For centuries Dim Sum has been an integral tradition in Chinese culture and history. While its origins are widely debated, most scholars agree that Dim Sum’s roots are found in old Chinese tea houses where snacks were offered by proprietors to accompany travelers’ beverage stops. Along the Silk Road particularly, tea houses were enormously popular centuries ago. Over the years, Dim Sum evolved into a family tradition of combining breakfast and lunch, which in the West is obviously known as Brunch. Similar to Spanish Tapas, Dim Sum involves the enjoyment of a wide variety of small dishes, all meant to pair harmoniously with different teas. The art of Dim Sum requires decades of study and practice by its makers. From har kow to siu mai and cha shao pao, each dish is carefully prepared with expert precision and intense passion for this cultural heritage.
