Chinese New Year 2019: Unique snacks and goodies

From foie gras pineapple tarts to nasi lemak cookies, impress your guests with this selection of sweet and savoury snacks.

With every visitation comes the tempting slew of Chinese New Year goodies. In addition to the usual pineapple tarts, crispy love letters and spicy dried shrimp rolls, here are some unusual picks, both sweet and savoury, to stock up on this Lunar New Year.

  • Chinese New Year Foie gras pineapple tarts from Racines

    Foie Gras Pineapple Tarts

    Looking for something unique? This unusual handcrafted French-meets-Chinese pineapple tart was created by executive pastry Chef Sam Leong and is true to the culinary spirit of Racines, a restaurant which features both French and Chinese cuisines.

    In this pairing of foie gras with acidic fruits, the clever use of rich foie gras butter in the dough gives a well-rounded savouriness to the pastry and helps balance the sweet and, at times, sharp flavours of the pineapple. Takeaway items are available online. Collection only available from Jan 21 to Feb 22.

    Racines, Sofitel Singapore City Centre, 9 Wallich Street, Singapore 078885
