This is a great cookbook about dumplings Savory dumplings and sweet dessert dumplings All mouthwatering The author does a nice job introducing the dumpling and its connection to her It seems as if the dumpling allowed her to integrate into the Chinese culture She has taken her love of this food and transformed it into a receptical for Asian, Mexican and holiday leftover fillings She also explains wok use which, always having a gas stove, did not realize the electric stove could prove problematic unless you a flat bottom wok I ve put several dumplings and sauces on my to make list and wrote the ingredients on my shopping list I have made empanadas so I m hopeful I can make up dumplings that will look like what s on the pages of the cookbook However she does recommend the dumpling maker which I think is a great idea, especially for uniformity She also admits that some ingredients may be difficult to find unless you head to a specialty grocery store I will probably pass on those recipes This is a good book to have on hand especially for making something for parties or make ahead and freeze I am recommending you add this book to your cookbook library Now I m looking forward to her second dumpling cookbook for even mouthwatering recipes I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
