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 and Shrimp Shao Mai Dumplings; Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce; Hot Peppers Stuffed with Fish and Shrimp Paste; Chicken and Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaves; Egg Custard Tarts.
