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!
