Mid-Autumn Festival : Food




Mooncake is the most popular and important food eaten during the Mid-autumn Festival. Various types of mooncakes are placed in the most prominent places in stores and markets as the festival approaches. Mooncakes are traditionally Chinese pastries which consist of a thin tender skin enveloping a sweet, dense filling. Mooncakes were used to be made at home, but very few people make them at home nowadays. The traditional fillings include lotus seed paste, sweet bean paste and egg yolk, however, mooncakes with modern flavors such as ice cream mooncakes and chocolate mooncakes have appeared in recent years.
