Indulge your sweet tooth at the New England Dessert Showcase
Let’s face it: The New England Dessert Showcase is about as close to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory as you’re ever going to get. The fifth annual event brings together the region’s sweetest companies for a tasting extravaganza.
Businesses like Golden Cannoli, Boston Whoopie, McCrea’s Candies, Budi Products and Finale will be showing off wares ranging from designer desserts to ice cream to dessert wine. Besides more samples than you can probably handle, expect to find cooking demos and performances throughout the day.
Taking place at the Westin Boston Waterfront (425 Summer St.), the Showcase is open to the public. Advance tickets will range from $20-$75, and you can buy them at nedessertshowcase.com.
