  • The lotus root is cream-colored and when you slice it, you get thin honeycomb-patterned disks that can be added to soups, salads or stir-fries
  • On the Autumnal Equinox in 1368, the Chinese were able to overthrow the Mongols and were able to do so using moon cakes as a weapon of sorts!
  • Fortune cookies are a North American invention, not Chinese.
