The Peninsula Bangkok will celebrate the forthcoming Mid-Autumn Festival with its ever-popular, hand-made Peninsula moon-cakes and a special accommodation package for all guests to enjoy.
Traditional Chinese moon-cakes are eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival, which occurs on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, falling in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar. The date parallels the autumnal equinox of the solar calendar, when the moon is at its fullest and roundest. The full moon is traditionally a symbol of reunion and the Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for family reunions.
Enjoying the moon is an ancient tradition in China, which goes back nearly 1,400 years. Today, moon-cakes are still considered an indispensable delicacy of the festival and are offered by friends and colleagues. They always feature in family gatherings during the festivities.
This year, The Peninsula Bangkok’s Executive Chinese Chef Jackie Ho and his team will make 250,000 mooncakes by hand in 39 days. Featuring newly designed packaging, only a limited quantity is freshly made every day by Chef Ho and the team.
The Peninsula moon-cakes can be purchased at The Peninsula Boutique, between 10:00 am and 9:00 pm from 1 August to 8 September 2014.
From 21 August to 8 September 2014, the Peninsula mooncakes will also be available for purchase at Siam Paragon Shopping Complex as well.
