NEW BAKED MOONCAKE FLAVOURS WITH A TWIST

WAN HAO PREMIUM GIFTSET NEW (LIMITED EDITION)

S$238nett
黑松露圣丹尼火腿莲蓉坚果月饼, 一瓶法国罗兰百悦香槟 (375 毫升)


Looking for the ultimate ensemble to
impress the most discerning palates this Mid Autumn Festival? Go for the best and savour four luxurious, gold-dusted
Black Truffle Baked Mooncakes with gourmet San
Daniele Ham from Italy, Single Yolk & Pistachios. An
internationally haute cuisine ingredient and the
“black diamond” in the culinary realm, the
Black Truffle produces a unique earthy
aroma; the sweet and aromatic Proscuitto di San Daniele
Ham that is revered as the King of Ham
complements the sweetness of the silky
White Lotus Seed Paste; the perfectly cooked yolk holds the right amount of saltiness; the
pistachios adds a fragrant, addictive crunch – all these goodness are encased within a black charcoal
skin, before they are brushed with edible gold dust for that touch of elegance and luxury.
Elevating this delicacy is the premium bottle of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne that is refreshing
and easy on the palate, complete with notes of honeysuckle, ripe peach and citrus. The epitome of
elegance and finesse, this bubbly adds that extra oomph to the mooncakes; the champagne’s
vibrant acidity cuts through the savoury richness; the lotus paste accentuates the tangy lemony flavours in
the champagne.

Assorted Baked Mooncakes!
