About Dim Sum, Here We Come!:

Dim Sum, Here We Come! book cover. In the foreground is a table with bowls of dim sum and two Asian children peering over the edge to look at the food. In the background is a whole family of people looking excited.

A celebration of the traditional Chinese customs passed on from generation to generation: togetherness, love, family--and FOOD! 

Today is Sunday and that means its dim sum time with my whole family! I can't wait to see everyone, especially Grandma.

I'm going to eat lots of shrimp dumplings, rice noodle rolls, egg tarts, and my favorite--char siu buns. We will have to order enough for us all to share.

So what are you waiting for? Dim sum, here we come!
