Menu

Pain au Levain with Bacon Roasted Garlic
-Natural French Style Sourdough with Garlic Roasted in Bacon Drippings-
A sourdough bread leavened by two natural yeast starters. Garlic roasted with homemade bacon is added to the final dough for roundness and balance.

Rendang Bouchees
-Puff Pastry Shells filled with Malaysian Style Beef Curry and Pickled Vegetables -
French viennoiserie meets Malaysian cookery. In this style of curry, meat is cooked slowly in coconut milk until the milk renders oil. Like confit, the oil preserves and contributes unique flavors to the meat. Acar - pickled vegetables add lightness and balanced to the curry.

Phoenix Tart
-Roasted Pineapple with Lime Mascarpone, Pistachio, and Oranges marinated in Spiced Merlot-
In mythology, the Phoenix is a firebird that is born from its own ashes. In this tart, the bottom layer of roasted pineapple and the top layer of oranges represent fire; death and rebirth. The lime mascarpone represents the Phoenix’s soul, pure and bright, untainted by the burning fires.

Quan Yin Cake
-Black Sesame Sponge Cake with Soursop coulis, Coconut and Mango Mousse-
Quan Yin is the Buddhist goddess of Mercy. The Vietnamese names for the fruits used in this cake translate to “Granted Wishes”. This cake is a symbol of Quan Yin’s gift to living beings.

Show Time
-Pear and Kumquat Mousse with Chocolate Sauce, Coconut Loveletters, Cirrus Cheese and Kumquat Cocktail-
The world of drama and pastry are very much alike. In a recipe or a play there are ingredients/actors, method/plot, and an audience. In both worlds props, costumes, sound and lighting all contribute into the audience’s perception and enjoyment. The show begins with Kumquat sauce leading to an explosion, where pear mousse is revealed. Chocolate sauce gives the mousse a unexpected twist. Cirrus, a local camembert cheese from Mt. Townsend Creamery creates a turning point as it mirrors the mousse’s creaminess. The performance is wrapped up with a kumquat cocktail, made with homemade rice wine.

Passion After Dark
-Dark Chocolate with Black Tea Ganache, Passion fruit and Pomelo Flower-
Passion…fruit and Pomelo flower unveils itself in black tea ganache after the dark chocolate and melts away leaving a lasting impression. The Chinese characters on the candies spell “east, west and prosperity”. Together, they symbolize harmony between the east and the west; bring prosperity to one another.
