I’ve bought some dumplings for dinner today. Yum!

Do you know that many countries have their own types of dumplings? I’ve tried a few, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Italian and Polish.

I don’t know who was the first person to make dumplings, it’s such a good idea isn’t it? It’s a meal by its own and often quick to cook. You can almost put anything in the dumplings as fillings, make it sweet or savoury; make it meaty or vegetarian. It’s so versatile.

It is also a family affair. Dumplings were the main dish on the Chinese New Year’s Eve. Family members would gather in the kitchen, the adults are in charge of making the dumplings sheets from flour and chop up whatever that was meant for the filling. Children often were tasked to make the the dumplings.
