The Mei Jiang chefs have handcrafted more than three million traditional mooncakes, which make the perfect festive treat to share with family and friends
The Peninsula Bangkok makes Mid-Autumn Festival a culinary celebration with the return of the hotel’s legendary egg custard mooncakes. The deliciously light and delicate mooncakes are handmade according to a traditional Hong Kong recipe that uses organic eggs to produce the finest quality texture and flavour. Each Mid-Autumn Festival, which this year falls on Wednesday 4 October, the exquisite mooncakes are cherished gifts to share among family and friends.
Chinese Cuisine Executive Chef Jackie Ho and his team at Mei Jiang meticulously handcraft each egg custard mooncake using a closely guarded recipe originally created by Chef Yip Wing Wah, The Peninsula Hotels’ Dim Sum Ambassador. Chef Yip adapted a timeless Hong Kong recipe passed down through the generations, and The Peninsula Bangkok inherited this fine tradition for hotel guests and local residents to enjoy.
The Peninsula Bangkok’s eight–piece egg custard mooncake gift set is priced at B890, and can be purchased from 10 August to 4 October 2017 at The Peninsula Boutique. The Peninsula’s egg custard mooncakes are also available for purchase at The Peninsula pop–up stores on the ground level of Siam Paragon from 10 August to 4 October 2017 and the EmQuartier shopping mall from 22 September to 4 October 2017.
