[NEW POST] Celebrating the Mid Autumn Festival at JW Marriott Jakarta

In celebration of the Mid-Autumn festival, JW Marriott Jakarta’s has prepared a vast selection of JW Marriott’s Signature Moon Cakes, with flavors such as the all-time favorite – traditional White Lotus with Egg Yolk, Green Tea and Red Bean. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most-important festivals for the Chinese people. It is intended as an opportunity to gather with family (gathering), show gratitude for the harvest (thanksgiving) and the opportunity to invoke for good luck (praying). Ancient Chinese people made their own Moon Cakes and then ate it together with their family and relatives to celebrate this festival. The Elders of the family would cut the cake into pieces and share it with family members as the symbol of family reunion. The round shape of the cake represents the completeness and unity of the family.

It turns out making moon cake was very easy, but it certainly should be with the proper materials and high quality. Me, my husband, and Ian from JktGo also joined the fun session with Chef John Chu.
