Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong
Three Michelin star Lung King Heen at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong introduces two new flavours for their traditional puddings for this year’s Chinese New Year festivities – water chestnut pudding with strawberry fruit tea and Lunar New Year pudding with coconut flower syrup. Steeped in tradition and sophistication, the Lung King Heen puddings make great gifts or better still – have them at your family reunion!
For the Year of the Pig, Chinese Executive Chef Chan Yan Tak and team bring a delightful twist to the traditional water chestnut pudding, infusing it with strawberry-lychee fruit tea. The green tea in the infusion adds a grassy balance to the sweet fruit for a refreshing, innovative dessert.
An alternative to the traditional Lunar New Year pudding, Lung King Heen adds organic coconut flower syrup in the mixture, giving a caramel-like aroma that makes a perfect complement to the steamed chewy rice cake. Coconut flower syrup is an all-natural sweetener, low on the glycemic index giving this classic snack a healthier, tropical twist.
A perennial favourite of local guests, Lung King Heen puddings come in two additional flavours, each handmade and produced in small quantities by the star team helmed by Chef Tak.
