“Dumplings are as popular in China as pizza is in America,” declares Lily Loh, and she goes on to tell us that almost everyone in China knows how to make dumplings. They are so popular because they are fun to eat, and they are always part of holiday meals. But you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to make dumplings. They are easy to make once you get the hang of folding the wrappers. Loh takes us step by step through the process of making the dumpling wrappers and provides a variety of filling options. Steaming and frying directions are included; photographs and drawings illustrate the wrapper making and pleating processes.
