Dumpling Book

"This is the best book ever!" Those were the words I heard when I gave this book to a fellow co-worker. She loves making "Asian" food and fell in love with this book. She even willingly gave up her lunchtime so she could take her time to read it from cover to cover.
She could not fathom why anyone would part with such a book, once it had been received. But now, she is cooking up something for her hubby and planning to visit the author at her restaurant in New York City.

I myself scanned the book before passing it onto her and I don't remember being too amazed. Maybe it was because I am Chinese and my mom makes dumplings all the time. To my co-worker, maybe it was different and she now has a book of secrets to share with her family.

Here is a blurb that was found online with this book: From the restaurant where adventurous foodies get the freshest dumplings in New York City, comes the ultimate Chinese cookbook with 60 recipes for classic and unexpected dumplings and dim sum-like side dishes. 

Whatever the lure is, read this book to find out!
