Playful elegance meets festive joy in Rosewood’s debut mooncake collection, carefully curated by esteemed Executive Chef Teng Kam Seng of Zhan Liang, Cambodia’s finest Chinese restaurant.
With Mid-Autumn Festival fast approaching, Rosewood Phnom Penh is delighted to debut its inaugural mooncake collection, “Love Parcel from the Moon.” These exquisite gift sets feature whimsical yet harmonious designs, complementing nine delectable flavors carefully curated by Executive Chef Teng Kam Seng, who helms the hotel’s prestigious Chinese fine-dining restaurant, Zhan Liang.
Wishes of joy and prosperity abound with these sophisticated gift sets, perfect for delighting loved ones or showing appreciation for friends and colleagues. Designed by acclaimed Hong Kong-based creative studio RCS, each mooncake set depicts the Mid-Autumn tale’s ethereal romance in vivid, abstract patterns.
A close examination of the interweaving motif brings an intriguing scene into view: ornate windows frame a moonlit lunar pond, where adorable lunar bunnies hop, play, and spread messages of love and cheer. Continuing the ode to Mid-Autumn, the festive gift sets double as a picnic basket adorned with a leather handle. Opening it reveals a whimsical surprise as a drawer swivels outward to reveal a selection of delectable mooncakes.
Rosewood Phnom Penh is pleased to present two limited-edition Love Parcel from the Moon gift sets curated by Chef Seng. The Assorted Mooncake Boxes (USD118/box) contain a mix of classic and creative flavors using only the finest ingredients, including Durian Lotus, Golden Charcoal, and Pandan Lotus with Crushed Macadamia and Sunflower Seed, as well as several low-sugar options like Lotus Crushed Yolk, Pandan Lotus Crushed Yolk, and Red Bean.
In addition to the six types featured in the Assorted Mooncake Box, the Premium Mooncake Box (USD188/box) offers three more delicious creations: Double Sesame, Mixed Nuts, and Lotus Yam Crushed Yolk. From durian to pandan and lotus, many ingredients reflect Cambodian culinary traditions as part of Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy, through which each Rosewood property champions local history, people, and culture at every opportunity.
Finally, Rosewood Phnom Penh’s Mooncake Hamper (USD888/hamper) is the ultimate gift for friends, family, and business associates. Each hamper includes an Assorted Mooncake Box, as well as an array of decadent gourmet treats such as Australian abalone, Zhan Liang’s signature XO sauce, homemade honey-glazed walnuts, a bag of the renowned Ti Kuan Yin Superior Tea from Fujian province, and a bottle of 2010 Dom Perignon Brut Champagne.
“The Mid-Autumn Festival is a joyous occasion – a time for a reunion with loved ones, friends, and business associates. Our exclusive mooncake boxes and hampers are the perfect accompaniment to bonding moments with family or team dinners with colleagues,” said Daniel Simon, managing director of Rosewood Phnom Penh.
Love Parcel from the Moon gift sets is available for pre-order today. Guests who purchase a voucher can pick up their mooncakes in person at Zhan Liang between August 20 and September 12, 2022.
