2020 Full Moon Festival

Jan 25, 2021

Round up your friends and family, it’s time for a dinner party! (Online, of course)

If you’re looking for an ‘eat-until-you-unbutton-your-pants’ delicious feed and a reason to socialise, then you’ve come to the right place because the annual Full Moon Festival is fast approaching and boy do we have a feast in store for you! But before we get excited about who out of your family and friends is going to eat the most over a Zoom call, let’s gain some insight into the the second most important event in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. 

 

The Full Moon Festival (also known as Mid-Autumn Festival), is an annual event in East Asia that signifies the moon being at its fullest and its brightest. In Chinese culture, the full moon is a symbol of reunion, and its timing also coincides with the harvesting period in the middle of Autumn. This year the festival will be held on the 1st of October and normally many families would come together to celebrate by worshiping and appreciating the full moon and sharing a lavish dinner, but since things are looking a bit different this year (*wipes away a tear*), we’ve got a plan in place to make the most of this wonderful annual occasion! 

 

So how do we celebrate the Full Moon Festival? Well, for starters there ought to be a lot of food, and two of the most iconic dishes are the crab and the mooncake…Yes, our feast includes 2 delicious mooncakes made exclusively for Foodifox customers by renowned Melbourne patisserie, Sam Baking High! Many people also send well wishes to their friends and family, so it’s very common for lanterns of all shapes and sizes to be displayed as a beacon of light to prosperity and good luck.

It has been a longstanding tradition to eat crabs during the festival and people will often send crabs to their loved ones as an expression of gratitude. This has been one of the main highlights of the celebration since the 14th century. Crabs are one of the customary elements of the festival and are prized for their sweetness and succulence. Crabs are already a rare delicacy and are highly sought after for their high levels of amino acids and protein, but during this time they are also at their tastiest thanks to being full of roe. So if you’re a seafood lover, you really don’t want to give this festival a miss!
