Goodwood Park Hotel’s famed Durian Fiesta is finally back with iconic favourites & new interesting creations like the D24 Paris Brest, Pineapple-Lime Zest Dome & more decadent durian treats

by Marcus Leong

As a durian lover myself, I am always excited to check out Goodwood Park Hotel’s Durian Fiesta and stuff my face silly with their signature durian-centric sweet treats. This year, Goodwood Park Hotel is pulling out all the stops to commemorate the fiesta’s 40th birthday with a give-month-long celebration from 6 March to 6 August 2023. Where my fellow durian lovers at?

The feasting and festivities kick off with an exquisite line-up of decadent durian desserts from the hotel’s pastry chefs. The icons of the Durian Fiesta – ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Power Puff (S$33) and ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Mousse Cake (from S$90) – will also be making an appearance at this year’s event. However, in true icon fashion, they will only be around for a limited time from 1 May 2023 to 6 August 2023.

Also making a glorious comeback are some of the crowd favourites like the D24 Mousse Cake (from S$19), D24 Ice Cream Tub (S$26), and ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Ice Cream Tub (S$42). I am particularly excited for the D24 Crêpe (from S$19) and D24 Puff (from S$36)

Sorry folks, unlike past years, there won’t be a buffet spread. Instead, there will be some new durian-centric creations by the hotel’s pastry chefs making their debut.

The first highlight of this year is the D24 Pandan Coconut Gula Melaka Cake (from S$20), which is a zhng-ed up version of the hotel’s D24 Pandan & Coconut Cake (that was first released in 2005). The cake combines the deliciousness of coconut gula melaka cake with the richness of D24 mousse. Brace yourself for a medley of aromas and flavours with every mouthful.

Another highlight of Goodwood Park Hotel’s Durian Fiesta is the D24 Paris Brest (S$22) which is inspired by the classic French pastry. As its name suggests, the French-inspired pastry swaps out the praline vanilla cream centre for a D24 mousse. It is then finished with an aesthetically piped crown of hazelnut cream and a sprinkle of hazelnut and almond shaving.

The team at Goodwood Park has also come up with an interesting D24 Pineapple-Lime Zest Dome (S$22) that combines the creamy goodness of D24 mousse with the fragrance of pineapple mousse and pineapple glaze. Top it off with lime zest, a dollop of Chantilly cream, and white chocolate hazelnut base, and you get a combination I do find a lil perplexing but well, to each his own I guess.

Other unique creations to look out for are the D24 Honeyed Pear Mousse Bliss (S$22) and the Mini D24 Chocolate Ganache Almond Delight (S$39). The former contains a dash of alcohol, diced William pears, chopped pistachios and edible flowers. The latter features a generous serving of D24 mousse wedged between two housemade chocolate ladyfingers, dusted with icing sugar and crunchy chopped almonds.
