Master Chef Yiu Wing Keung Live Demonstrate The Making of Snow Skin Mooncake

At Tai Thong Mooncake Press Conference there were quiet a number of guests being invited as I saw more than 100 guests were present. This was held recently at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort and the guests were well entertained by the drum performance.

Master Chef Yiu Wing Keung an award winning mooncake specialist, the “sifu” of mooncake creator at Tai Thong showcased the new mooncakes and held a live mooncake making right in front of all the guests. It looked so simple and easy but I am sure when it comes to have a handmade making by myself would definitely be a great task.

Made solely from fresh premium-grade Musang King Durian, Tai Thong’s Imperial Musang King Royale envelopes the pungent fruit paste in a delicate snow skin case, resulting in a luscious and creamy mouthful in every bite.

Priced at RM78.00 nett for a pair, these kingly mooncakes are expected to entice and attract more durian fans this year with its full bodied flavour and unique fragrance

I managed to grab a bite this highly recommended Imperial Musang King Royale during the tasting. It was super good and I cannot answer for the rest as I am a die hard durian lover. It mooncake was creamy, soft and smell fresh, this got me craving for more.

Snow Skin Mango Kiwi with Assorted Dried Fruits

Snow Skin Mango Kiwi with Assorted Dried Fruits came with a refreshing with a tropical twist, sweet mangoes are paired with tart kiwi lotus paste and assorted dried fruits for added texture. Well I am not a great fan of kiwi fruit and therefore it did not excites me. I was rather curious of the mango lotus paste. It was genuinely tasty, lovely to have a foul play with my lips. It was that bad, just that I am not a good kiwi fan.

Blueberry Lotus with Dried Fruits & Assorted Seeds

Blueberry Lotus with Dried Fruits & Assorted Seeds with such interesting description given, “Sweet, ripe “superfruit” blueberries bring a distinctive colour to this mooncake, paired with a crunchy mix of fruits and seeds”. This mooncake sure was given a modern western sweet dessert in taste as the present of the blueberry infused into the lotus paste. It was whacky different that came with a fruity taste and infused along with dried fruits to give it gummy texture while the assorted seeds sparkled crunchy texture. The combination worked pretty well and it was not overly sweet. Something different.

Orange Lotus with Palm Sugar & Assorted Seeds

Orange Lotus with Palm Sugar & Assorted Seeds – Rich caramel notes from pure coconut palm sugar perfectly complement the zesty citrus flavour of orange – infused lotus paste. The description itself seems to be very inviting. I put on a smile too as I got myself a piece to taste and it got my liking. The taste of the light orange lotus paste seems to have the magic aroma and I liked the light smell of the orange playing with my sense of smell, it was fabulous. The palm sugar that seated right in the centre of the mooncake connected so well with the orange lotus paste. The palm sugar acted sugary and yet robust in taste while the assorted seeds like lotus see and almond landed on my piece gave it a nice biting texture. I really fall for this one. Brilliant.

Snow Skin Pineapple Lotus with Jackfruit Mochi

I fond the Snow Skin Pineapple Lotus with Jackfruit Mochi rather playful. It was pen down as deliciously tangy and sweet, pineapple lotus paste surround a surprise chewy mochi centre filled with creamy jackfruit. I got to admit that I was impressed and I surprised with the creativeness in creating this mooncake. I got excited with having the creamy jackfruit coated over with mocha and gated over with pineapple lotus. It was dazzling in having it and it was a unique combination.
