EMOËTICONS Afternoon Tea @ Mandarin Oriental KL

From 13 February until 5 March 2017, Mandarin Oriental KL presents an exclusive afternoon tea in collaboration with Moët & Chandon. The Emoëticons Afternoon Tea will feature some of the most-loved Moët-branded emoticons cleverly interpreted by Executive Pastry Chef Tony Hoyle.

Inspired by the creative, expressive world of emojis and emoticons, Moët & Chandon's Emoëticons let you speak what's in your heart when you personalise your message and your bottle with Emoëticons. The group of images including champagne bottles and flutes, eyes, lips, hearts, sunglasses, music notes, smileys, the word pop!, kiss, love and more... Emoëticons give you endless, colorful and stylish ways to convey your love.

Indulge in sweets such as Ruby Lips Raspberry Praline, Love Vanilla Eclair, Smiley Face Peanut & Caramel Macaron, Pop! Mini Cone, Tart Cassis Jelly & Chantilly Cream and Mini Chocolate & Passionfruit Delice. From the savouries, you will find delightful creations such as the Salmon Gravlax with beetroot and caviar, Jumbo lump crab meat with truffle mayonnaise & tomato jelly and Roast beef, truffle & grain mustard mayonnaise sandwich. Not to be missed are the warm scones, served with clotted cream and jam.

Guests can choose to have Moët & Chandon Champagne with their afternoon tea set

Recipe: Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan

Store-bought gnocchi is great for quick lunches as they cook in no time at all. For only RM10 per pack, each pack will yield 4 servings (that's two lunches for us), so it's definitely great value for money.

When The Unc came back from his holidays, he brought us some nice Spanish chorizo, as well as 30-month aged Parmesan, which I thought would work very well with gnocchi. Hence, this Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan dish was born. Super simple to make with delicious flavours - we would definitely be making this again! :)

Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 3 minutes
Cooking time: 6-7 minutes
Serves 2

250g store-bought potato gnocchi (1/2 pack)
100g grey oyster mushrooms, chopped
2 tbp olive oil
6cm length chorizo, thinly sliced and quartered
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
A small handful parsley, finely chopped

1. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the gnocchi and cook for 2 minutes, or until the gnocchi float to the top and then lift out with a slotted spoon and drain well.

2. In a frying pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute, until lightly golden, then add the chorizo and saute for a minute. Next, add the mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes, until the mushrooms have softened.

3.Finally, add the cooked gnocchi and saute for about 1 minute until the gnocchi have a slight crispy crust on them. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Serve gnocchi immediately with generous shavings of Parmesan cheese and freshly chopped parsley.
