Durian Fiesta 2021: 6 Luscious Desserts to Savour This Year
We’re already in the month of March, and for durian lovers, this marks the return of Goodwood Park Hotel’s annual Durian Fiesta. Harvest must be really good this year as the celebrations run from March to August 1. And just like the previous years, the hotel’s pastry chefs have created a mouth-watering collection of new and signature durian pastries using the premium D24 and Mao Shan Wang varieties.
Can’t wait to savour the King of Fruits? Here are six offerings available at The Deli to get you started.

1/6 D24 Mousse Cake
This has been an all-time favourite since it made its debut in 1983. This year, the chefs have created a luxurious adaptation of the original cake, which comes with generous lashings of pulpy durian mousse.
2/6 D24 Puff
Another classic that sees bountiful swirls of durian filling sandwiched between fluffy choux pastries. They may be small in size but one is enough to satiate your durian cravings.
3/6 D24 Trio Chocolate Cake
Durian and chocolate fans, this one's for you. Indulge in this luscious masterpiece, featuring a crunchy base of hazelnut feuilletine and seven layers of dark, milk, and white chocolate mousse, D24 durian mousse and chocolate sponge. Finished with a dark chocolate glaze, dark chocolate feathers and tuile.

4/6 D24 Pandan Waffle Cake
We all love waffles as an afternoon snack such as this warm and pillowy pandan-flavoured treat is slathered with decadent D24 pulp. It is served with a generous drizzle of caramelised coconut sauce and crowned with gula melaka coconut crumble and coconut flakes.

6/6 D24 Durian Combo
Why have one dessert when you can have six? And this combo is a collection of three new flavours (D24 trio chocolate cake, mini D24 salted caramel delight, D24 & sweet potato in chestnut tartlet) and perennial favourites (D24 mousse cake, D24 puff, and D24 crêpe).
