Product Description

  • Fortune Cookies
  • Fortune Cookies are an ideal way to celebrate any occasion - traditionally eaten at the end of a Chinese meal, they are also the perfect finish to a dinner party and an intriguing end to any evening.
  • The History of the Fortune Cookie
  • For many centuries the Chinese have marked special occasions and festivals, such as Harvest and New Year, with the giving and receiving of Moon-cake pastries filled with lotus seed or red bean paste.
  • According to legend, Moon-cakes played an important role in the founding of the Ming dynasty. The Mongols invaded China and became its rulers in the 13th century but the Han people, who were revolutionaries, planned a secret rebellion and their people were alerted of a plague and told that the only way to be saved was to eat Moon-cakes. Hidden inside every Moon-cake was a message giving the date of the uprising. The rebellion was successful and Moon-cakes have been given and received at great festivals ever since.
  • The transition from Moon Cakes to modern-day Fortune Cookies started during the hard days of the American Gold Rush. Chinese men and women were employed to build the great American railways through the Sierra Nevada to California. As they didn't have traditional Cakes to exchange at the Moon Festival, they instead put happy messages inside biscuits and thus the Fortune Cookie was born.
  • When the Chinese first settled in San Francisco the custom continued, with cookies being made by hand until 1964 when first automated production began.
  • Only the best for your guest!
