If the posts from last week on red bean ice cream and layer cakes inspired you, how about channeling your energies toward a pair of business class seats? I’ve been invited to judge Cathay Pacific Airlines’ Asian-inspired dessert contest. The prize is a pair of business class tickets from the U.S. to Hong Kong.
I’ve flown business class on Cathay to Hong Kong a couple of times and let me tell you, it’s splendid. You can actually sleep in Cathay’s flat bed-like pod. You arrive refreshed, not a wreck. It’s another world in business class and to experience it is an amazing pleasure.
Aside from traveling in extra comfort, your dessert may be featured on international flights as part of the menu. So put on your thinking caps! You have about a month to enter the “Art of Dessert” contest. Get more details at the Cathay Pacific Facebook page.
Get your pandan, tapioca starch, agar and tropical fruit pantry in gear. Have fun and best of luck!
