Amoy Montage Header Final

Mid-Autumn Festival or Chinese Moon Festival is the second most important festival after the Spring Festival to Chinese people. It is traditionally celebrated on the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month, usually in the period early September to early October and this year falls on 8th September. When the festival comes, people go home from every corner of the country and the world to meet their family, put food on tables and look up at the sky while talking about life.

These day, people in different places follow various customs, but all show their love and longing for a better life. People will enjoy the full moon when it is said to be at its brightest and eat mooncakes on that day.”

To celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival Amoy challenged me to come up with feast of my own using their range of Straight to Wok Noodles and Sauces. You can also see check out some fab recipes from TV chef, Ching He Huang who has come up with the Amoyzing Meals in a Minute recipe collection on YouTube.

      Thank you Janice:-)

    Use AMOY products all the time. We have chinese type meals at least once a week – and I’ve never been to China, yet I’ve been to Singapore & Kaula Lumpur & the meals there are wonderful. Noodles are a great addition to stir fry. It’s a great way to eat loads of vegetables (whatever is left in the fridge) and a little meat with sauce & noodles.

    1. Camilla

      You’re so right, quick and healthy is such a bonus aswell as tasting great:-)

  5. Katie Bryson

  7. DANIELLE VEDMORE

    Can I come for tea?!! Ill bring my own chop sticks! Can I ask how you stopped all the noodles from sticking together – that always happens to me!

    1. Camilla

      Ooh I don’t know! This was my first time using pre-cooked and they just seemed to untangle themselves as I pushed them around with a wooden spoon in the sauce.

  8. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    Yum! I love pad thai!

    1. Camilla

      I do too now, had never had it before!
