My family is a big believer in weekend dim sum consumption, who can blame us... Dim sum is the name of a Chinese cuisine that consists of a variety of light dishes accompanied by Chinese tea. These "light dishes" translate into individual dumplings filled with scrumptious goodness :) Actually, there are other dishes too besides just dumplings, like the pan-fried carrot cake, garlic broccoli, crispy seafood noodles, crunchy prawn and mango, baked bbq pork bun etc. In fact, the whole experience is called yum cha literally meaning "drinking tea". Keep in mind that dim sum is usually served between the hours of 11am-2 pm; give or take. Wouldn't want you to miss out arriving at 4pm for the yum cha experience!
In the process of soul-searching and determining how to combine my passions and energy in the "real world." I know it will be something revolving around my two favorite F-words: Food & Fashion. Patti's Palette is an outlet for me to share the great gift of food that I enjoy with my loves: Family, J, and Friends. Xo
