A mooncake workshop was held in Wellington, New Zealand, on Sept 20 to kick off the 2020 New Zealand Chinese Language Week as well as usher in this year’s celebrations of the Mid-Autumn Festival in the country.

Co-organized by the China Cultural Center in Wellington and Future Learning Solutions of the University of Auckland, the event attracted 20 Chinese language teachers from 15 middle schools in Wellington.

Chinese pastry chef Zhang Xiaodan from a local dumpling company was invited to host the workshop, teaching participants how to make snow-crust mooncakes, an online hit mooncake featuring a translucent and soft skin that differs from the traditional baked crust.
