"The very thought of preparing dim sum from scratch stops most home cooks before they start. All that painstaking slicing, chopping, wrapping, steaming and frying....But DIM SUM: THE ESSENTIAL KITCHEN by Vicki Liley changed my mind. Once the marketing was done...I was able to whip up six dishes in about an hour. The payoff? An impressive and delicious array of hot appetizers for four people."Liley, Vicki is the author of 'Dim Sum' with ISBN 9789625935287 and ISBN 9625935282.
