I love a good swiss roll. But unfortunately, they don’t make good swiss rolls with nice fillings where I am. It is always some jam in the middle, which is the ideal taste I have in mind.

Pretty satisfied, taste wise, for my first attempt!

Tang Yuan (Glutinous Rice Balls)

Traditionally, this dish is eaten to symbolise the reunion of the family. Typically taken on the 15th day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Lantern festival (more commonly known as mooncake festival now because of the consumption of mooncakes during this period) as well as Winter Solstice).
