Mooncake season just passed with the end of the Autumn Festival. The mooncake is served for the full enjoyment of the Moon's splendor and to celebrate the end of a harvest season. Historically, it is also a reminder of a time when Chinese revolutionaries utilized this pastry to overthrow the Mongolian rulers occupying their country. Messages were hidden within the cake or were printed as code on top of the pastry. The moon is mysterious in many cultures and for the chinese, there are many myths and legends that speak of the moon.

What are some other specific pieces of history or perhaps myths that is associated with a food you know?
