What is Moon cake?

Chinese mooncake is a food that is dear to many, and it celebrates the new year based on the lunar calendar. The lunar calendar is named from the monthly cycles of the moon - hence the name moon cake. The Lunar new year celebrations can last for up to two weeks, and many families are known to have Chinese mooncake in the house to serve to any visitors.

Chinese mooncake has a thick doughy crust made from the egg yolks of salted duck eggs and can have either sweet or savoury fillings. Lotus or red bean filling is the most popular, and when paired with the salted egg yolks in the crust gives a taste that is both sweet and savoury.
