Epicure - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Each year, epi­cure­ans in Sin­ga­pore will be spoilt for choice when the Mid-au­tumn Fes­ti­val rolls around as F&B es­tab­lish­ments vie with each other to launch the most cre­ative pack­ag­ing and de­li­cious moon­cake flavour. While oth­ers typ­i­cally of­fer gift boxes that dou­ble up as jew­ellery cases or lanterns, Crys­tal Jade’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dis­ney’s Mickey and Friends goes a step fur­ther and comes in the form of a lim­ited edi­tion Dis­ney mu­si­cal carousel moon­cake tin ($88 in­clud­ing eight moon­cakes).

Plug the stun­ning rose gold tin to an at­tached USB cable and the whole de­vice im­me­di­ately lights up from within. As the car­ni­val-like tune of Mickey Mouse March plays in the back­ground, you can ad­mire spe­cially-com­mis­sioned draw­ings of Mickey, Min­nie, Don­ald, Dis­ney and Goofy on a carousel ride. What’s more, housed in­side the carousel tin is a two-tier dessert tray; present the moon­cakes on the el­e­gant ves­sel for af­ter­noon tea, or use it as a ta­ble cen­tre­piece there­after.

Housed within Dis­ney's mu­si­cal carousel moon­cake box are eight moon­cakes in two flavours ($88/four of each flavour). The Chocolate Manuka Honey snow skin en­cases a white chocolate cen­tre and a smooth and not-too-sweet chocolate paste, which is guar­an­teed to be a hit with kids and adults alike. Bite into the Pan­dan Lo­tus with gula Me­laka moon­cake to discover a jade green lo­tus paste en­velop­ing a creamy gula Me­laka filled white chocolate cen­tre.

For purists, Crys­tal Jade’s tra­di­tional moon­cakes, which sport thin golden brown and moist pas­try skin and a gen­er­ous fill­ing of low sugar pre­mium nat­u­ral white lo­tus, will not dis­ap­point. They come in a choice of melon seeds ($58 for four), sin­gle yolk ($62 for four) and dou­ble yolk ($68 for four). An­other va­ri­ety is the Mixed Nuts and Chicken Ham ($68 for four), which is chock-full of orange peel, se­same seeds, al­monds and chicken ham. All tra­di­tional moon­cakes are housed in classy turquoise boxes with a gem stone-in­spired de­sign.
