A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
10 Chinese Desserts you have never probably never heard of
Most people are unaware of the Chinese sweet tooth! The Chinese love their sweets and desserts with an intense passion and loyalty! Go to Chinatown and you'll see a bakery on every corner full of amazing pastries, desserts, cakes, and other confections.
This may come as a shock to many because the only contact most of us have with Chinese "cuisine" is our local Chinese take out,which never feature desserts. We think of Chinese food as purely savory and never get a chance to explore their uniquely delicious dessert culture.
To add some sweetness to your life, I've posted this cool video about Chinese desserts from Off the Great Wall, one of my favorite YouTube Channels dedicated to Chinese/Asian culinary culture.
I loved learning about the cultural significance of many of these desserts and how some of these yummy sweet treats have health benefits as well. The video is really interesting and will definitely stimulate your sweet tooth!
Watch it, run down to Chinatown, and go taste for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!
