The mid-autumn cake brings the whole family together. It has become a precious gift, a sign of deep feelings. These cakes, prepared with passion, are fragrant and refined. They remind us of this beautiful legend: Once upon a time, in the month of August, on a moonlit night, when it was mild, there were peasants who prepared majestic dishes in honor of the Dragon.
The dishes sent to Earth and Heaven included images of dogs made with the flesh of grapefruits, around which were arranged fruits, bánh nuong (stuffed cake baked in the oven) and bánh deo (sticky sweet rice paste cake).
The bánh nuong was covered in cassava flour, golden in egg yolk and stuffed with mung beans, pork and salted eggs.
The bánh deo was, on the other hand, prepared with glutinous rice flour, stuffed with sugar, grapefruit flower essence and molded into small round wooden frames. Its filling consisted of lotus seeds or mung bean puree, smooth and mellow.
These family tradition cakes and ancestors of today’s mid-autumn cakes have taken root in the hearts of many generations of Vietnamese.
Over time, the Mid-Autumn Festival has grown into a joyous holiday for children and families who gather around these cakes. This tradition, which parents must celebrate, is dedicated to children. It is also an invitation for those who have moved away from their families to join her. Significant gifts, they are also of great spiritual value.
Great promotions at hotels.
