Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng of The Fullerton Hotel’s Jade Restaurant is introducing his SG50 Nostalgic Feast Menu inspired by traditional Cantonese dishes from the ’70’s and ’80s. The menu is curated in partnership with Wong Ah Yoke, the highly respected restaurant reviewer and food critic at The Straits Times.
His elevated interpretation of the Chinese Eight Treasures Duck (八宝糯米鸭) is marinated overnight and stuffed with eight gastronomic indulgences: dry scallop, salted egg yolk, mushroom, lotus seeds, ginkgo, Chinese sausage, roast pork and glutinous rice. Another Cantonese classic is the Pan-Fried King Prawns with Special Sauce (干煎大虾碌), a simple yet delicious recipe. The prawns are marinated with salt and dark soya sauce, seared in a wok, then coated in Chinese barbecue sauce, tomato ketchup and sesame oil.
The menu also features other old-time favourites such as the Crispy Kung Pao Chicken with Cashew Nuts (佛莲砵腰果鸡丁). The center of crispy yet velvety yam ring has a filling of cashew nuts and chicken stir-fried with Kung Pao. Master Chef Leong’s Steamed Layered Cake with Salted Egg and Nuts (果仁千层糕) is soft and pillowy. It boasts alternating layers of salted egg yolk and coconut custard interwoven with pine nuts and macadamia.
With the launch of the menu, Master Chef Leong will also host his first personal art exhibition entitled Ceramics Indulgence (陶然食在) from 4 to 29 June. It will showcase more than 30 of his skillfully handcrafted traditional and contemporary ceramic pieces. In the spirit of this special occasion, all proceeds raised from the sale of the pieces will be donated to Autism Resource Centre to support its mission of helping individuals with an autism spectrum disorder maximise their potential in life through advocacy and provision of services in education, employment and empowering of family caregivers and professionals.
As part of his upcoming exhibition, he has hand-picked a selection of pottery and porcelain pieces that reflect his love for nature. Many of these ceramics incorporate organic textures like tree bark, foliage and rocks in hues of jade green to represent trees, brown for the earth and cerulean blue to symbolize the sea. The first 50 guests to place their reservations at the restaurant during the exhibition period will receive a complimentary one-of-a-kind handmade ceramic bowl handcrafted by Master Chef Leong.
