If you’ve ever been to a Chinese or Asian bakery, you’ve seen the endless varieties of cakes stacked with beautiful fruit and frosting decorations. Tempted by the myriad of sweet and savory filled buns baked fresh that morning? This sweets-focused walking tour is for you! Jacqueline Church, founder of Boston Chinatown Tours, will share insights she’s gained from years of leading food and culture tours. We will explore and enjoy the history of these traditional pastries and snacks, and then focus on contemporary sweets that continue to grow in popularity in Western cultures – shaved ice, rolled ice cream, and bubble tea – and learn about many sweet spots in Boston’s Chinatown!
