Chinese Desserts *In-Person* *NEW*

Chinese desserts are not the sugary, sweet dishes we have in mind when we think of traditional Western desserts. China has many traditional treats, but they do not appear on the table as a sweet finish after dinner. According to the traditional Chinese diet, sweets are generally made with less sugar and eaten at breakfast or as snacks with tea. In this class, we will make China’s most popular breakfast sweet treat, sesame seed balls, as well as sweet rice dumplings, and the delightfully soupy Chinese dessert, taro and sweet potato balls.
