Mid-Autumn Festival here in China, which of course means there is no shortage of mooncakes. Last year I was introduced to this Chinese pastry and quickly decided that they were not for me. But here in 2014, a full year without having tried a mooncake, I thought I should give them another chance. I realized all too well that my initial judgement had been right: Mooncakes are gross. The problem is I have at least 20 of them which were ‘gifted’ to me from various people. I know, it’s the thought that counts. Perhaps I’m pessimistic, so I’ll leave you with a hopeful thought. I’m sure there is a quality, tasty mooncake out there, but it remains to be seen, or more importantly, enjoyed.
