Edamame dumplings and Cantonese spring rolls: breakfast of champions? Yes, and it's called dim sum. More and more frequently, traces of dim sum can be found in dinner menus throughout the US, and we're not complaining. In fact, we recently snuck into a restaurant kitchen to see how the small dishes are made.

Carey Jones* even made some dim sum herself, under the careful guidance of Chef Yang Huang of Buddakan.
