  • About

These traditional desserts are readily available in common eateries or dessert shops in Beijing. It’s hard to believe that they claim their provenance from the Imperial palace, and were once served as snacks to emperors and consorts. It is impossible to discuss the desserts in Beijing cuisine and not mention these; they are a unique reminder of Beijing’s history.
