Janice Wong Mooncakes offer luxury design-inspired treat

Award-winning Singapore-based chef, Janice Wong, has released the latest extension of her luxury chocolate mooncake series, offering an indulgent late summer treat, reports Neill Barston.

As the business explained, its series has been forged with a strong artistic eye, with each distinctive tin offering two portions, with its striking box depicting rabbits against a glowing moon.

These decadent chocolates are decorated in an array of colours with hand-dripped splatters, as each piece reveals a chocolate ganache centre whipped with elements that do not correspond to its outer shell for a delightful surprise. They are available in Peanut Butter Snickers and Coffee Chocolate flavours.


As the creator of the new series, Janice Wong is a two-time winner of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef by the prestigious San Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Chef Janice Wong has also created artistic designs for countless fashion houses including Fendi, Kate Spade and even Chanel.

According to the business, the leading chef has embraced food technology and innovation: experimenting with ingredients, cooking techniques and machines have led to creations of edible art, 3D printed chocolates and others. This in turn has kickstarted a flurry of activities that saw her enterprise expand internationally, with a prime focus on both design and taste. The Janice Wong Mooncake Collection 2023 is now live for pre-orders via the Janice Wong UK website and Selfridges and are available now at RRP £16.

In addition to being a chef, Janice has also engaged in a number of other entrepreneurial ventures, including restaurants, dessert bars, as well as delivering a number of edible art installations that have gained her attention around the world.

Notably, she recently started-up what is described as a ‘true tree-to-bar’ chocolate business in Singapore, which has placed Fairtrade and environmental protection at the heart of its operations. This has included plans to plant 1,000 trees in her home territory, which has scarce land resources, yet is starting to see its local artisanal sector grow.
