Guangzhou is the land of dim sum and this trip back certainly reignited my love and craving for it. The durian pastries here looked like mini bombs, I joked. Please keep those away from me, but I’d gladly eat the three dumplings!

Dumplings with wine? Why not! White wine goes with anything, especially some super delicious dumplings. Cheers, and bon appetit!

Last Saturdays some friends and I made 303 dumplings for a huge feast. A lady at church showed her supreme skills by dying part of the dough green with spinach juice and making dumplings into the shape of Chinese cabbages. How beautiful they were!

When thinking of food items that are enveloped, many classic Chinese dishes come to mind – zongzi (stuffed sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leafs), spring rolls, baozi (stuffed buns), and of course the ever so famous dumplings, or jiaozi. These are a must-eat during Chinese new year. Juicy, savoury fillings wrapped in a skin made of dough, ready to be devoured…yum!
