Holy cow, I wrote a book!
The folks over at
have put together this marvelous
Essential Guide To Dim Sum.
The field guide includes pictures of dim sum offerings,
organized by food preparation style,
then sub-categorized by physical appearance.
Each dish is accompanied by its name in three languages
(English, Mandarin Chinese, and Cantonese),
along with symbolic information
similar to a clothing care tag
that encodes information like recommended method of eating.
Save some radish cakes for me.
