Book giveaway — Dim Sum: a survival guide

Why limit yourself to the English menu when ordering dim sum? Cantonese teacher Liza Chu has a part-time career as a Hong Kong dim sum guide, and she has distilled her knowledge of Chinese cuisine and dining etiquette into a practical guidebook to eating out. Each photographed dish is identified with Chinese characters and pronunciation, and icons alert those with special diets.

This month’s prize is a copy of Liza’s new Dim Sum: a survival guide — your ticket into a world of adventurous and delicious dim sum.

All you need to do is answer this simple question: What drink is most closely associated with dim sum?

Send your answers to me at pete(at)blacksmithbooks(dot)com, and three winners will each receive a book. Asian mailing addresses only. Dai ga sik fan!

    Wow, I was so excited about the possibility of winning the book that I missed the part about Asian mailing addresses only before I fired off my e-mail. (I get excited at the possibility of obtaining free books!)
