Chef makes mooncakes at mooncake bakery in Henan
At age 31, Zhang Xu already serves as the chef of Jingshengchang, a Henan-based mooncake bakery established in 1860. Mooncakes produced at Jingshengchang are characterized by their crispy crusts and generous stuffing, coupled with a meticulous set of bakery skills which Zhang had begun to learn since high school graduation in 2007. "Our bakery skills are a great treasure," says Zhang. "I'll do my best to pass them down to future generations."
