South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “How to make traditional mooncakes with five-star hotel dim sum master chef Tse Sun-fuk” – below is their description.
Every year ahead of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Chinese chefs at restaurants, hotels and bakeries in Hong Kong are busy coming up with new flavours for mooncakes, with twists including egg custard, chocolate or ice cream, and even some made with durian. But people who prefer traditional mooncakes may be surprised to learn that they are not that difficult to make at home. Tse Sun-fuk, dim sum chef at the Cordis Hotel in Hong Kong, showed the SCMP’s Bernice Chan how to bake mooncakes with white lotus seed paste and two egg yolks.

In This Story: Hong Kong
Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.
Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
