The audacious and debonair Travelling Gourmet TM tells you about Pan Pacific Singapore’s…
MANY yummie Christmas goodies! Much worthy of mention is the big Pear William and Caramel Nut Log Cake inspired by the humble Snickers candy bar. Made with sexy Jivara Milk Chocolate plus chunky Pear cubes, there is also zesty Pear Curd. The velvety pear fruit is very yummie. Valrhona’s Jivara milk chocolate has 41% Cocoa with pleasing flavours of vanilla and caramel. A lovely crunchy texture comes from the caramelised Hazelnuts! Hazelnuts, like almonds, are very healthy and raise up your good cholesterol. Aesthetically, the hazelnut-studded Log Cake is very pleasing with Chocolate garnishes like wafer-thin chocolate Tannenbaeume/Christmas trees.
For a local touch, they also have the Mao Shan Wang (Gold Mountain) Durian and Gula Melaka Log Cake, as well as the Coconut Mango Calamansi Log Cake.
Another goodie is the German Marzipan Stollen. Germans love stollen at Christmas time. Try too the Christmas Homemade Chocolate Pralines!
For savouries, tuck into unusual Baked Tamarind Turkey, sweet Honey Glazed Ham and meaty Roasted Kurobuta Pork Belly and more!
Orchard Road put up Christmas decorations in September so here is wishing you an early Merry Christmas! OMG! It is only November!!! Bon appetit! 🙂
