Calling all matcha aficionados, the Fetish Matcha campaign by Antoinette is the one and only ticket you’ll ever need to satisfy your fetish fix.
Curated by chef-patissier Pang Kok Keong, the campaign features 22 matcha creations ranging from hot items, cakes, pastry, confectionery and drinks that would make even the famously picky French queen, Marie Antoinette, swoon with desire.
Each of the 22 ‘fetishes’ is lovingly conceived and brilliantly crafted to display the depth and versatility of this ethereal, enigmatic green powder. Each stunning in ambition and unique in identity: some flavours bold and expressive, others subtle and unexpected. Matcha is presented in ways never known, leaving one intrigued, delighted, and inspired.
Matcha is powdered whole green-tea leaves, usually stone-ground. Antoinette uses high quality matcha powder from Nishio, Japan, for refined flavour and health benefits. Containing vitamins, minerals, and a powerful type of antioxidant called catechins, macha is often called “the ultimate mental and medical remedy”. Matcha fetishists, you can have your cake – and eat it too!
For this inaugural fetish campaign, Chef Pang has upped his game and woven a pageant of matcha wonders that bewitches all the 5 senses. Matcha French Toast, Matcha Pop, Matcha Almond Tuile, and Matcha Latte are just some of the seductive highlights.
Matcha Pasta ($22)* – Matcha powder is mixed while making the dough for the pasta. The hand-cut pasta is then garnished with marinated kombu and sakura ebi with matcha powder on the side. The morel mushrooms and black truffle paste give a deliciously earthy hint to the dish.
Matcha French Toast ($16)* – Absolutely gorgeous fluffy matcha brioche with maple syrup and vanilla Chantilly on the side.
Matcha Crepe ($18)* – French crepe prepared a la minute complete with French chestnut cream and vanilla Chantilly.
Matcha Pancake ($15)* – Fluffy Matcha pancake stack with marron glacé Chantilly perfumed with rum and maple syrup.
Matcha Croissant ($6) – Crisp buttery croissant filled with molten lava matcha.
Matcha Cake Pop ($9.50) – Not your typical Magnum ice cream, but a popsicle of matcha cake with white chocolate and matcha ganache enrobed with milk chocolate and roasted almonds. An exquisite multi-textured experience of crunchiness, softness, and sweetness in a single bite.
