The Chinese are fastidious about their food and that comes fully into play during the period of the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival. There is a wide variety of distinctive seasonal desserts: snow-skin mooncake, Osmanthus-flavored steamed lotus root stuffed with glutinous rice, kumquat tea, Osmanthus and red bean glutinous rice balls, pudding and so on.
Today, you can learn how to make your own mooncakes, thanks to the recipe included in “Flavor of Mid-Autumn Festival”. This is a project introducing simple pastries and drinks with short videos, coupled with an overview of culinary culture surrounding the Mid-Autumn Festival. The project presents festive cuisine and health preservation traditions during the season.
