Taufulou in da Kicthen : Making of Snowskin Mooncakes @ Zuan Yuan, One World Hotel

This year I have to admit that mooncakes mood set in really early as I did received a mooncake list from my friends as early as end of June and already show what to have and privillage for early birds discounts. This year I got the privillage to set my foot into a hotel kicthen again to learn how to make moon cakes as this round I will be learning how to make Snowskin Mooncakes with the courtesy of Zuan Yuan, One World Hotel.

What is in the kitchen for us this round is to make Low Sugar Wheat Grass and Green Tea Snow Skin Mooncakes.
