The Dumpling Galaxy Cookbook
by Helen You , Max Falkowitz
From one of Eater's 38 best restaurants in America—which has been hailed by the New York magazine, Michelin Guide, and more for serving the freshest dumplings in New York City—comes the ultimate Chinese cookbook with 60 dumping recipes and dim sum-like sides.
New York Times critic Pete Wells calls Helen You "a kind of genius for creating miniature worlds of flavor" and, indeed her recipes redefine the dumpling: Lamb and Green Squash with Sichuan pepper; Spicy Shrimp and Celery; Wood Ear Mushroom and Cabbage; and desserts such as Sweet Pumpkin and Black Sesame Tang Yuan. With information on the elements of a great dumpling, stunning photography, and detailed instructions for folding and cooking dumplings, this cookbook is a jumping-off point for creating your own galaxy of flavors.
