Helen and Lisa Tse have been cooking the original recipes that have been handed down through the generations of their family all their lives. Dim Sum they offer everyone a chance to experience the popular Sweet Mandarin Cookery School dim sum masterclass in their very own kitchen. Dim sum recipes span a huge variety of techniques and ingredients, and Helen and Lisa share their skills to demonstrate the perfect creation of an authentic Chinese experience at home with ease. The delicious recipes include Shanghai Dumplings, Mango and Prawn Rolls and Spare Ribs, favourites such as BBQ Skewers and Pork Dumplings, as well as more challenging dishes such as Chrysanthemum Shaped Pastry, Cuttlefish Dumplings, and a range of dim sum desserts.
Helen and Lisa Tse became their family's third generation of restaurateurs when they opened Sweet Mandarin in Manchester in 2004. Since launching their range of sauces they have been invited to Downing Street, released Sweet Mandarin Cookbook, and awarded MBEs in the New Year Honours List for services to the food and drink.
