The Goods from Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe
Vancouver, BC | Vancouver’s Beaucoup Bakery has just unveiled its new Mid-Autumn Festival Collection, featuring a new trio of mooncake flavours, as well as a show-stopping dessert creation celebrating durian, the “king of fruits”. The whole collection is available for pre-order online now for pick-up at its Fir Street location from September 15 to September 29, 2023.
Beaucoup Bakery’s mooncakes are made with a buttery sablé crust created by pastry chef and co-owner Betty Hung – her unique take on the traditional mooncake.
“Mid-Autumn Festival is a time to celebrate with loved ones over a feast and delicious treats, especially with the symbolic mooncake,” says Betty, who co-owns Beaucoup Bakery with her brother Jacky Hung. “Representing the round moon, our mooncakes this year feature a few of our favourite flavours, such as red bean, Thai milk tea, and of course, coffee. And, we really wanted to highlight our love for durian this year with a special cake. Growing up as kids, we were always in awe of how big this majestic fruit was. It’s perfect for sharing.”

“We look forward to our guests trying these new creations, and although this is definitely a busy time of year, we hope people will find time to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with family and friends,” adds Betty.
