Christmas festive goodies with local flavours?
This is something different. The Roasted Turkeys, NEW log cake flavours and Christmas bundles from Pacific Marketplace can be the next talking point for your celebration meals.
Pacific Marketplace at Pan Pacific Singapore has introduced 3 NEW Log Cake flavours – Chendol Log Cake, Chocolate Matcha Cherry Morello Log Cake and Araguani Frambosie Crunchy Log Cake.
There are also other cakes and pastries handcrafted by Pastry Chef Eddy Yau and team, who have introduced an East-meets-West collection the last quarter of this year.
Among the new collection, look out for the fragrant Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake.
I love my Nyonya food, but still didn’t quite expect this. Also making a debut is the NEW Peranakan Roasted Turkey. And can I add it is at a mega 4-5 kg, that will be THE centerpiece for the dining table.
That is not all, the roasted turkey will be served with Nasi Kunyit (turmeric rice) and pickled vegetables.
These are some of the highlights of the Festive Goodies and Cakes Galore at Pacific Marketplace:
Chendol Log Cake ($68, 1 kg)
If you are looking at a log cake that is unconventional, yet pleases the crowd – look no further.
This newly introduced Chendol Log Cake when cut through, will reveal beautiful layers of gula melaka mousse, red beans, coconut panna cotta and pandan sponge.
After trying, I thought that it reminded me of a cross between my favourite nyonya kueh-kueh and the actual chendol dessert with the addition of ample red beans.
Chocolate Matcha Morello Cherry Log Cake ($68, 1kg)
This is the log cake to bring to your office or family meals because it is both attractive and tasty.
All right, because there is MATCHA too.
The cake is not too sweet, has a firm yet smooth mousse texture, with a good balance between the chocolate and matcha. I shared this and everyone liked it.
Araguani Framboise Crunchy Log Cake ($68, 1kg)
Pastry Chef Eddy has a keen interest in chocolate, and has designed this Araguani Framboise Crunchy Log Cake, with a strikingly bittersweet essence of 72% dark chocolate.
Additionally, it has a delightful crunchy base.
Peranakan Roasted Turkey, served with Nasi Kunyit and vegetable pickles ($168 for 4 – 5 kg turkey)
The Peranakan food items are created by the in-house Peranakan Chef (who also whips up amazing dishes and home-made sauces at the Nyonya counter at Edge).
The NEW Peranakan Roasted Turkey is served with Nasi Kunyit (turmeric rice) and Achar (pickled vegetables), great for those who enjoy Asian spices.
Heritage Christmas Bundle ($268)
If you are thinking of getting all the food as a bundle, you can order the fuss-free Heritage Bundle Set which includes Peranakan Roasted Turkey with Nasi Kunyit (turmeric rice) and vegetable pickles, Nyonya Popiah of fresh spring rolls with braised turnips and minced turkey, complete with the sweet treat of Chendol Log Cake.
Traditional Christmas Bundle ($168 for 4-5kg turkey, $298 for bundle)
For a juicy and flavourful turkey treat, also available is the Traditional Roasted Turkey with chorizo-cornbread stuffing (contains pork) (4-5kg), winter vegetables, giblet gravy, and cranberry sauce.
The convenient Traditional Christmas Bundle also includes a Honey Glazed Ham with spiced pineapple marmalade (2kg), and Araguani Framboise Crunchy Log Cake.
Good to know: All the Christmas hams are handmade by the Master Butcher and team, and all hams, sausages and cold cuts sold contain no preservatives or fillers.
Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake ($15)
Other than the Christmas log cakes, there is a NEW selection of cakes, tarts and other pastries handcrafted by the pastry team.
What I will recommend is the fragrant and so-fluffy Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake. If you are a tourist, or intend to get a representative cake from Singapore to friends overseas, this Pandan Cake will make a great choice.
The chiffon cake is made by using fresh juice extracted from pandan leaves, added with authentic Gula Melaka (palm sugar) from Malacca.
What I also liked were the additional mini gula melaka droppers, which you could drip for added caramel-like sweetness.
Matcha Yuzu Lychee Entremet ($58 per cake of 1kg, $7 per slice)
Apart from the Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake, the 3 NEW whole cake flavours are the Matcha Yuzu Lychee Entremet, Strawberry Pistachio Shortcake and Araguani Hazelnut Royaltine Entremet, alongside the signature Blueberry Cheesecake.
The Matcha Yuzu Lychee Entremet has a light Japanese slant, incorporating quality matcha powder in the mousse, balanced with tangy and fruity flavours of the yuzu crème and lychee curd.
Strawberry Pistachio Shortcake ($58, 1kg)
The classic strawberry shortcake is given a spin with fluffy pistachio sponge, complemented by smooth whipped cream and a ring of fresh strawberries.
A lower sugar option is also available upon special request.
Black Forest Gâteau ($8 per slice), Lime Tart ($7 per slice)
Sliced cakes are available for dining in or takeaways. Highlights include the gorgeously glazed Black Forest Gâteau, a dome-shaped cake with dark chocolate mousse, kirsch panna cotta and Morello cherry compote.
Other favourites include the Lime Tart of zesty lime cream in a buttery shortcrust pastry, Gula Melaka Caramel Banana Gâteau, and the Banana Cheesecake.
