SINGAPORE (Mar 30): Goodwood Park Hotel’s annual Durian Fiesta returns today with a total of 12 premium D24 and “Mao Shan Wang” durian creations, featuring perennial favourites such as the D24 Mousse Cake ($13 per slice; $69-$190 for 1-3kg cakes) and its signature D24 Puff ($9-42 for 2-10 pieces) alongside entirely new creations by the hotel’s pastry chefs.

New to the D24 line-up this year is a White Chocolate Raspberry Dome (Featured in main image; $13 nett for two pieces, $36 nett for six), a biscuit-based tart dressed up in a garland of tangy dried raspberry bits around a white chocolate mousse dome encasing the pulp.

Those craving a cup of Joe will delight in the Coffee Glaze cake ($14 nett per slice, $78 nett per whole 1.2kg cake) that stars alternating layers of pure D24 pulp and coffee sponge cake, made into a work of art with its shimmery coffee glaze surface enlivened by a white chocolate streak for a marbled effect.

We find the Orange Choc-A-Bloc ($16 nett per slice) an especially promising crowd favourite with its chewy textures and robust flavours. A complementary mixture of D24 pulp and orange mousse is layered atop a shortcrust base dotted with walnuts and raisins in this novel original, before it is coated with a generous drizzle of white chocolate and topped with toasted almond nibs, candied orange peel, and a chocolate curl as the garnish.

Look forward to feasting upon a number these goodies at the ever-popular Dessert buffet with D24 durian pastries held over lunch and dinner seatings at the Coffee Lounge from 5 May to 22 July, from $38.80++ per person for the dessert buffet only. Alternatively, a free flow of these desserts can be enjoyed as a top-up with any a la carte main course order, the Taiwan Porridge A La Carte Buffet, or as part of a three- or four-course Design Your Own Local Degustation Menu at various other price options.

Another special is the exclusive “Mao Shan Wang” Power Puff ($19.80 nett per piece): a jumbo-sized profiterole that is made to order and strictly available from 12-7pm from 12 May to 22 July. This comes alongside the luxurious “Mao Shan Wang” adaptation of the hotel’s trademark D24 Durian Mousse Cake, available at $69 nett for 500g.
