Tuesday, March 31st

Bowery Culinary Center, 2nd floor, $50

Dim sum literally means “a touch of the heart” because you share a variety of small, lovingly prepared dishes with family and friends. It is a Cantonese tradition that became popular in teahouses along southern China, where weary travelers would stop for a cup of tea and some food. Culinary Center Educator Wai Chu will discuss how this meal has become a ritual for so many Chinese families, and he’ll show you how to make authentic dim sum in your home kitchen.

On the Menu: Pork & Shrimp Shao Mai Dumplings; Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce; Seafood-Stuffed Hot Peppers; Chicken & Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaves; Egg Custard Tarts.
Instructor: Wai Chu, Culinary Center Educator
