Hi thanks for the link may i ask what the wrappers look like. I am finding that dimsum is a cusine all to its own.

I made dimsum at the weekend using water boiling and cold , plain flour and oil and they were nice. But i am looking out for the best type of wrapper.

Thanks for your time

Dim-Sum is such a varied type of cuisine - containing myriad different
'creations' of differing incredients and tastes that it approaches
impossibility to completely define.

Where do you live? The only way to fully experience the impossibe complexity of Dim Sum is in a concentrated Chinese community.

I am fortunate to be wedded to a Cantonese woman who has introduced me and led me through the intricies of Dim Sum.

Dim Sum wrappers (not used in all dim sum dishes) can be made of wheat, rice, starch, beancurd.

I never heard of Dim Sum being a singular dish. It's a banquet of dishes -- all small ones

Please explain what you know as "Dim Sum." I'm very curious.

Nick - it is much much more than just dumplings with
different fillings.
It is braised chicken feet, steamed pork ribs, flavored rice 'congee',
tripe stew and more and more - each restaurant may make its'
own unique dim sum and often does.

curious where you learned that definition. As Mike said, dim sum does include dumplings, but is so very much more!

Altho I by no means consider Wikipedia the authority, there is a decent basic definition of Dim Sum here to get you started on the right track.
