Introduction to Dim Sum:
Dim Sum are small portions of bite-sized pieces of food originating from Southern China, specifically from Hong Kong. Dim Sum is a morning tradition with some restaurants opening as early six o’clock. It is normally associated with Yum Cha, the act of drinking tea, so the two phrases are now commonly used together. Dim Sum means ‘touch the heart’ in Chinese. The small portions were intended to touch the heart and not sate the appetite. Dim Sum is now very popular all over the world and you can find a Dim Sum restaurant almost anywhere.
History of Dim Sum:
This traditional style of Cantonese food that dates back thousands of years. Those who travelled along the ancient Silk Road through China would often need a place to rest before continuing on their journey. As a result of this, teahouses opened up along the roadside of southern China. It was then discovered that tea aids digestion, so the tea house owners began offering small bite-sized snacks along side the tea, and thus Dim Sum was born.
