Mid-Autumn Festival

Tomorrow is Mid -Autumn Festival, which is one of the most important Chinese traditional festivals, also known as Chinese Moon Festival. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth lunisolar month. On Mid-Autumn Festival night the moon is supposed to be the brightest and fullest. Chinese people believe a full moon is a symbol of peace, prosperity, and family reunion.  People  meet their family, having dinner and eating mooncakes together.

There are hundreds of different variations of mooncakes. Typical mooncakes are round pastries,  like a full moon. Mooncakes are usually eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea.

This is my second try to make moocakes by myself. I chose green beas for the filling. They don’t look so exquisite as the ones in shop, because I have no mold for beautiful pattern.  But they are really fresh and tasty. 🙂
