Have an Auspicious and Prosperous Lunar New Year with Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

December 19, 2022,
Hong Kong, China

To mark the Year of the Rabbit - known as the luckiest animal out of all twelve Chinese zodiacs - Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong unveils a wealth of auspicious experiences and tantalizing treats for sharing good fortune and blessings.

Good Fortune Puddings

Guaranteed crowd-pleasers, four exquisite New Year puddings from three-Michelin-starred Lung King Heen will be complementing the festivals, including a new Water Chestnut Pudding with Lotus Roots and Snow Dates (HKD 508) that reinvents the traditional pudding by elevating its flavour and texture with snow dates and lotus roots. A sweet, light, and refreshing creation, the recipe features the finest Pan Tang water chestnut powder and large, handpicked snow dates that are not soaked in water to preserve their best flavours. During preparation, the temperature of the pudding is meticulously monitored by the chef to ensure precision and achieve optimal texture.

Popular with adults and children alike, the delectable Lunar New Year Pudding with Coconut Milk (HKD 508), a Lung King Heen tradition since the restaurant’s inception in 2005, returns this year. For savoury options, the Abalone and Turnip Pudding with Conpoy (HKD 628) adds an element of surprise to the customary turnip pudding by introducing two South African abalones - one is diced and mixed into the turnip paste while the other is placed atop the pudding. A higher proportion of turnip is used and prepared in thick slices for a substantial mouthfeel, which is accentuated by the umami from premium dried shrimp, mushrooms, and dried scallops from Sōya, Japan.

Taro Pudding with Black Truffle and Air-dried Meat (HKD 628) balances a golden ratio of air-dried meat, mushrooms, and black truffle, a recipe devised by the chef after dedicated trial and error. Mushrooms are also carefully fried before being added to the pudding for a more aromatic experience.

All Lunar New Year puddings are handmade by chefs at the three-Michelin-starred Lung King Heen.

Lunar New Year puddings are available to order online from December 19, 2022 to January 21, 2023 or until stock lasts.

Poon Choi For All

A time-honoured tradition, poon choi makes for an obligatory communal feast reserved for this time of year. Conceived by Executive Chinese Chef Chan Yan Tak, the Four Seasons Poon Choi (HKD 4,288) designed for groups of four persons boasts a curated selection of 16 ingredients, including dried fish maw, South African abalone, dried scallops, and Chinese mushroom. Barbequed “siu mei” delicacies include roast goose and poached chicken from Lung King Heen, topped with stir-fried salted egg yolk shrimp, which feature a festive gold colour.
