So now that I’m back in Boston I’m thinking about all the foods that Boston is known for. You know, baked beans, sea food and what I want to talk about is the Boston Cream Pie. I had one before but not from the Omni Parker House (Hotel) which is down the street that I’m told it originated (I heard it on Chefs vs. City, which I loved) in 1856.
If you’ve ever seen a Boston Cream Pie, it does not look like a pie. It looks like a cake. Also explained to me via Chefs vs. City it is because it was baked in a cake pan not a pie tin.
To try the original Boston Cream Pie you can go to the Omni Parker House. Or if you go to their website (http://www.omnihotels.com/findahotel/bostonparkerhouse/dining.aspx) you can download their recipe and try to make it yourself! I think I’d love to try a piece first.
