Saturday 30th June sees the beginning of National Dim Sum Week and so what better way to celebrate this weird occasion with something special from Tattu.
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.
