Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie

The World of Sweet


Episode 37

Sweet doesn’t necessarily just mean dessert—it is a basic flavor element in all types of food in cultures around the world. We’ll attend a traditional Moroccan tea ceremony, complete with amazing sugared pastries, then travel to Shanghai to sample a sweet meat dish. From Morocco to Vietnam to Shanghai, we’ll discover the many uses of sugar and learn why it’s an ingredient we simply can’t live without. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, we’ll share the gooey goodness of a homemade marshmallow.
