Even though I have been making dim sum for many years, I found some of the instructions in this book made no sense at all. This book could have benefited greatly from more rigorous editing.

Example: Page 79, Flower Buns.
In the first instruction we are directed to cut the dough into 25g portions. Then in the 4th instruction we are again directed to cut the dough into 25g portions. No matter how I interpret the intervening instructions, I see no way a 25g portion can be cut into a 25g portion. So I must be a complete idiot (always a possibility - I'll be happy to alter my rating if that is the case). My guess is that the first instruction should be completely ignored and that the portioning be done after rolling the dough into a thin sheet, brushed with the oil and sprinkled with the scallions, and then rolled up like a Swiss roll. Then it makes sense to cut into portions. Any one got a better idea?

I read a review on this book and was excited, since the review said it contained easy to follow instructions on how to make dim sum. I'm Chinese, and grew up working in a restaurant and I already know how to make some types of dim sum, but wanted to expand my repertoire. I was disappointed that the book didn't contain detailed instructions at all, especially for the different ways of sealing each type of dim sum. Most, if not all of the instructions said "seal with small folds"...that doesn't tell me anything! Also the measurements are in grams, not teaspoons or tablespoons, e.g. 10g of sugar, which I found odd. The book also contains recipes for non-dim sum dishes, but again, vague instructions and I found the cooking time too short for the eggplant dish. The book says 2 - 3 mins, but I found it was closer to 10 - 15 mins.

I don't think this is a book for beginner cooks and I certainly wouldn't agree that the instructions were easy to follow.

I normally don't do that. I put cookbooks like that back on the shelf and forget about them. Dear authors! Why? The informational structure of the book and the idea to explore different Asian dumplings through the array of flours is great. But why didn't you test your recipes? The photography is inspiring — I am obsessed now to find out how to make that beautiful lace on pot stickers. I've got your book because of that recipe. And because of fluffy steamed pork buns. And because of your recipes for the net dumplings. None of them work. None. If you are sure your recipes do not work on my kitchen because I am doing something wrong, please contact me.
