Just a whiff is all you need to realise that the durian season is almost around the corner.
At Goodwood Park Hotel, the King of Fruits is once again celebrated with much pomp and pageantry.
From 10 Mar to 31 July, the annual Durian Fiesta returns with a spread of 14 premium confections – out of which six are new.
In fact, all items are crafted using a selection of quality D24 and Mao Shan Wang durians, in case any durian connoisseur’s reading this.
This year, the addition of ingredients like charcoal, sunflower seeds, salted caramel and matcha, add an extra dimension of texture and flavour to the pungent fruit.
Here are five new desserts to try:
1. D24 ‘Starry Starry Night’ Ice Cream Cake, $13 per slice; from $33 for 350g cake
The most photogenic of the lot, the D24 ‘Starry Starry Night’ Ice Cream Cake consists of charcoal sponge wrapped around a core of homemade durian ice cream. While more dense than creamy, this cake is packed with fibrous durian flesh and makes a thoroughly delicious chilled treat.
Available from 10 Mar to 31 Jul; takeaway at The Deli.
