Jason Shen, executive pastry chef at the hotel, bakes four types of bread daily. It can be anything from baguette (30 yuan) to mixed rye cranberry (50 yuan). Shen likes to mix grains, dried fruits and vegetables to create new flavors.
“I mix the rye with cranberry and proof it naturally, trying to avoid using too much yeast. In this way, the bread is not just tasty, but also
healthier,” Shen says.
The pastry chef also uses basil, rosemary, nutmeg and vanilla. The rosemary sun dried tomato bread (50 yuan), one of his signatures, is definitely worth trying.
All the breads are free for diners at O’ Café, the hotel’s buffet restaurant. They are also sold at Delicatessen (the hotel’s bakery shop) but need to be ordered in advance.
