Dim Sum for the Mind, Body and Soul

dim sum

The most important part of dim sum for me is the people I am sharing it with. It is a reason to get together.  This Sunday, for example, I will be getting re-acquainted with a group of friends and classmates that I have not seen in years.  The basis for getting together is simply to share dim sum.  There is no birthday, anniversary, graduation or other normal celebration.  It is simply to share an interesting meal that will start with light steamed dishes such as har gow, followed by heavier items like pot stickers and then exotic foods followed by sweets for dessert.  The celebration is just dim sum and it can be called at any time of the year.

The dishes and way they are served is what makes dim sum perfect for calling people together. Casually socializing while waiting for the rolling carts to come with the next interesting dish makes for good conversation.  Conversing with friends and family is good for the mind and soul.  What keeps the event interesting is that most dim sum restaurants have a dazzling array of foods available.  I frequently see siu may, steamed buns with barbecued pork, sweet steamed buns filled with bean paste, chicken feet and my favorite, shrimp wrapped in bean curd skin.  These things are good for the body because they make my tummy very happy.
