Yum Cha is a Chinese dining experience where you drink tea and eat Dim Sum, which are small savoury or sweet foods such as dumplings and spring rolls.
This is a simple recipe for Char Siu Bau. A wok equipped with a stainless steel steam plate (a plate with holes to allow steam to pass) is required to make these. You will also need to follow the recipe on this site for Chinese Steamed Buns

This is a classic Chinese starter that is perfect if you are preparing an Asian-themed meal. It's a great one to choose if you are feeding children – they love the excuse to eat with their hands.

This is a great Cantonese style dumpling that combines a filling of seasoned pork mince and a whole prawn; it can be fried or boiled to serve.

This is one for the tofu fans- a sweet and spicy marinade of orange juice, rice vinegar and Asian spices. A great starter.
