On the afternoon of August 31 this year, A Bite of Yunnan Mooncake event which is organized by Kunming Information Hub under the framework of Unveiling Yunnan and co-organized by Yunnan Qicai Flower Food Co., Ltd., will kick off in the food factory of Fancy Flowers (花之懿).
Foreigners in Kunming are welcomed to join us. You will not only taste the most Yunnanese flower mooncake, but also have the chance to make your own mooncake. We will also prepare a Chinese Mid-Autumn “meal” for you, which means you will celebrate the festival as what Chinese do, for instance, sing Prelude To Water Melody, write down a personal prayer, and try various flavoured mooncake.
Part 1, DIY Yunnanese mooncake
Ham, flower, egg yolk... You can make it by yourself no matter what kind of mooncake you like. Make a Yunnanese mooncake and celebrate a Yunnanese Mid-Autumn Festival.
Part 2, sing Prelude to Water Melody
Prelude to Water Melody, created by Chinese poet Su Shi, is a traditional Chinese melody to which a poem in the cí style can be sung, including the poet’s imagination and thought about Mid-Autumn Festival, and his joys and sorrows of life. The ancient melodies are lost to history, but modern composers often compose new melodies for it. The song you will hear is a version sung by Faye Wong.
Part 3, write down a personal prayer
Mid-Autumn Festival is the full moon time of the year. Chinese people believe that the round moon represents reunion. People who are travelling or residing in a place far away from home usually place yearning for home on the moon. For foreigners, you can follow the Chinese traditional customs to write down your prayer to wish a union, a better life or others.
Part 4, blindfolded mooncake tasting
Yunnan has various flavoured mooncake, and the most special one is made of rose petals. Do you have any idea about the one in your mouth? Don’t lost in the foretaste game.
