50 Shades Of Tokyo Desserts_Logo.jpegI am super excited to launch my new blog series – 50 Shades of Tokyo Desserts. The challenge is simple: 50 desserts over 12 months and 1 food & travel blogger in pursuit of her next best dessert around Tokyo. When it comes to cross-cultural experiences, one of the best ways to fully immerse into foreign cultures and customs is to discover varied and vibrant flavors of our travel destinations. When discussing outstanding Japanese cuisine the world has heard way too much about the freshest sushi, scrumptious wagyu steak and soul warming bowl of tonkatsu ramen.  However, as I continue to explore local food scene I want to feature the sweeter side of Tokyo, something that I find to be unfairly underrepresented. I believe that desserts are one of the best ways to bring cultures together. Who doesn’t enjoy sampling sweet treats from around the world? With an itinerary that includes the crème de la crème of luxurious patisseries and refined historic confectioneries I plan to taste and tell you the story of Tokyo’s most sublime and iconic desserts. So, make sure to follow my blog and follow 50 Shades of Tokyo Desserts on Facebook to stay abreast of my enticing and sugar high adventures of 2016!
