Dimsum is an ideology, a culture born through perfection of a culinary style.
The term Dimsum was first seen in Chinese text over a thousand years ago referring to small snacks. It first carried the meaning ‘Gratitude’ and literally means ‘Touching the Heart’.
Dimsum is delicate, requiring skilful craftmanship. Each kind of Dimsum has its own set of standard. For example, the popular Shrimp Dumpling (Har Gau) should have at least 8 folds with thin skin close to translucent. A chef may take decades of experience to perfect a Har Gau.
Dimsim is an art. It is to appreciate from the shape, colour, smell, temperature, taste and texture. Each part of a dimsum reflects the perfection of details: from the skin, filling, shape to how it is served.
Dimsum is more than a form of culinary art, it reflects the ideology of Tao. It is a practice of Zen when one’s movement and mind integrate harmoniously with the piece of dimsum in hand.
