The first Duta Damai or Peace Ambassadors candle light bonding-dinner at Home of Peace (HoPe) was made special when those who came learned to make a delicacy that was in the past, unfamiliar to them. Dim Sum! They were little and cute, but yummy.

Today, nasi lemak and roti canai are cooked in many Malaysians’ kitchen. In fact, ‘sambal petai’ and steam boat, which used to be popular among some ethnic groups only, are now becoming favourite dishes among Malaysians. However, most non-Chinese Malaysians have not yet explored cooking dim sum, a Chinese delicacy, at their home. Shrimp Dim Sum recipe that was concocted at Home of Peace is certainly easy to follow. This month, Mark Lim from Arts Malaysia, was HoPe’s guest to teach cooking. Thank you for your kind support Mark!

This ‘Diversity Dining’ is conceptualized and organized by the Blue Ribbon initiative. It will be a signature event of Home of Peace and will be organized on monthly basis. It’s objective is to enrich Malaysians’ experience in living together in a diversified community by learning about each other through cooking and dining. Its hope is to promote love, peace and respect as foundational values for nation building.
