The Dim Sim Chronicles

From the goldfields to the deep fryer and beyond

Discover the stories behind this iconic Australian snack through the descendants of William Chen Wing Young, the son of a goldrush era Chinese migrant and inventor of the Dim Sim.

Celebrity chef Elisabeth Chong, daughter Angie Chong and granddaughter Teresa Duddy Chong lead the discussion, tastings and demonstrations in homage to this much-loved migration morsel we couldn’t do without.

Explore fascinating family histories, secrets to cooking dumpling and dim sim, and the lasting legacy of Chinese migration to the Australian culinary landscape.
