An Indulgence Of The Classic And Contemporary
YÀN AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY SINGAPORE
Yàn celebrates the Mid-autumn Festival with the traditional in an untraditional manner.
Their classic White Lotus Paste Mooncakes are an ode to time-honoured traditions in single or double salted egg yolks, also offered in a macadamia nut alternative. A popular mainstay, the Thousand Layer Yam Mooncakes are freshly handcrafted spirals of flaky pastry encasing an aromatic filling of sweet and earthy yam paste, plain or with a salted egg yolk for a savoury-sweet treat. No less popular, the Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin Mooncake is luscious rich, and bittersweet Mao Shan Wang durian pulp is enclosed within a soft pastel yellow snowskin.
Beyond the traditional gift box, specially curated gift sets pair Yàn’s mooncakes in collaboration with treats from home grown brands Fossa Chocolate, Kindred Tea, and Smoke & Mirrors.
The time-honoured match of mooncake with tea features Kindred Tea’s Chrysanthemum Pu-erh Tuocha. The full-bodied brew with light floral notes balances the sweet white lotus paste.
The contemporary pairing of mooncake and tea chocolate features two artisanal tea-infused bars from Fossa Chocolate. The award-winning Honey Orchid Dancong Oolong Tea Chocolate and the Traditional Liu Bao Hei Cha Tea Chocolate.
Yàn’s Chrysanthemum Harmony Gift Set features Chrysanthemum Pu-erh Tuocha from Kindred Tea and Chrysanthemum Chocolate from Fossa Chocolate.
Two bottled cocktails from Smoke & Mirrors present a modern pairing experience that complements the baked pastries. Bananas in a Glass is a twist on the negroni with banana-infused cognac and salted banana liqueur. While 1959 is an elevated Manhattan that balances aged rum and chocoberry vermouth with charcoal-roasted cacao nibs.
