Being Chinese – Dim Sum

12

Do you like dim sum?  Did you know that the two words in Chinese means “touch the heart?”

dim-sumThey are always served in small satisfying amounts to warm the heart and appease the stomach and there is a wide array to choose from such as ha-gow, siu-my, fun-gore (steamed dumplings) beef balls, barbeque pork buns, noodle rolls and even small dishes of black bean spareribs, broccoli and chow mein.

These favorite assortments of delectable mouth-watering morsels are wheeled to your table on food carts to choose from and they are not limited to any set time of day either.  These little savory yummy tidbits, both sweet and salty have their own unique delicious flavor and are available usually all day long and can be eaten at any time, such as mornings, noon, mid-afternoon or even for “sieu yeh” a late night snack.

It’s better to go with your family or a large group.  That way you can select and try more dishes and I’m sure that you’ll be happy that you did.

    Add heavy cream and use a hand blender to mix and smooth out the texture. Unless you want it to remain chunky style then don’t use the "boat motor".
