Tradition Meets Elegant Perfection With Le Meridien’s 2021 Mid-Autumn Festival Collection
Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur is presenting an enthralling ensemble of timeless baked classics, contemporary snow skin creations and exquisite bold & boozy snow skin gems delicately perfected by their master chefs with their upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival Collection.
Re-inspired by Le Méridien’s mid-century European flair steeped in Chinese tradition, their Timeless Baked Classics, adorned in Le Méridien’s MidCentury Blue, adds a touch of nostalgia with its selection of White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, Mother-of-Pearl Pure Lotus Paste with Single Yolk, classic Red Bean Paste and Assorted Fruits & Nuts – a tasteful delight of almonds, walnuts, white sesame, redcurrants, melon seeds and zesty tangerine peel creating sensational texture and flavour.
And as per yearly tradition, Le Méridien is also introducing a curated collection of locally-inspired Contemporary Snow Skin Creations. Delight in the caramelised flavours of ‘pisang emas’, or better known as Lady Finger bananas in English, enrobed in snow skin made of blue pea flower resulting in a snow skin mooncake that features ethereal strokes of blue on white as you take a bite into the artisanal Caramelised Banana ‘Emas’ with Sea Salt.
For those with a taste for the exotic, the unique Grapefruit with Wild ‘Tualang’ Honey creation is a must-try! This refreshing treat features crisp fruity notes with juicy bites of grapefruit, soaked with wild ‘Tualang’ honey collected from the Malaysian rainforest by the Tualang Orang Asli.
Making a comeback is their crowd-favourite coffee-infused snow skin mooncake. Savour a new rendition: the Signature illy Coffee “Macchiato” & Roasted Hazelnut where illy Coffee is blended in both snow skin and paste.
And last but not least, be captivated by their alluring collection of Exquisite Bold & Boozy Snow Skin Gems this season. Opt for four choices to choose from, each flavour has a personality of its own guaranteed to set your taste buds towards unparalleled pleasure. Inspired by a refreshing summer cocktail that is perfect to indulge on especially on a lazy, hot day, surprise your taste buds with the mooncake rendition of Italian Delight: Prosecco-Raspberry Limoncello. Swathed in a prosecco-infused shell, it boasts a refreshing sweet-tangy flavour that comes from the raspberries and zesty notes of limoncello. This snow skin mooncake is also Instagram-worthy as it comes in hues of soft orange and peach, providing it with a delicate appearance.
This year, snow skin mooncake connoisseurs and chocoholics alike can look forward to a new flavour that’s guaranteed to please: the Bacardi Rum-Flavored Chocolate Ganache & Dried Strawberries packs a punch with its dried strawberries and rum-infused paste, complete with a delicious rum-filled white chocolate centre for a sweet aftertaste.
For those looking for a pick-me-up post-dinner, the Absolut Vodka illy Espresso, a caffeinated mooncake that is surprisingly balanced, with just the right ratio of booze, coffee and sugar, it is an indulgence for the senses and is bound to gratify. Continue your enchantment with the exquisite ‘Ying Tao’ Red Cherry infused in VSOP Brandy snow skin mooncake which encases a 48-hour long brandy-infused red cherries making it the perfect choice to those wanting a refined taste of alcohol all in one bite.
