Reprising his sold-out pop-up from last November, the Dutch chef has some super-sized tricks up his sleeve this time around

Back in November, Amber executive chef and culinary director of the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Richard Ekkebus tapped into Hong Kong's fervour for baked goods when he partnered with Landmark to debut a pastry pop-up at their Christmas market. 

Now, LMO Freshly-Baked by Richard Ekkebus is making a return for three months this spring from April to June, on the third floor of Landmark. This second edition reprises Ekkebus' favourite childhood pastries growing up in the southwest of the Netherlands, and will be freshly baked by Ekkebus and pastry chef Valentin Mille at the stall every hour to recreate the anticipation of pastries served straight from the oven.

Among the signature pastries to look forward to are Amber's famous madeleines in gluten-free buckwheat and Amalfi lemon versions, canelés, pistachio cookies and the 'brookie'—a hybrid chocolate cookie and brownie recipe. New products such as the vanilla chouquette, flan Parisien with bourbon vanilla, and chocolate moelleux with sea salt will also be up for grabs

The pop-up will also offer special super-sized versions of the Amalfi lemon madeleine and a cookie flavour of the week, the latter clocking in at a whopping 24cm in diameter. These limited edition items will only be available at specific times. 

Capping off this extravaganza of sweet treats are two new drinks on the menu: the Iced Chocoholic Drink combining cacao and single origin chocolate, and from 5pm onwards, the Iced AlcoChoc, which spikes the former with premium brown spirits such as bourbon or dark rum.
