Once seated, and cooled down with an aromatic cold towel, you will be presented with a pretty pastel coloured miniature traditional Thai pantry, brought to your table and filled with sweet and savoury goodness, all lovingly created by Chef Yanisa ‘Khwan’ Wiangnon, the resort’s pastry chef. Featuring all of the latest seasonal fruits – and ‘tis the season right now, with an abundance of lychee, longan, rambutan, mango, durian and juicy oranges – this mouthwatering selection will have you spoilt for choice.
Start off with a cooling passion fruit sorbet with its sweet and sour flavours bursting through each delicious lick, before launching into the orange milk chocolate cake, a Lilliputian little bite which mimics a little Mandarin orange in looks and oozes tart citrus when cut open. Stay refreshed with the lychee mini cake of mousse white chocolate-covered French waffles wrapped around fresh nibbles of lychee. Another delightful dish we had never tried before is the rambutan panna cotta, a tropical twist to the famed Piedmont dessert as well as the distinctly sweet longan scone which you can slather with strawberry jam and dollops of cream. If this isn’t tempting enough, then a must try is the durian salted cheese tart which blends the rich creamy and rather pungent durian with French cream cheese – another surprisingly successful fusion.
For some savoury bites, dig into the mango shrimp roll filled with sexy mango salsa sauce which spills out of each crunchy bite. The salmon soufflé with young coconut is also successful dish which arrives aromatic fresh out f the oven.
