Dim sum at home, anyone?

Charles Phan, chef-owner of San Francisco’s pioneering the Slanted Door, was boiling up bowls of Vietnamese noodle soup long before most Americans had ever heard of pho or knew how to pronounce it properly. That is to say, way before it was cool. In his second cookbook, a tribute to the chef’s modern restaurant in the Ferry Building, he details the stories behind his favorite dishes, like these delicious chive cakes.

These chive cakes are a classic Chinese dim sum dish that has proved extremely popular at the Slanted Door. They’re great served as hors d’oeuvres at a party, especially because you can make them ahead and simply reheat as necessary.
