Dim Sum is a wonderful way to experience how diverse and flavorful Chinese cuisine can be. Dim Sum includes snacks and small dishes of different flavors and textures along with tea over conversation. In this fun hands-on class, we’ll talk about the history, etiquette and classic dishes of Dim Sum. We’ll make popular dim sum dishes from Jade’s hometown including steamed spareribs with rice flour, pearl meatballs, a vegetable side dish, and a tomato egg drop soup.
