In restaurants voices of young children
screaming "When will we have our dessert?" echo around the world. And
who can blame them. Indeed in every meal, everyone young and old would
be looking forward to enjoying this last course.
Why does everyone enjoy desserts so
much? A dessert's taste is its greatest asset. Everyone likes the
sweet sensation of desserts- a light hearted snack after a heavy main
course which will leave taste buds tingling. Texture also plays an
important role in making desserts desirable. It could be something
crunchy, like biscuits, of soft and fluffy, like jelly and ice-cream.
Asian desserts are available both hot
and cold. They are usually sweet or sour and include fruits, cakes,
sweet syrups and ices. It is amazing to note that even though Asian
dishes are the most savory in the world, Asians put equal effort in
making their desserts just as appealing.
Making a perfect dessert isn't a walk in
the park though. Like many other Asian dishes, Asian desserts require
meticulous preparation and correct combination of ingredients. A lot
of time and effort goes into making desserts attractive and tasty.
After indulging in Asian desserts, one
can't help but admit, they bring new meaning to the phrase "Saving the
best for last." Though an obsession for dessert may not be good for
health, it is indeed the world's guilty pleasure.
