Each color has its own properties and they are able to reflect our subliminal messages and psychological conditions. Experts even suggest that the use of color in different forms can create balance and health in human system. One of the most famous color therapies, Aura-Soma, was founded by a British woman called Vicky Wall. It could help support equilibrium in the body, mind, and spirit by smearing four chosen dual-colored liquids which contains plant extracts, essential oils, and the energies of gems on body.  Inspired by this magical concept, Chefs of Park café have meticulously designed an afternoon tea buffet menu with various chromatic fruits for the purpose of releasing our tension through the sense of taste and vision.

Summer Freshing Fruit Afternoon Tea Buffet (2)

Yellow – Lemon mousse cake

Yellow could stabilize the emotion of sentimental people and cheer them up. Luminous lemon would be the best fruit to clean out our stomach and stimulate appetite in such a hot and humid weather. Using the golden ratio of 10 cups whipping cream to 1 cup lemon juice, a creamy lemon mousse cake is easily made to refresh our brain after a long day.

 

Light Green – Pandan Soufflé

The chefs try to give soufflé a twist. Pandan leaves are used widely in Singapore cuisine. But this time, they would combine soufflé and the distinctive smell of pandan which gives a new definition of western dessert. When coconut milk, pandan leaves and egg white come together, a fragrant complexity is added which make the desserts more plentiful in taste. To offer the finest food to diners, the soufflé is cooked to order. The chefs must be careful about duration and degree of heating in order to create fluffy texture. Light green is one of the most harmonious colors among all hues. This fresh green dessert might be a great stress management tool.
