Going through one of my bookshelf the other day I came across a book I meant to mention here for some time.
The book is calle “Have Some Dim Sum” and was written by a good friend of mine, Evelyn Chau.
If you enjoy Dim Sum and always wanted to know more about it or even how to prepare some of these dishes yourself, this book is for you.
Or perhaps you are always a bit intimidated at a Dim Sum restaurant wondering what it is you are looking at?
After alll, there could be as many as 60 or 70 different items to choose from!
In Have Some Dim Sum, Evelyn Chau takes the mystery out of dim sum dining.
Not only does Chau explore the evolution of Dim Sum but also has some 20 clearly written recipes and the book is generously illustrated with gorgeous photographs by well known Toronto food photographer Vince Noguchi.
After reading the book youâ€™ll know that when you are ordering Ha Guen you are getting those delicious shrimp balls you love so much Â and that Chinese Tapioca Pudding is made with tapioca pearls and lotus paste.
