Spend a meaningful and heartwarming time this Chinese New Year, enjoying delicious festive delicacies handcrafted by the masterful chefs at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore for a memorable and abundant start to the New Year.
Festive Takeaways (orders accepted now through February 17, 2015)
Luxury Yusheng (SGD 1,688, yusheng for 25 people)
Share well wishes with loved ones, and greet business associates with good fortune. A unique Lunar New Year practice in Singapore and some parts of Asia, the yusheng (also known as lo hei) is symbolic of abundance and success (its Cantonese name means “prosperity toss”), and a must-do for everyone here in the sunny Garden City.
This year, Four Seasons Hotel Singapore launches its exclusive luxury yusheng, which also comes with a vintage wine. Specially designed with a lively goat emblem that also depicts 2015,
it includes premium delicacies such as lobster, abalone, bird’s nest, surf clams, salmon, rice in gold leaf, homemade plum sauce and passion fruit sauce, as well as an additional secret sauce recipe from Executive Chef Alan Chan.
To further sweeten the year, it also comes with a vintage Dom Pérignon Rosé Champagne from Year of the Goat 2003 (730 ml), giving toast to the beautiful past and even an rosier future.
Yusheng (SGD 76 small, for 5-6 people; SGD 108 large, for 10 people)
Toss in good fortune with the Hotel’s signature salmon yusheng, a best-selling favourite that comes with more than 20 ingredients including salmon slices, crispy vermicelli, red beetroot, fried shredded yam, radish and tossed in homemade plum sauce, passion fruit sauce and pineapple paste with delectable crackers. Guests can also add on additional ingredients including premium items such as poached Boston lobster at SGD 48 per plate.
Peng Cai (SGD 388 for 6 people; SGD 538 for 10 people)
Tracing back its history to the late Song dynasty, the peng cai has been around for more than 100 years.
Enjoy the Hotel’s delectable pen cai featuring a huge variety of 18 ingredients, including 10-head abalone, fish maw, conpoy, sea cucumber, roast duck, roast pork, black moss, prawn, soy chicken, preserved pork and black mushroom, as well as Executive Chef Alan Chan’s special gravy recipe that is slow-cooked for more than 8 hours with secret ingredients.
Prosperity Hampers and Festive Takeaways
Perfect for corporate giving or family gifting, the Hotel’s elegant prosperity hampers are a beautiful way to deliver blessings for the New Year. Featuring festive favourites such as pineapple tarts and dried scallop, as well as chef-crafted homemade XO chili sauce and more, regular hampers are available for order at SGD 368 and deluxe hampers at SGD 688.
Other festive takeaways include the exclusively-designed nian gao (sticky rice cakes). Meant to bring good luck to the eater (it sounds like “higher year” in Chinese), legend is that the nian gao was fed to the kitchen god by humans so that his mouth would get stuck and he wouldn’t bad mouth them to the jade emperor.
AtFour Seasons Hotel Singapore, different flavours and designs are available, including nian gao designed in the shape of gold-flaked rainbow fish (at SGD 33 for 2 nian gao fishes) to symbolize abundance for the new year.
