Who would have thought that winning a moon cake eating competition would get me an article in the Fairfield City Champion (a local newspaper), but here we are.
Thanks to some gentle prodding by Chocolatesuze, a number of food bloggers hit the stage during last year’s Cabramatta Moon Festival for a moon cake eating competition. I was fortunate enough to come out on top but I hear it was a close race.
This year’s Cabramatta Moon Festival will be held tomorrow, 19th September from 11am – 8pm. There will be various cultural events such as a cooking demonstration & children’s lantern parade; competitions such as prawn peeling, noodle eating and the aforementioned moon cake eating comps; lots of food stalls, and a fireworks display in the evening.
I’ve yet to decide on whether I would defend my moon cake eating title this year. However, the noodle eating comp does seem enticing. I’ll have to see how I go on the day.
