Sheraton Taipei Hotel introduces exclusive mid-autumn gift boxes

The Sheraton Taipei Hotel is renowned for its 100% handmade moon cakes for Mid-Autumn Festival. Gold medalist pastry chef Huang Fu-shou, winner of many international dessert competitions and a judge at the 2009 World Pastry Cup in Lyon, France, has once again released a range of classic and new 100% handmade moon cake flavors that are baked to perfection. This year's range of Mid-Autumn Festival gift boxes includes the Cantonese Moon Cake (NT$980), the Classic Moon Cake (NT$890) and the Egg Yolk Pastry (NT$720). Pre-orders will be accepted from August 3. Higher discounts apply to larger orders, and free refrigerated delivery is also available.
For this year's "Cantonese Moon Cake Gift Box" (6 cakes), the pastry chef offers a unique combination of thin crust and rich filling in a handmade pastry. The four classic flavors are Lotus Seed with Double Egg Yolk, X.O. Paste with Egg Yolk, Palm Date Paste with Walnut, and Green Tea Paste with Double Marron.
New flavors are Mixed-nut with Egg Yolk (made with the Dragon Restaurant's signature roasted pork with an accompaniment of pine seeds, olive seeds, pineapple seeds, walnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts) and Lotus Seed with Brown Cane Sugar Marron (made with a filling of brown cane sugar from Okinawa, renowned as the chocolate of the Orient, lotus seeds and sweet chestnuts.
The "Classic Moon Cake Gift Box" (1 large, 8 small) not only contains the four classic flavors (lotus seed paste with double egg yolk, palm date paste with walnut, X.O. paste with egg yolk and tea paste with double marron) but also includes the new Black Teas Paste with Cheese flavor. The filling is made with autumn-ripened longan fruit, Taiwanese black tea and cheese. The fresh longan meat is good for health and offers more variety in holiday gifts for guests.
Another of Sheraton's best-sellers is the "Egg Yolk Pastry Gift Box" (10 pieces) containing Lotus Seed with Egg Yolk, Palm Date Paste with Egg Yolk, and X.O. Paste with Egg Yolk.
The all new gift box packaging released this year follows an Oriental theme linked with romantic Western mythology that reflects a design philosophy of acceptance and tolerance. For the Cantonese Moon Cake, glossy indigo cotton and walnut-colored Dutch cloth convey the dreams and blessings associated with the Blue Moon in the West; for the Classic Moon Cake and Egg Yolk Pastry, Oxford cover paper and canvas note paper are used to express the rich golden color of autumn fields. The spine is decorated with free-flowing Chinese calligraphy to perfectly emphasize the modern Oriental elegance captured in this gift box.
