Mandarin Monday: Dumpling Days


Maybe it was in celebration of finally completing our chapter of the month, Dumpling Days, by the lovely Grace Lin or maybe she just felt she was in party prep mode, Ms. O decided we would have a shindig.

If you like dumplings, it's worth making your own skins. These were a gluten free version prepped with rice flour. The dough is silky soft and rolls out so well.

Our filling left much to be desired.
We sauteed some grated veggie, but should have followed a recipe.

We love Grace Lin's picture books, so it was interesting to make the switch to her novels for youth.
If you're interested in taking a trip to Taiwan, this is loaded with culture and folklore, especially in the dumpling department!
