Palace Delicacies: Eight Treasures Pudding
The style and taste of traditional Chinese pastries vary enormously across the country. One of
these, “eight treasures pudding”, is especially meaningful for people in Guangdong and Hong
Kong. It is said that the pudding was created in the Ming dynasty and was especially popular in
the Qing dynasty. It is also a famous palace treat loved by Emperor Qianlong and the Empress
Cixi. The ingredients for cooking precious rice pudding are both common foods and are used in
medicine, including: wolfporia cocos, gordon enryale seed, lotus seed, coix Seed, yam, lentils,
malt, and coriander powder. Regular consumption can nourish the spleen and stomach.
