Hi Amanda, we live in a different world don't we but good to see you wanting to know all about our food.  To explain a dim sim I googled it and Wikipedia dictionary explained it as - a meat dumpling made from pork (you can use other meats like chicken) which is steamed or deep fried and served with soy sauce.  It was developed in Melbourne but was undoubtedly inspired by the authentic chinese meal called dim sum.

I made them from a recipe submitted by karenleigh of Canberra to another Karen in Canberra's blog page - as long as you can buy the gow gee wrappers over there, they are simple to make.  Try a chinese grocery for them. The recipe was adapted from one in the book 'Full Steam Ahead" - do you have that book for your TM.  The whole book is more suited to European countries than Australia and they make the pastry themselves - it is far easier to buy it ready made and it is as cheap as!
