Durian lovers, durian season comes early this year at the annual Durian Fiesta at Goodwood Park Hotel!
Back for its 34th run, the event celebrates all things durian, giving the King of Fruit the honour it rightly deserves.
This year’s festivities stretches from 10 March to 31 July, boasting a total of 14 premium confections featuring the creamy, pungent fruit as their hero ingredient–specifically those of the Mao Shan Wang and D24 varieties.
While old favourites like the D24 mousse cake, puffs and crepes will be present, 6 brand new creations have also been added to the list.
These new creations are made with inventive ingredients like charcoal, sunflower seeds, matcha and even salted caramel–not flavours you typically see mixed with durian!
The result are desserts that are not only easy on the eyes, they’re also exciting and pleasing to the palate.
Look forward to the D24 ‘Starry Starry Night’ Ice Cream Cake, where a charcoal sponge surrounds a dense core of homemade durian ice cream.
Also on the menu are the D24 Fried Sesame Balls–crispy, chewy sesame balls with fresh, rich durian mousse piped into them.
Other items on the extensive durian catalog include the crunchy, rich D24 sunflower seed and cashew nut crumble tartlets, a light, fluffy D24 matcha cake, as well as the perfectly sweet-and-salty D24 salted caramel cuppa.
Take note that not all these desserts are available yet, as they will be released progressively. New desserts will be released every other month so it won’t hurt to drop the guys at Goodwood Park Hotel a call to check if what you’re looking for is available!
