Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for celebrating the important things in life. Mooncakes are a hallmark of this jubilant holiday, and sharing of them is a traditional way of honouring the harmonious bonds of friends and family.
Four Seasons Hotel Beijing would like to extend best wishes from its family to its guests with a sumptuous surprise: mooncakes filled with gourmet Valrhona chocolate. The rich, smooth taste of chocolate from this world-class chocolatier inside these traditional treats make them the perfect gift to show appreciation to everyone from business partners to in-laws.
Executive Pastry Chef Francesco Mannino uses his finely honed skills to complement the distinct flavuors of Valrhona chocolate, creating an innovative series of tastes, including matcha and raspberry, Earl Grey tea and blue flowers, Chinese five spices, lemon and blueberry, mango and orange, and salted caramel. The results are modern mooncakes that appear simple on the outside, but contain hidden depths and complexities – just like a harmonious family.
For guests who prefer a more traditional take on these classic cakes, Four Seasons Hotel Beijing will also offer traditional mooncake flavours, including egg yolk with red bean, chestnut sugar free, pumpkin, Chinese yam with osmanthus flavour, red lotus and egg yolk sugar free, and hawthorn Beijing-style. Mooncake hampers are even more special, bringing together a clutch of delicacies from around the country, including lotus seeds, red dates, XO sauce, Iberico ham, Cantonese sausage, macarons (9 pieces), French red wine, tea box and one box of chocolate mooncakes (4 pieces).
Four Seasons Hotel Beijing will donate two percent of the revenue from this year’s total mooncake sales to Educating Girls of Rural China, an organisation that offers financial support to girls and young women pursuing an education in Gansu province.
