What You'll Do
Although cheesesteaks and soft pretzels gobble up much of the fanfare, Philly's culinary landscape boasts a sweeter counterpart: gourmet desserts. Indulge your sweet tooth under the guidance of dessert guru Jennifer Reed as she leads walking groups to sites renowned for their sweets, as well as a few hidden gems.

The tour lasts two hours. Each tour is capped at 15 participants; each tour requires a minimum of 4 participants in order to take place.
With a personal philosophy of "Eat Dessert First," it's clear where Jennifer Reed's passions lie. Her penchant for desserts emerged at a young age, when her grandmother and aunt taught her how to make everything from cakes to pies to peanut-butter balls. Jennifer continues to pursue her love of all things sweet by taking pastry courses at the Restaurant School.
