Over the Mooncake

Hosted by

Eddie Lin writes the blog Deep End Dining.  He went to the legendary Phoenix Bakery for mooncakes, a delicacy eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival.  The bakery has been in LA's Chinatown since 1938.  Mooncakes usually contain red bean paste or lotus paste and a salted duck egg.  When the cake is cut in half, it resembles a moon.  These days, mooncakes are made with all kinds of things.  The Phoenix Bakery also makes a fruit nut mooncake with seeds, candied fruit and Virginia ham.

Eddie will be emceeing the Mid-Autumn Festival in Chinatown.
