Apart from sampling the moon cakes, Chef Wu Chee Keong demonstrated the steps in making a snow skin moon cake.

First, flatten the ball of dough into a patty.

Next, slowly wrap the ball filling up.

Gently mold the edges to enclose the filling and seal it up.

Dust a thin layer of flour into the mould and press the filled dough firmly into the mould to get the shape of the moon cake.

Then, tap lightly on the left and right to dislodge it.

Tada! It might looked deceptively simple but believe me, a lot of effort goes into a single perfect moon cake.

In addition to the overall moon cakes experience, we were lucky to sample several dishes from West Lake Garden specially prepared for us. Braised Scallop with Crab Meat in Sweet Corn Broth Drizzled with Truffle Oil, it was light with a gentle sweetness from the corn broth and the decadent drizzle of truffle oil at the end absolutely made this soup luxurious.

Crispy Ginger Steamed Cod Fish, fresh and velvety smooth cod fish with a wonderful fragrance from the light soy sauce and crispy deep-fried ginger.

Crispy Noodles with Tiger Prawn. Surprisingly, the crispy noodles which soaked up the gravy were unusually good and almost stole the show away from the fresh tiger prawn.
