Big Frog, brandishing his chopsticks: Just think. If I had never met you, I would have lived my whole life without ever having har gow. Or shu mai.
Middle Frog: That would be sad. I would cry.

BTW, book recommendation: The Last Chinese Chef, by Nicole Mones. But don't read hungry.
Have you ever considered that, of all the food cultures, only in Chinese cooking is everything served family style? Instead of getting one dish for you personally, everyone gets an empty plate and eats a little of everything served for the table.
