Grand Imperial Restaurant Reveals Asian-inspired Easter
Released on: April 11, 2011, 2:51 pm
Grand Imperial London has put a spin on authentic Hong Kong
cuisine by creating a collection of exquisite chocolate dim sum
dumplings - ideal for chocolate lovers looking to indulge in an Easter
celebration with Asian flair.
Each crispy dumpling is freshly prepared and filled with a warm silky chocolate
sauce made with 70% cacao. The platter comes with four individual parcels; the
crispy 'Canton Cracker' pastry, the 'Pumpkin Bundle', a miniature pumpkin made
with pumpkin essence and lemon zest, the 'Cashew Crescent', a half moon pastry
topped with cashew nuts and icing sugar and the 'Coconut Doughnut' rolled in
coconut shavings and tangerine zest.
These delectable chocolate infused dumplings are the work of art of Grand Imperial’s
Head Chef Leung and dim sum Chef Sai Feng Zeng.
Grand Imperial's Head Chef Leung says: "We enjoy bringing a touch of contemporary
flair to all our authentic dishes here at Grand Imperial. We Chinese have quite a
sweet tooth and we love our Green Tea Puddings and Warm Custard Tarts. Making
chocolate dim sum was a great way to combine all the expert practices used to create
our traditional dim sum recipes, but using a universal sweet treat such as
chocolate, and we thought there was no better time to launch this than for the
forthcoming Easter holidays."
The restaurant in London Victoria, located within
landmark heritage hotel, The Grosvenor, also offers guests an assortment of
delicately prepared savoury dim sum as well as other Cantonese specialties
beautifully prepared by Chinese culinary genius Chef Leung in authentic Hong Kong
style and contemporary flourish.
Grand Imperial's mixed chocolate dim sum platter is available now. Each parcel is
also available individually in servings of three.
