Qiaoguo in Double Seventh Festival  

Qiaoguo (Fried Thin Pastes) is in different shapes with the materials mostly being oil, flour, sugar and honey. Generally Qiaoguo are made into a fusiform shape and deep-fried into a golden color. The deft hands will nip them into all shapes related to the legend of the Festival.



The melons and fruits used on the day are usually carved into the shapes of flowers and birds, or carved with patterns in relief on the melon peel, which are therefore called "carved melons".


As China's Valentine's Day, the Double Seventh Festival is the most romantic one among all traditional Chinese festivals, and also a day most valued by girls in the past. Today, it is still one of our favorite festivals under evolvement and innovation based on the traditional culture.
