Goodwood Park Hotel most anticipated Durian Fiesta is back again this year from 4th March to 17th July 2016. With a stronger and larger lineup, durian fans can look forward to a range of favorite treats and new twist on traditional delights.
There is a total 13 handcrafted treasures including seven brand new creations, which I have tried four – durian kueh lapis, durian black sea salt caramel cake, durian crunchy chocolate hazelnut tartlet and durian ice cream popsicles.
From 4 March to 17 July 2016, these luscious confections can be purchased at the hotel’s Deli, along with other much-loved signature items such as the Durian Puff, D24 Durian Mousse Cake, Durian Crêpe and D24 or “Mao Shan Wang” Durian Ice Cream Tubs.
Durian Kueh Lapis ($12 per slice, $62 for whole cake) – The classic layered cake famed for its unmistakable buttery flavour and spice fragrance is now presented in a magnificent new form, whereby layers of pulpy D24 durian mousse and almond sponge are framed by the golden ‘multi-layer’ cake, resulting in a unique version of this traditional confection.
Every bite holds varying textures, making this a must-have to usher in the durian season.
Durian Black Sea Salt Caramel Cake ($13 per slice, $85 for whole cake) – Hawaiian black sea salt is used in this luscious cake to complement the hefty D24 durian and caramel flavours, adding feather-light savoury touches to this creation.
The glistening top layer of caramel is dotted with dark-as-night salt crystals, making this cake an avant-garde centrepiece.
Mini D24 Durian Ice Cream Bar ($6 per bar, $30 for a box of six assorted flavours) – These cute 3-inch treats will satisfy both durian and ice cream cravings. Painstakingly handmade with pure D24 durian pulp, these dainty ice cream popsicles come in six gorgeous flavours – Original; Dark chocolate; White chocolate with rainbow sprinkles; Milk chocolate; Pink chocolate; and Milk chocolate with almonds.
With the exception of Original, a version which purists will enjoy, the rest are coated with a crunchy chocolate shell and topped with various embellishments.
Durian Crunchy Chocolate Hazelnut Tartlet ($43 for six pieces) – These elegant mini tarts topped with delicate gold flakes are filled with a layer of D24 durian pulp and milk chocolate-hazelnut mixture, boasting a crunchy texture from within.
The delicious roasted nuts and richness from the durian are perfect with an afternoon cuppa.
Other new creations include the popular Durian Rainbow Ice Cream Cake ($12 per slice, $52 for whole cake) will come in 10.5-inch long version this year, and a rich D24 Durian Pudding with Osmanthus Jelly ($6.80++ per serving) is available only for dine-in at Min Jiang.
