ything – and I cut my teeth (an appropriate pun, perhaps) composing jokes and one-liners, so this commission from Hakkasan was
an absolute joy for me: I loved having the opportunity to create a subtle interplay between the different fortunes, hoping that at the end of
the meal the diners would open one… then another, share the fortunes, laugh – perhaps grimace a little as well! – and th
at this would make the ever-memorable experience of dining at these superb restaurants, yet more noteworthy.”
As the number 8 represents prosperity in Chinese tradition, a total of 88 different fortunes penned by Self will be featured in the f
ortune macaron conceived by Hakkasan Group’s Global Executive Pastry Chef Dale DeSimone. The gold fortune macaron will be wrapped with a d
elicate red paper ribbon featuring a golden Hakkasan logo, the interior of which will be typed the fortune in gold.
Both Hakkasan restaurants in London will be also celebrating the Year of the Pig with the wishing tree tradition inspired by the Lam Tseu
n trees in Hong Kong. Hakkasan will be inviting guests to write their wishes for the year ahead on s
pecially designed ribbons which will then be hung on the wooden cages in the restaurant. There will be an 8 course Ch
inese New Year set menu available for £88 per person for a minimum of two people in which the fortune macarons will feature.
