sweetness; the gamey cured meat has just enough fat to pad the red date paste, giving the overall pastry a melt-in-your-mouth quality that keeps you going back for more; crunchy pistachios for that welcome crunch; gold-dusted charcoal skin for a touch of luxury – this is a treat not to be missed.
Elevating this delicacy up a notch, these mooncakes are paired with a premium bottle of Chateau Rieussec Cru Classé Sauternes wine that boast vibrant fruity and floral notes.
