Thanks to the invitation from Klang Executive Club, I recently got the opportunity to learn the traditions of mooncake making by dim sum chef David Yeoh through an exclusive media session that was held at Toh Yuen Chinese Restaurant.
Upholding the rich culture of the mid-autumn festival, and valuing the good practices and customs usually orchestrated at this special time of the year, the Klang Executive Club brings deep understanding to the world of mooncakes, of what it represents and the intricate work behind the sweetened encasing dough that is filled with nuts, yolk, sweet lotus paste and other delectable ingredients.
“The mooncake festival is very unique, and the culture that embodies this festival is all about thanksgiving, gathering and praying, which is why the mooncake and its details signifies important elements that we should understand in order to grasp the meaning of the festival,” said Chief Executive Chef Tee Leong Sin.
He added “The elaborate work of making a mooncake, though it seems simple, involves creative thoughts, ideas, and understanding of flavours, that all adds up to symbolising a certain something. Unlocking this beautiful culture, illustrates its association to many cultural chronicles which we believe in the Chinese culture, leading us to many legends and messages”.
According to Chef Tee, the Snow Skin Dragon Fruits mooncake is the best-seller at Toh Yuen, among mooncake lovers. Snow skin mooncake is a non-baked mooncake which is commonly eaten cold and fresh. It has elastic, chewy and soft skin. Other mooncakes such as the famously known, Red Bean Moon Cake, Lotus Seed Single Yolk (yolk represents the full moon) and other popular choices are sold from RM10.50 (per head) till RM66 for a box set.
Held at KEC’s Toh Yuen Restaurant, that serves authentic Cantonese specialities, Chief Executive Chef Tee prepared a scrumptious array of dishes that embodies the Mid-Autumn festival, highlighting the momentous cultural experience with the mooncake making demonstration.
The Klang Executive Club, known to be the established sports and leisure venue at Bandar BaruKlang, offers culinary delights to residents in and around Klang Valley; especially at its Toh Yuen Chinese restaurant with the talented Chef Tee overseeing preparation of authentic Chinese recipes, wedding receptions or a simple gathering of family reunion dinners, making it all a memorable event.
