"Dim Sum isn't a kungfu tecnique"

Reviewed by / Jul 24, 2013

A Chinese cookbook

Chinese cuisine is still a mystery for most of us who only know a few dishes and a handful of fun names that are quite discouraging. Jim He's apps about this millenary gastronomy helps to have in a single place a bunch of recipes explained step by step, ideal for keeping it at your side when fiddling with food in the kitchen looking for something healthy and original to prepare.

This app only allows to read the recipes. There's a result picture, but not photos of the steps taken. Likewise, there aren't videos or any further help beyond plain text. Therefore, you can prepare Kung Pao Chicken or any other tasteful dish thanks to this app, but it doesn't add anything to other already available websites you can easily access through your usual browser. Therefore, its main feature is to have a list of dishes by order, but with no chance of marking them as favorites or add comments whatsoever.

Developer's original description available here
“Dim sum (/ˈdɪmˈsʌm/) refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, wherein fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.
Eating dim sum at a restaurant is usually known in Cantonese as going to "drink tea", as tea is typically served with dim sum.” –from Wikipedia
