The Ritz-Carlton

The Mid-Autumn festival is one of the most important festivals celebrated in Chinese culture, as the full moon is at its brightest and roundest on this day and perfectly symbolizes union. For this year’s festival, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau has curated The Ritz-Carlton, Macau Autumn Moon Treasure Box, featuring mooncakes of the well-loved flavors presented in exceptionally exquisite boxes. Available now until October 4, 2017, this year’s seasonal treats are the best gifts for expressing gratitude and love, while reveling in the spirit of reunion together.

Recognized at the highest level for its fine craftsmanship and culinary excellence, Lai Heen at The Ritz-Carlton, Macau presents The Ritz-Carlton, Macau Autumn Moon Treasure Box for guests to revisit well-loved flavors, including “Mini Egg Custard Mooncake” and “Mini Purple Sweet Potato Mooncake with Chestnut”, both of which are expertly created to establish a perfect balance of smooth, delectable textured filling in a light and delicate pastry. The petite mooncakes are housed in individual boxes, which sit neatly in a beige chest decorated with elegant floral design. Peachy-pink peonies symbolize prosperity, nasturtiums and roses present sincerity and gratitude, with Goldfinch and European robin chirping to each other serving as a symbol of harmony and accord. The wreath forms a perfect circle, bearing a sweet resemblance with the full moon – a metaphor for unity and completeness highlighting the spirit of happiness and family reunion.
