Durian Puff at Shangri-la's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa Penang

It's that time of the year where durian lovers get to enjoy their favourite fruit, Durian which is also known as the king of fruits. Shangri-la's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa surely didn't miss out of using durian into their culinary creation for this year too. Back then, it was burger with durian and this time around, they are delighted to introduced their specially made Durian Puffs. These delightful melt-in-your-mouth treats are now available until Sept 2017 at Rasa Deli.

Durian lovers, start drooling :)

The delicious treat was created by Executive Pastry Chef Dino Wan and his pastry team who had gone through a handful of attempts in order to create the best possible pastry and cream combination that captures bold durian flavours encased by cream puff pastry.

It was an instant hit among loyal customers and guest. The aroma was mild but when you sink your teeth into it and the oozing cream of durian just pampers your palate away.

The best part of it is that, it ain't no any ordinary durian that is used, but Musang King varieties.
Its preparation takes place in a controlled room temperature so that the taste of real durian is retained. Besides the finest fresh ingredients, the durian cream filling also comprises bread flour, brown sugar, a pinch of salt, unsalted butter, water, milk and eggs. Filtered water is used since it is softer than less acidic, which in turn gives the durian cream filing a molten texture.

A lot of constant whipping is required to create its creamy and silky characteristics. The puff are baked in the pastry kitchen using plain and bread flour for a smooth, soft texture with a spongy taste.

According to Chef Dino, “We have been selling an average of 150 durian cream puff a day and purchases are mainly walk-in customers who learned about it by word of mouth. The Durian Cream Puff promotion will be on until end of September. 

You can enjoy these delicious Durian Puff for only RM 8nett per piece and I am pretty sure one piece wouldn't be enough to satisfy. The best part is you only pay RM 20nett for 3 pieces.
The Durian Puffs are best taken slightly cold so that you get the feeling of biting into pastry with bursting smooth cream.”

So head up to Shangri-la's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa before the end of Sept to enjoy this mouth-watering dessert. If you love Durian, then you shouldn't miss out on this.
