THE DIM SUM TRADITION
The word “dim sum” refers to a style of Chinese cuisine (particularly Cantonese but also other varieties) which includes a wide variety of dishes, served in small portions and consumed usually with tea. Their origin dates back to the times when travelers along the ancient silk route were refreshed in tearooms, where the ritual of Yum Cha (drinking tea) was accompanied by snacks often steamed, which took the name of “dim sum”.
