I have to apologise again for not putting up a proper blog post this week (and also to anyone who's waiting for an email reply from me). I just have too much to do at the moment, and I'm still not getting enough sleep. So here's another photo of some tasty dim sum (from Gerrard's Corner in London Chinatown).

Description follows.

[Image: Fried and baked dim sum arranged in little paper cases on a white plate, with a red polystyrene flower in the middle for decoration. Clockwise from top left: egg tarts, barbecued pork puff pastry, and deep-fried turnip puff pastry.]

Speaking of dim sum, one of the many things I've been doing was a visit to Oxford yesterday, where I had a great dim sum lunch with a friend and her 8-month-old baby. This was said baby's first experience of dim sum, and she seemed pretty keen on it, particularly the tofu skin rolls.

I've been for dim sum with several babies and small children now, and it always seems to go down well. I might organise a baby/child-friendly dim sum outing in London in the New Year — if you'd be interested, please let me know.

I'm a dim sum addict so I'd have to borrow a little'un (my lad is 16 so probably doesn't qualify). I'd like to try those deep-fried turnip thingies.

My latest new experience was 薑葱牛柏葉 (jiāng cōng​ niú​ bǎi​ yè​), Beef Tripe with Ginger and Spring Onion, which kicked off your 2010 dim sum month (http://kake.dreamwidth.org/43981.html). This appeared on the local menu recently and I was pleased to see the evocative name used. Very nice it was too.
