Unconsciously, the trend of dim sum has gone through several cycles.But dim sum, old and new, has its fans in this eclectic city of Guangzhou.Nostalgic dim sum: Meticulous shrimp dumplings, shaomai, char siu bao can be said to be the standard of drinking tea in Guangzhou, so it has become the standard to measure a teahouse’s products.”Shrimp dumplings” can be said to be the most popular varieties of morning tea, stuffing must have bamboo shoots, fat pork, shrimp meat, the three integration (expert called shrimp dumplings stuffing) is authentic.Some people may ask, “I don’t see any fat pork in shrimp dumplings!”This is because of the fat pork inside shrimp dumplings, it is to take a small number of chopped into velvet to join, seeking is moist and titian, fire a steamed, early fusion to shrimp glue.As for shrimps, it was shunde fresh water shrimps that dominated the market more than 20 years ago. Later, diners preferred large, red and crisp shrimps, so imported green shrimps became popular.Shrimp dumpling skin, the traditional saying is to lock the edge of 13 turns, but in fact, it is really to pinch the foot 13 folds, steamed after the grain will not be obvious, so the senior master generally knead 9 to 11 folds, will not knead again.● Shaomai Shaomai in Guangzhou is changeable, which condenses the painstaking efforts of guangzhou dim sum chefs.It is like the dry steamed shaomai, from the traditional pork filling to the fresh shrimp filling, and then the two points on the top, from egg yolk to crab meat and fish roe full of Oriental style, from north to south, and then the fusion of exotic elements, it is almost a miniature book of the historical changes of Guangzhou taste.Dry steamed shaomai, meat stuffing is the main body, so the pork to choose fresh pork, hand cut meat, each grain should be evenly, a cage of shaomai with 3 liang of meat.To make the filling, beat the shrimps together with a little salt until the pork is gelled.Out of the dry steamed shaomai to moderate fat, both delicious meat, and juicy sweet.● Char siu bao is the test of pastry chefs’ basic skills in kneading dough and filling.The traditional three-petal braised pork bun requires a high body in the shape of a bird cage, with a big belly and a broken mouth.To make this standard, the traditional natural fermentation method is used, without alkali or fermentation box, all depends on the hands of pastry chefs to control the time.Barbecued pork stuffing is more careful, with a mixture of 30 percent pork belly and 70 percent plum head pork char siu, the former with oil flavor, the latter with taste.Only in this way can you bite down on the steamed stuffed bun.
