    The perfect way to eat dumplings is with someone else cooking them, so you get a steady supply, hot and fresh. Too bad for the cook, tho…

    I’m not sure. Pierogis are very good. I like chicken soup with dumplings but I never make it and I am not sure I know how. I am curious to see the index on this book.

  • Pizzacat13  on  May 18, 2021

    I love traditional japanese gyoza. Fried, then steamed, with a nice crispy hane. A bowl of rice, soy sauce and hot mustard and a side of japanese pickles- I’m drooling!

    Homemade pierogi – potato and cheese or kraut.

  • trudys_person  on  June 3, 2021

    I don’t think I’ve met a dumpling I didn’t like … my Mom’s dumplings on beef stew are good, but I don’t think that’s the kind of dumpling they’re talking about here. I love a good vegetarian gyoza, pierogies, all the dumplings served at dim sum …
