Salted Egg Yolk Chinese New Year Goodies 2016

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

This year’s hype got to be Salted Egg Yolk, that’s why I have decided to come up with all the goodies I have received this month. The brands are Peony Jade, Pies & Coffee, and lastly the Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips from Vivienne.

Kickstarted my Chinese New Year munching with Peony Jade’s traditional home-made prosperity nyonya cookies, Salted Egg Yolk Cookies and Almond Flakes with Goji Berries Cookies [$32.88/tin each]. These two are among the new flavours available this year, the other flavours includes Butter Coffee Caramel, Fragrant Lychee and Lemongrass Cereal Prawn Cookies.

The Salted Egg Yolk ones are soft and crumbling which melts in your mouth, and it comes with a subtle Salted Egg Yolk flavour, definitely my pick! On the other hand, Almond Flakes with Goji Berries ones are crunchy with pieces of chewy goji berries. The freshly hand-crafted cookies and pastries are now available at Takashimaya’s annual Lunar New Year Festive Market at B2’s atrium until 7 February 2016.

On top of the cookies, Peony Jade has come up with a selection of 2016 Chinese New Year artful creations, takeaways and menus from 14 January to 22 February 2016, at the Keppel Club and Clarke Quay branches.

Introducing Pies & Coffee’s Chinese New Year cookies in Salted Egg Yolk, Parmesan Cheese, Green Pea Cashew, and Pineapple Parmesan Tarts. These cookies can be purchase individually or as a bundle, the sample platter I received consist of all four flavours together. Salted Egg Yolk and Green Pea Cashew ones pleases my palette more :)

- Salted Egg Yolk Cookies [$22 | approx. 420g] are made with butter pastry, corn flour and morsels of salted eggs, the cookies are flavourful and fragrant. Slight hint of Salted Egg Yolk flavour and melts in your mouth texture, yet crunchy on the first bite.
- Parmesan Cheese Cookies [$22 | approx. 360g] are traditional butter cookies baked with egg yolk and parmesan cheese, both of which lend a robust flavour and boasting a crisp and ethereal texture. This is meant for those who fancy parmesan cheese.
- Green Pea Cashew Cookies [$22 | approx. 460g] are made from roasted green peas and cashew nuts. A very nutty texture with traces of real green pea bits.
- Pineapple Parmesan Tarts [$22 | approx. 450g] are homemade tarts with chewy pineapple fillings and parmesan cheese, enlivened with aromatic spices and then hand-rolled into a soft butter pastry, that’s why you’ll need to pop the whole piece into your mouth to prevent falling crumbs.

The Happiness Bundle [$38.80 | approx. 820g in square boxes] and Prosperity Bundle [$78.80 | approx. 1.6kg in round boxes] are packed with all four cookies for the ultimate enjoyment. Coming in an exquisite package that befits the Lunar New Year spirit.

The brand goes by “re-imagination of the ever-popular, traditional Asian flavour that is synonymous with dishes served at festivities, banquets and celebrations.” All products are hand-crafted by their chefs daily so we can only taste the freshest Taiwanese flavour and culture.

This Gourmet Taiwanese Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips [$7 | Single-serve foil packet] are made using the oh-so-addictive Taiwanese Salted Egg recipe which includes curry leaves, hence expect a little spiciness at the aftertaste. It is then coated onto hand-crafted potato crisps and baked to golden perfection. Single-serve foil packet for personal indulgence, best consumed within four weeks but once opened try to finish it within a week or less (even though it’s resealable) if not it’ll lose the freshness. Thank you Vivienne for sharing this goodness with me!
You can get yours via their website now.
