More About

Dim sum means "to touch the heart" or "a little bit of heart." The other name for this morning meal is yum cha, which means "to drink tea." According to Maeve O'Meara, an Australian food writer who wrote the cookbook's foreword, the dim sum tradition began in the Guangzhou (Canton) region of China when teahouses began offering small snacks to attract customers. This Chinese happy-hour buffet evolved into a culinary art form with elaborately stylized creations. Restaurants in Hong Kong sometimes serve a couple of hundred different dishes with hot tea at breakfast and lunch.
