During CCSC's summer camp, we partnered with iCafe to teach our elementary students how to make mooncakes. Making mooncakes was an excellent way for our students to learn more about Chinese traditions, especially when learning from the trained expert pastry chefs at iCafe with decades of experience. Since a lot of our students come from Chinese backgrounds, this was a great way for them to connect with their Chinese cultural heritage. Especially with the Autumn Moon Festival coming up, students can learn how to make the traditional pastry used to celebrate the holiday, mooncakes. CCSC is honored to be able to offer culturally significant, fun, and hands-on activities and opportunities for our students to participate in.
