Dim Sum can be intimidating for people whose foray into Chinese food has been limited to eating occasional take-out with a fork. Although sometimes it's best to throw caution to the wind, it's even better to bring along a book that will guide you to the taste you want and uncover the mysteries of those innocuous looking dumplings. A list of contents is provided, and there are even gorgeous pictures to point to when you're in doubt. Have Some Dim Sum also includes 20 recipes for when you want to cook at home, as well as illustrations of Chinese grocery items for your shopping ease.

I bought this book as a gift to my husband who adores dim sum but doesn't feel confident about ordering it. Out of curiosity, I 'borrowed' it back to make the shrimp rolls featured in the book. It's a lot easier to make than the beautiful results would have you think. The rolls were delicious & my family raved about them! I'm encouraged to make more and expand my repertory of Chinese food.
