Producer Profile: Cheang’s Sinofood
If you’ve visited Cheang’s table at the Farmer’s Market, it doesn’t take long to fall in love with authentic Dim Sum that’s hand made. We’re very pleased to be able to offer Cheang’s Sinofood in our store as well!
“Chinese cuisine has a long and varied history,” says co-owner Paddy Cheang. “Different styles contribute to Chinese cusinine but perhaps the best known are Cantonese and Dim Sum dishes.”
The husband-and-wife team behind Cheang’s worked in Dim Sum restaurants in China for over a decade before moving to Canada. They are most concerned with the freshness and quality of the ingredients they use to make their food, and their time and care is evident in the dishes they make.
Going out for Dim Sum is about small bites; traditionally, the dishes are pushed on carts through the restaurant and diners make their selections without leaving their tables. Traditional Dim Sum brunch includes dumplings, sticky rice, and steamed buns. The fillings are typically a wide range of choices: chicken, prawns, beef, or vegetables.
Bring home a Dim Sum outing for yourself – try Cheang’s dumplings, steam buns or classic sticky rice. All of Cheang’s dishes are made fresh, then frozen, ready for you to just heat, eat and enjoy. You can also add your own dipping sauce by mixing hoisin sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil to taste in a small dish.
How to enjoy Cheang’s Sinofood Dim Sum:
Frozen steamed buns: Using a steam cooker (or double boiler pot), reheat the buns from frozen for about 15 minutes, letting them thaw & cook in the steam. Two buns per package. Available in BBQ pork or Chicken Curry.
