The Peninsula Hong Kong's dim sum kitchen is one of the most revered in the world. Don't leave without learning to make dim sum, one of Hong Kong's most popular dishes. Dim sum - meaning "to touch the heart" - gets its name from the fact that it used to be a snack, rather than a meal to languish over, in order to provide a little taste without being filling. This class pays tribute to this traditional custom, which is now a staple of Hong Kong dining culture and has shaped the way we cook and eat, and continues to evolve and influence eastern cuisine globally in restaurants today.
Take this once-in-a-lifetime experience and step into the kitchens to master dim sum making with gifted Dim Sum Chef, Henry Fong - all in one and a half hours. Learn the history of the popular Chinese delicacy before participating in a hands-on cooking session in the hotel's dim sum kitchen. A professional photographer will capture the action and hopefully a few smiling gems to take home. At the end of the journey, you will be able to try your own savoury dim sum including a little Chinese dessert at The Peninsula's award-winning Cantonese restaurant, Spring Moon.
Due to Spring Moon’s dedicated production of handmade mini egg custard mooncakes in its Dim Sum kitchen prior to the Mid-Autumn Festival, Dim Sum cooking classes will be suspended from August 15 through to September 20, 2013.
