Mid-Autumn Festival Food
During the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, families join together to celebrate by having a large meal together as a reunion. Since the celebration occurs during the harvest season, a wide variety of ingredients for cooking wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival dishes are readily available. What kinds of foods are traditionally eaten in China during the Mid-Autumn Festival? Have no idea? Don’t worry! We’re here to share some insights on the delicious food you should try out:
- Mooncake - Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the full moon with mooncake. It has many styles, contents, and flavours, but it's always round like a full moon, symbolising a family gathering. All families exchange mooncakes on the festival night, signifying reuniting. Mixed nuts, red beans, white lotus, salt yolk, and fruits are popular mooncake flavours.
- Osmanthus Cake - Osmanthus cakes, another Mid-Autumn Festival favourite, are made with seasonal flowers. It's sweet and osmanthus-scented and contains gum, vitamins, protein, and calcium. Reunion dinner includes sliced lotus root with osmanthus sugar.
- Hairy Crab - Mid-Autumn Festival is the harvest season for hairy crabs, hence they are commonly served in South China, where they grow. Gucheng, Taihu, Yangcheng, etc., have the most famous hairy crabs. Most people steam them.
- Duck - In the dry autumn, a duck helps to keep the lungs and throat moist. Ducks in the eighth lunar month, after more than half a year of growing, are the best tasting since they are neither too plump nor too lean.
