There's no denying Singaporeans' love for durians, and it's the King of Fruits for a reason: whether you eat the fruit or enjoy it as a dessert, you won't be able to resist its complex flavours—rich, sweet and bittersweet at the same time. As durian season approaches, there is no better time to savour this indulgent fruit, be it by itself or in a dessert. Here are some to try this season.
1. D24 Strawberry Mascarpone Filo
Created as part of Goodwood Park Hotel’s Durian Fiesta lineup this year, this decadent tart sees thin and delicate layers of filo pastry filled with creamy durian mousse and light mascarpone cream. It’s then crowned with fresh strawberries and roasted pistachios, adding texture to the mouth-watering treat while balancing its rich flavours.
