The next time a dim sum cart comes by with an array of mysterious but tasty-looking morsels, quickly consult Phillips’ compact directory of more than 70 of the most common Cantonese varieties, both savory and sweet. The author of All Under Heaven provides line drawings (including a guide to typical sizes); descriptions of content, taste, and texture; information on origins and common variations; and notes on standard sauces and plate arrangements to aid recognition. Names are rendered in English and in Cantonese, with a pronunciation guide as well as the Chinese characters.

Line drawings. Hardcover.
