In the lead-up to this most auspicious time on the Chinese calendar, please join us at Canton Table on the historic Bund. Canton Table combines the nostalgic style of the shikumen with modern simplicity, while providing us with a magnificent Shanghai skyline view. The team at Canton Table, headed by 30-year veteran Master Chef Eason Man, has designed a fabulous selection of Cantonese-style dim sum for us to share and enjoy. As an added bonus, we have invited Historian Janny Chun to talk to us about the history and traditions of this family-oriented festival and how it has changed in modern times.
