Moon Festival
Words by Mark Hughes on 22 Sep 2015
Falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Moon Festival is the one of the grandest festivals in Asia. Also known as the mid-Autumn Festival, the 15th is when the moon is at its roundest and brightest, and it is a time of special significance. Slightly differing from the customs of Moon Festival in China, Korea celebrates the mid-Autumn event by preparing a banquet to pay respects to ancestors for a successful harvest. During the festivities, Korean people travel back to their hometown to spend time with their families and to enjoy food predominately made from rice, which is harvested during this period.   “The Moon Festival is called Chuseok in Korea,” says Eun Hee An, chef and co-owner with her husband Ben Sears, and wine agent Ned Brooks of Korean restaurant Paper Bird  in the Sydney suburb of Potts Point. “Traditionally, Chuseok is a day to pray to your ancestors in order to assure a good harvest that year. I am from Ulsan, but we have family members in Seoul, Chungju and Busan, so it’s one of the few times a year (along with Seolnal, which is Chinese New Year) that the entire family comes together. We come together, commemorate family members who have passed (Charye) and do Seongmyo, where we make offerings at their graves.” Family feast Of course, with the family gathered, food is important to the festivities and Eun recalls her favourite memory from the Moon Festival when she was a child. “One of the offerings we make is songpyeon: a sweet rice cake, like a mochi, stuffed with honey, sesame or red bean, shaped into a half-moon crescent. Young girls are told that whoever makes the best looking songpyeon will get the best looking husband, so I was always very focused with my mochi decorations!” Unique to the Songpyeon in Korea is the use of pine leaves. During the cooking process, the Songpyeon is steamed together with pine leaves, which adds a delightfully aromatic twist to the traditional dessert. Along with the Songpyeon, Eun’s favourite dish during the Moon Festival was a pan-fried fritter known as jeon, as well as a special recipe perfected by her grandmother. “Besides songpyeon we eat assorted jeon, which is a Korean pan fried fritter. My favourites are zucchini and also my granny’s gochujeon, which is a chilli stuffed with minced beef and then battered and fried. Chuseok in Australia Ben and Eun manned the pans at Sydney’s iconic Claude’s restaurant before it shut down in 2013, which prompted the pair to start up their own venture. From humble beginnings, Moon Park has emerged as one of Sydney’s best Korean restaurants with the menu featuring a fresh focus on traditional Korean. Dishes such as Sooyuk – cold smoked pork belly braised with artichoke and chestnut in mushroom dashi, sit alongside fusion dishes like barbecued octopus with potato cream, kelp oil, garlic chive kimchi, and crispy fried chicken with   pickled radish, soy and syrup. These days with Eun making a life for herself in Sydney with Ben, she celebrates the Moon Festival in her own way. “In a way, Chuseok for me is bittersweet because I am the only member of my family who no longer lives in Korea,” says Eun. “Of course, I still want to celebrate, so I call my parents and talk to everyone about what they are doing and the food they are enjoying. But it is a time of year I realise how far away I am.” Eun says they will also celebrate the Moon Festival with their patrons in the restaurant with some traditional Chuseok dishes added to the menu during Autumn, but she doubts the festival will ever get as big over here as it is back home in Korea. “It would be great, but I don’t think it could ever be,” she says. “Chuseok is a very old tradition in a country where, historically, for many people the quality of the year was defined by the agricultural harvest. Even now, as more people move to cities, it is still so ingrained as a big part of our cultural upbringing.” NOTE: We ran this article in the Spring issue of Selector followed by recipes for chicken skewers and stir-fry beef, and it could be assumed that these recipes were from Moon Park. However, Ben and Eun were not the authors of these recipes and they are in no way affiliated with the products featured in the recipes. Sorry for the confusion, and to Ben and Eun. If you have a hankering for traditional Korean with a fresh focus, then check out P aper Bird , I think you’ll be rewarded.

Mediterranean cruise with Silversea
With the introduction of its newest ship , Silver Muse, Silversea has lifted the bar for luxury cruising even higher. You can experience it on a bespoke Wine Selectors’ adventure in 2018. When the first Silversea ship was launched over 20 years ago, owner Antonio Lefebvre d’Ovidio advised his son, Manfredi, to always keep their family values and traditions close to his heart and not be swayed by ephemeral trends. Now Chairman of Silversea Cruises, Manfredi heeded his father’s words and is incredibly proud of Silversea’s current status as a leader in luxury travel. So it is with immense pleasure that Manfredi introduces the newest ship, Silver Muse. A work of art
A divine inspirational work of art of the highest order, Silver Muse sees the Silversea fleet expanded to nine ships and the bar in the intimate-luxury cruising market raised to its highest level yet. Boutique in size, accommodating 596 guests, Silver Muse can visit ports that larger ships simply cannot access, and retains an intimate, cosy, home away from home feeling. Yet she is also large enough to offer the superlative quality of luxury service and options for which Silversea are famous. While the destinations Silver Muse visits offer plenty of opportunities for active exploration, back on board, exclusive new additions will ensure you’re sailing in ultimate luxury and relaxation. Bespoke savoir beds
They were the choice of Sir Winston Churchill, Giacomo Puccini and Marilyn Monroe, and now Savoir Beds will ensure guests sailing in the Owner, Royal and Grand suites of Silver Muse enjoy a superb night’s sleep, too. Savoir’s handmade bespoke mattresses and toppers, created using the finest natural materials and skilled craftsmanship, offer a variation in support from soft to firm, customisable to guest preference. With their cloud-like comfort, you’ll never want your trip to end! Spa sanctuary Silversea has redefined beauty and wellness on board Silver Muse with the introduction of Zàgara Beauty Spa – a uniquely artistic and holistic sensory experience. Zàgara melds its beautiful Italian heritage with a 360º mind and body philosophy to evoke awareness and nurture well-being. A sanctuary of leisure and comfort, this elegant respite is the gateway to serenity. Complementing a choreographed menu of services that feature award-winning products and innovation, the unique Zàgara concept also encourages guests to create their own spa experience. Blending artistry through a myriad of visual and experiential elements with holistic therapies, Zàgara promises peace and beauty at every touch point. Be immersed in art Another exclusive to Silver Muse is the all-new Arts Café. Evoking the ambience of an art gallery, in this unique space, guests are able to relax and unwind, surrounded by some of the most exquisite pieces of art. The featured exhibitions are varied, exciting and frequently changing, including paintings and sculptures from a broad range of talented artists. The venue’s distinctive design offers a relaxing getaway with daytime cuisine in the form of a café and deli-bar. Come early evening, the venue transforms into a lively, evening cocktail lounge, where guests can retreat to one of the comfortable chairs, grab a drink and relax, while taking in the incredible view. Exquisite attention to detail
While iconic destinations and grand vistas are obviously impressive, often its the smallest details that have the biggest impact. Silver Muse’s exceptional guest-to-staff ratio, including butlers in every suite, means that someone is always on hand to look after the details, so you don’t have to. As Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio says, “We believe that Silver Muse is quite simply, our best ship ever.” Register now! +  Exclusive gourmet tour
