Born in 2019, the esca Salted Egg Parmesan Custard Lava Mooncake was created when the team decided to develop a vegetarian mooncake recipe to offer a more natural and preservative-free option to its customers. Using a selection of fine ingredients including vegetarian parmesan, coconut milk, vanilla bean paste, and Japanese eggs, the first editions of the Salted Parmesan Custard Lava Mooncake were produced in limited edition batches to spread joy amongst esca’s valued customers who share the same passion for good vegetarian delights. Humbled by the phenomenal feedback, esca is excited to bring back its Salted Egg Parmesan Custard Lava Mooncake to the market this season.
100 percent Vegetarian and Preservative Free
Unlike traditional mooncakes that are made with lard, preservatives, red bean or lotus seed paste, and salted egg yolk, esca’s mooncake is 100 percent vegetarian, preservative-free and handmade with only the finest natural ingredients. The distinct flavour profile is composed of three different layers: a molten salted egg yolk centre, a creamy layer of vegetarian parmesan and coconut milk custard, and lastly, a buttery vanilla pastry crust. The rich salted egg flavour travels through the filling and custard layer, while the vegetarian parmesan adds a boost of umami, and contrasts well with the sweet and fragrant vanilla bean in the pastry.
As the mooncakes contain no preservatives, the shelf life will be two weeks when stored in the refrigerator. To enjoy the mooncakes, we recommend reheating them for six minutes in a 160 degree Celsius oven, or leaving them at room temperature for one hour before consumption.
Plastic-free and Eco-friendly Packaging
Dedicated to minimizing unnecessary waste and maintaining the company’s eco-friendly philosophy, esca invested in biodegradable packaging materials this season. All mooncakes will be packaged in paper boxes without any plastic wrappings, making it the perfect gift idea for the eco-conscious.
