The art of Dim Sum - one of China's most beloved culinary contributions, in a beautifully designed gift package of recipes and watercolours from the award-winning author of Every Grain of Rice. The English translation of dim sum is "heart's delight", words that perfectly describe the tasty morsels attracting crowds to the dim sum restaurants cropping up all over the US. In a book that will delight the hearts (and palates) of dim sum aficionados, Ellen Blonder presents 60 simple, reliable, and always authentic recipes for homemade, steamed and fried dumplings, meat or shrimp balls, steamed buns, Chinese pastries, and other savoury treats. Written in a clear, engaging style and illustrated with Blonder's delicate, full colour artwork, Dim Sum takes readers step by step through each preparation, from crimping dumpling skins to folding banana leaves for steaming scallop-studded rice balls, to freezing a variety of delicacies for an impressive, almost effortless dim sum party of brunch.
Drawing on the expertise of family cooks and well known chefs both here and in Hong Kong, Blonder teaches techniques that can be easily mastered by the home cook and provides alternative versions of traditional fillings to satisfy today's health-conscious eaters.
