Chinese Street Food - Dim Sum

£40.00

Location – Parrs Wood High School, 10am-4pm

29th January // 30th April // 17th September 

Dim Sum (點心) is a style of Chinese cuisine that originates from the Cantonese-speaking areas of Hong Kong and Southern China. Literally translated Dim () means ‘touch’ and Sum () means ‘heart’, as the dishes were originally created as light snacks served with tea rather than stomach-filling meals.

During this class, you will learn to cook light bites that are popular in Dim Sum restaurants all over the world using a mixture of techniques that you can replicate and adapt over and over again to impress your friends and family. These traditional Cantonese snacks are lesser-known in British Chinese restaurants and takeaways, so come prepared to challenge your tastebuds and expand your knowledge on regional Chinese flavours.

Sam has a wealth of experience in teaching all the in’s and out’s of East and Southeast Asian cooking; from the traditions and culture around the recipes to using alternative ingredients that are more readily available to you in supermarkets and shops near you.

This class is not suitable for people with nut allergies.

 

How are you involved in the CGF work?

I have been working with CGF since 2014, starting off as a volunteer before I became a Coordinator on the Community projects and the Cookery School. I now work as a Cooking Leader teaching the Cantonese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese Cookery Classes. I also work on alongside other Cookery Leaders to deliver cookery classes in the community both in-person and online.

What are your food inspirations?

I really enjoy learning from other people, their traditional foods, and the stories behind their recipes. I think it is really important to keep traditional recipes alive and celebrate their origins. I take inspiration from the places I have traveled to as I try to take cookery classes to learn how to cook the local cuisines.

What do you do in your spare time?

When I’m not working I like to eat out, practice yoga, and travel. As I’m usually working with food all day, it’s a treat for me to have my dinner cooked for me! I also enjoy pottering around my patio garden, where I’m experimenting with growing more unusual crops in a limited amount of space.
