Originating with the Cantonese in Guangzhou, the term ‘dim sum’ refers to a unique culinary art form of bite-sized sweet or savoury dishes prepared in a number of ways, most commonly steaming, baking or frying.
The literal translation of dim sum is ‘touch your heart’ and it is a dining tradition made for sharing. From the early morning Yum Cha meetings of the historic Silk Road travellers, to the modern-day restaurants that are frequented in cities around the world by work colleagues or for family get togethers.
To mark the first national celebration, Tattu has created a unique Dim Sum Tasting Platter (£20) that will be available between Saturday 30th June and Friday 6th July.
Designed for two to share, the platter features a selection of Tattu’s signature dim sum including, Har Gau XO or no, sweet miso Chilean sea bass dumplings, Wagyu dumplings, summer spring rolls and a lobster and prawn toast.
Guests can get involved in the celebrations by using the hashtag #doyoudimsum on social media.
