Chinese Pastries 4

Chinese Pastries 4

In Chinese societies, the boundary between festivals, social events and religious activities is fluid. Any festival or social event will involve a degree of religious ritual and pastries perform both ritual and social functions at the same event. Food items used for rituals are often consumed afterwards.

Beyond its common association as ritual or ceremonial products, traditional Chinese pastries are also popular daily food items for the simple reason that they taste good.

Popular items include horse hoof pastry (Matisu), bean paste biscuit , prosperity cake, wifecake, and ang ku kuey , shaped like the shell of a turtle/tortoise and symbolizes longevity. For more examples, see Chinese pastry guide.
