Lotus Dining Group (Madame Shanghai, Lotus Dumpling Bar) is teaming up with Black Star Pastry and Valrhona chocolate for a decadent dessert degustation happening over the Lunar New Year weekend. There'll be four lunchtime sittings running from Saturday, February 17 through to Sunday, February 18.

In this six course degustation, Tiffany Jones (Lotus Head Pastry Chef) and Sam Yeo (Black Star Pastry Executive Chef) will create modern Asian desserts using Valrhona chocolate across the menu — including a Manjari chocolate mousse, which is made from rare Madagascan cocoa beans, and a box of Chinese New Year chocolates to take with you.

The evening will begin not with dessert, as one would expect, but instead with a basket of mixed savoury dumplings from the Lotus kitchen (six per person). For the dessert courses, diners can expect quite the fancy treat. Think dumplings filled with white chocolate custard, topped with nitro pomelo and sitting in a white peony-infused consume; or the Peanut of Prosperity — a crisp chocolate shell filled with oozing red bean and caramel and served on chocolate soil with peanut flowers.

Though the event is specifically in honour of Chinese New Year, it could be a good post-Valentine's date, or just the perfect excuse to treat yourself.
