Declaration area or unit: Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province

Guo Dulin Jin-style moon cakes are Shanxi specialty. They are simple in shape, mellow in taste, crisp and refreshing, sweet but not greasy. They are famous for their crispness, delicacy, sweetness, mellow and harmony.

The craftsmanship of Guo Dulin's Jin-style moon cakes can be traced back to the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, which has a history of more than 300 years. During the Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty, Guo Dulin's moon cakes have been well-known in Jinzhong, Taiyuan, Datong, Linfen and other places, and become a gift of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Guo Dulin's moon cakes are exceptionally elaborate in the selection of raw materials and accessories, unique in skin kneading techniques and filling manufacturing techniques, unique in shape of the baking oven, completely dependent on manual control of baking temperature, after baking, the moon cakes are more rich in flavor and have a good taste through cellar ring ripening. Guo Dulin's moon cake production retains the traditional skills of Shanxi folk cake industry since Ming and Qing Dynasties, and its special technology of "filling with noodles" shows the characteristics of northern cake making techniques.

As the authentic inheritor of Jin style moon cakes, Taiyuan Shuangshuang Synthetic Food Co., Ltd. has made important contributions to the development and continuation of this kind of moon cakes. Due to the adjustment of crop planting structure in recent years, the yield of white wheat and other crops has decreased sharply, resulting in the lack of raw materials for Jin-style moon cakes. However, the traditional hand-made way makes it difficult for manufacturers to mechanize mass production. In this case, the living space of Jin-style moon cake making technology is difficult to expand, and it is urgent to protect.
