Rumor Has It That Parker’s Restaurant In Massachusetts Is The Birthplace Of The Boston Cream Pie
Everyone from Massachusetts knows that Boston cream pie is our state’s official dessert, and can probably tell you all of the best places to find one. Despite being more of a cake than a pie, this sweet treat has won the hearts of many Bay Staters, and we’ll argue with you all day about why it doesn’t matter if it’s a cake. However, not many Bostonians know the detailed history of our state’s dessert. Boston cream pie was first created by a chef at Parker’s Restaurant, which is located inside the Omni Parker House hotel, and you can still order a classic pie straight from it’s birthplace today.
