Enjoy this great experience learning about Dim Sum and visiting a Wet Market! Originally a Cantonese custom, dim sum is inextricably linked to the Chinese tradition of "yum cha" or drinking tea. Today, dim sum is served throughout China. Each region has their own specialties. dim sum consists of a variety of dumplings, steamed dishes and other goodies. Your class host will pick you up from the meeting point at 2:00pm, and then start a interesting wet market visit near by where you will learn how to pick out the best vegetables and bargain for the best prices. Haggling is a very fun activity that is very different to shopping in western culture and is an experience you do not want to miss out on. After wet market visit, we will teach you about traditional Shanghainese and Cantonese dim sum, such as the most famous shanghainese dim sum ''xiaolongbao'' (soup dumpling), wontons and those wonderful shrimp dumplings with the translucent skin. There are also fried treats including mini spring rolls and fired dumplings. Discover more dishes on our website. Please kindly note: Dimsum is challenging, it's a little bit difficult to make it perfect in your first time. As long as you know how to make it, anything else you need is to practice. Practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the better it will be.
