On Mid-Autumn night the harvest moon is supposed to be at its brightest and fullest, which gives rise to the celebration’s other name: Mooncake Festival.
The Mid-Autumn Festival originated as a harvest festival three thousand years ago, as a way for agrarian Chinese to celebrate the bounty of their fields and orchards. It was a time for the cessation of work, and one of the rare nights in which hard-working farmers stayed up late to admire the lustre of the full moon while enjoying the delicacies associated with the festival. Apart from pumpkin, pomelos, duck and wine, the central food focus of the festival was a dense, wheat flour pastry called the mooncake. So named for its circular shape, mooncakes were traditionally made with red bean paste, lotus paste and nuts.
