Before the invention of dessert, mankind had to make do with "nature's dessert"—fermented cabbage, fruit the monkeys didn't want, and live, feather-covered Peeps. Celebrate man's triumph over nature with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a general-admission ticket to The 2010 New England Dessert Showcase (a $35 value). The showcase takes place on September 18 at Westin Copley Place from noon until 5 p.m.
The New England Dessert Showcase is a yearly meeting of sweet-tooth satisfiers from the gourmet dining, pastry, ice cream, baking, chocolate, catering, and liquor industries. With your general-admission ticket, you'll have access to a cluster of confectionary delights and sugary happenings throughout the day. Sample the best desserts in New England while hourly live demos impart delicious morsels of wisdom and help you understand why a slab of cookie dough in the toaster never turns into taffy. Door prizes and charity raffles offer lucky attendees the chance to win restaurant offerings, private tastings, front-row Red Sox tickets, and more.
Yelpers give The New England Dessert Showcase an average of three stars:
- Chocolate, brownies, cheesecake, ice creams, dessert coffees and liqueurs, cookies and truffles for days and days. It's basically an opportunity for local bakeries, restaurants, caterers and other businesses who serve sweets to showcase their scrumptious items to other businesses and to the public. Yay for us! – Janice T., Yelp
