  1. It's been out of print for a while so it can be tough to find, but Rhoda Yee's "Dim Sum: The Delicious Secrets of Home-Cooked Chinese Tea Lunch" is good.

    (Disclaimer: I used to know her as 'Auntie Rhoda'.]

    1. I second the recommendation for Rhoda Yee's book. Another very good resource is Mai Leung's "Dim Sum and Other Chinese Street Food", also out of print but used copies can be found, just google the book and author; Alibris has a number of copies available.

      1. I would recommend two books, Asian Dumplings by Andrea Nguyen. She also has a good website with videos on.

        The 2nd book is Chinese Dim sum the publisher is wei chuan. Not sure if this book is still in print or not but it covers most of what you will probably want.

        Good luck in your dim sum adventure

        1. I have been really pleased with Florence Lin's "Complete Book of Chinese Noodles, Dumplings and Breads"

          1. The books mentioned thus far sound great. I have Eileen Yin Fei Lo's Mastering the art of Chinese cooking and it has a great chapter on dim sum plus a whole lot more.
