New England Dessert Showcase 2011
We visited the New England Dessert Showcase 2011 last weekend for some sweet treats and and a look at what's the latest thing in confections. This was the third show we've attended and it just seems to get better and better each year. The first people to anxiously greet us were the fabulous ladies of O'Sugar! Cakery. You need quality cakes made from scratch? They got 'em.
These amazing and colorful treats were made by Kueh of Quincy. They use rice, rice flour, tapioca and sweet potato or yam to create them and were one of the most intriguing tables at the show. It's like a cross between pudding and candy on a stick.
Did I mention that the show featured the world's largest cannoli? The shell, made by Golden Cannoli in Somerville, was a majestic ten feet long.
Julie Wetherbee, of Dirty Water TV fame, was hosting the main stage and stopped over to ask us for an interview. Adam of @ConciergeBoston, my guest for the event, and I chatted for a few minutes about our favorite tastes at the show. All without make-up, wardrobe or hair. Well, not for us anyway.
The ladies of Batch ultra premium ice cream were there. We felt compelled to sample their salted caramel flavor to make sure it was spot on. It was!
All in all, it was a very fun afternoon. Enjoy the pics!
