The Mid-Autumn festival – a celebration of the first harvest – is one of the most significant dates in the Chinese calendar and falls on Friday 13th September this year. To celebrate, families and friends gather together for dinner, lighting lanterns and eating mooncakes – a round sweet treat symbolic of the season’s first full moon, which represents completeness and reunion in Chinese culture.
To mark the occasion, fine-dining Cantonese restaurant Imperial Treasure, is serving a modern interpretation of the traditional Mooncake, filling the handmade delicacies with a velvety custard instead of lotus seed or red bean paste.
Available until 15th September, diners can either order the mooncakes as a dessert (£4 a piece, minimum of three), or take them away in a beautifully decorated gift box of eight (£38) to enjoy at home.
The mooncake gift boxes can be purchased directly from the restaurant, 24 hours’ notice is required for those ordering six boxes or more. To pre-order please call 020 3011 1328 or email email@example.com.
Imperial Treasure Group is recognised for its authentic Chinese food. The Shanghai restaurant has two Michelin stars, with Singapore, Hong Kong and Guangzhou each holding one star. These achievements sit alongside more than 50 other industry accolades including Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and the World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence.
