Eating mooncakes is undoubtedly the most important culinary ritual for the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, which falls on Sept 10 this year.

Flavors of the round pastries differ greatly from place to place, ranging from lotus seed paste and sweet bean paste to ham and pork mince. Food companies and restaurants nowadays are also developing more creative recipes and catchy packages to lure more customers in.
Traditionally, the most popular mooncakes are the Cantonese, Beijing and Su (Suzhou) styles.
