by Matarromera  by Dion Trading Ltd   $180

鴻運年糕 Chinese Sticky Rice Cake

作為鴻星春節榚點最受歡迎的美食之一。年糕本來就有著團圓滿足的寓意,而且以椰汁製作,每一口香甜淡麗,不會過甜的而產生膩感。可加椰絲配搭,增添風味和口感,煎香更顯特色。

One of the most popular Lunar New Year delicacies of Super Star Group. The Chinese Sticky Rice Cake symbolizes family reunion in Chinese tradition. The soft, delicate cake is made with coconut milk to give you each mouthful of sweetness and smooth coconut fragrance without being too sugary. You may embellish the cake with some desiccated coconut, or simply put it in the frying pan to achieve a crunchy texture.

Dion Trading Ltd向來將葡萄酒視如藝術品,遍尋有意思的佳釀,例如這瓶Rosé,是酒莊的新產品,以VerdejoSauvignong BlancTempranillo釀製,混釀出清淡、新鮮,有著豐富果香的甜美芳香葡萄酒。淡麗的酒配上淡麗的年糕,恰到好處。因為年糕始終給予人膩感,而以豐富果香,良好酸度的清淡Rosé就能夠中和、減低膩感,兩者味覺上也相輔相承。

Dion Trading Ltd sees wine as a work of art. Aiming to present the best artwork to audience, they pursue the best wine in the world for your enjoyment. As the new product of the vineyard, this Rosé is blended with Verdejo, Sauvignong Blac and Tempranillo. The result is a clear, refreshing, fruity wine which makes a great pairing with Sticky Rice Cake. Not only do both elements complement each other, the fresh acidity of the wine also helps balance the sugar in the cake, round out the flavors in your mouth so that you can enjoy your next bite.
