      Andrea Nguyen, Asian Dumplings: Mastering Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More (Ten Speed Press, 2009)Asian dumplings are almost a staple food for anyone who patronizes Chinese restaurants. In most places, you have a choice of one or two types (even at most buffets), but every once in a while you stumble across a dim sum restaurant, or a place where they've got a gifted dumpling maker in the kitchen, and you get a better survey of the available options. But I have yet to run across a restauran [...]

      Love, love, love dumplings. This book took me a while to get into, because after reading the first part of the book, making dumplings seemed complicated. But once you figure out that dumpling dough is literally just flour and water, and that you're being given instructions for how to cook dumplings in a myriad of ways (you only need to pick one!) you're off and running. Flavors are authentic - looking forward to trying out many more recipes from this book this year.

    3. Gregsamsa on said:

      I cannot recommend the spring rolls in this book fervently enough. I cannot recommend the recipe for samosa dough AT ALL. Do not use it. I don't care how neatly you seal them, how carefully you crimp them, or how hermetically fused they seem when they're raw, those suckers will split open when they hit the oil. Stick to the more basic flour/oil/salt/water/spice version and you'll be fine.

    4. Pattie Tierney on said:

      One of the most comprehensive guides to making Asian dumplings that I've ever read. Good background, detailed instructions, ample illustrations, lots of pictures, and a wide variety of recipes for all tastes and skill levels.

    5. Jeannie on said:

      WONDERFUL BOOK. Highly recommended! The kindle version comes with embedded instructional videos that demo inside secret tips and tricks. Tons of recipes to build upon

    6. Jessica Cao on said:

      I would highly recommend this book to anyone starting out their adventure into the world of dumpling.

    7. Fred Kohn on said:

      I loved reading this book which was as much an adventure into Asian culture as it was a cookbook. The recipes are all labor-intensive, and I will likely try only a few of them. The one I tried so far was amazing!

    8. Darren on said:

      Who would have thought that the humble dumpling could have so many variants, be so different and yet relatively simple to make. When one eats a dumpling, whether Dim Sum, Samosa, Spring Roll or other Asian forms one can be forgiven for writing them off as simple fare, yet reality can be a lot different.In an explosion of mouth-watering colour the author has put the humble dumpling dish under the spotlight and makes the reader understand that a simple-looking foodstuff is, in fact, a collection o [...]

      Andrea Ngyuen’s Asian Dumplings: Mastering Gyōza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More had me reminiscing of my time living in China, eating stuffed steam buns for breakfast and fried dumplings late at night from a street vendor that hung around when everyone else had cleared the roads outside my apartment. Nguyen does an excellent job describing different kinds of dumplings, buns, rolls/wraps, and pastries from East, Southeast, and South Asia. Actually, it made me a little homesick.There are some [...]

      I have no idea why this book gets the great reviews it gets on amazon and on . I tried out 6 recipes and all ranged between mediocre to catastrophe. I just finished making Indian sweet dumplings and they collapsed in the syrup for it. Seriously fuck this book. I love dumplings and I was looking forward to learning some great techniques on making various types of dumplings. I think the author should have given tips on how to use store bought square wonton sheets, because not all of us have the ti [...]

      I've made the wheat starch dough and 2 types of dumplings from this book so far, har gow and chiu chow. Delicious and the taste was spot on for both. The directions are excellent--good descriptions of how things should feel and look, and she offers clear techniques that are easy to follow. I am not left wondering how to achieve a certain fold. The tips are also very helpful. I can discern that Andrea Nguyen is a very accomplished, thoughtful, and thorough food writer who has tested her own recip [...]

      I've made only a couple recipes so far for gyoza and dipping sauces, but am pleased overall. The gyoza turned out looking spectacularly with a delicious tender and crispy texture. The accompanying dipping sauce tasted spot-on. The only complaint so far is for the gyoza filling. The texture was good, but I will double the amount of seasoning next time since the flavor was rather bland. Nevertheless, the instructions for making and assembling the dumplings are very clear, and the photographs are e [...]

      This is my all time favourite cookbook. I love how she covers basics from shapes to ingredients. I spent 5 days in a row making dumplings.I think its organized perfectly, especially by dough type, so its easy to plan out recipes in advance. I tackled basic doughs first for my 5 day marathon. My faces include Pork and Napa Cabbage Water Dumplings = awesomeness. Pea pod shape and half moon shape mastered. ChasaoBao were pretty tricky but camera out delicious. Shaomai were great but the open satche [...]

      This is one of my favorite cookbooks. One to grab when the zombie apocalypse begins. Andrea Nguyen makes the process so simple, so understandable that it's very unlikely you'll go wrong. There are many beautiful photos, many step-by-step instructions. This is one instance where everything came together to produce a cookbook that really gets it right.

    15. Kali on said:

      This was fun to read, but making dumplings is a lot of work. I also bought it about a month before I gave up carbs, so until I figure out how to make a good steamed bun with coconut flour, I'm out of luck

    16. Charcoal on said:

      The book has a wide variety of different dumpling recipes. It also has instructions for how to make the wrappers yourself. There are a good number of pictures in there. I don't think I would make any of the items in the book, though.

    17. Shannon on said:

      I thought the recipes were too wordy and could have been much more direct and succinct. I really appreciated the short cuts she included, like using refrigerated puff pastry instead of making your own. I made the samosa which turned out well.

    18. Catherine Woodman on said:

      Phenomenal range of my absolute favorite food--empanadas, shu mei, bao, samosasd on and on

    19. Katie on said:

      All I can say is mmmmmmmmmd so easy to follow, amazing flavor, excellent directions, momos to die for.

    20. Stepha on said:

      solid directions on a variety of dumplings but best of all, FOOD P*RN!

    21. rachel on said:

      dumpling recipe 1 DONE. and might i also add DELICIOUS. Very detailed descriptions of exactly how to make dumpling wrappers and their contents.

    22. Patricia on said:

      The best book on the subject I've seen. Techniques clearly demonstrated.

    23. Luna Raven on said:

      I already marked beef & sweet potato turnovers, spiced pineapple filled pastries and fresh mint chutney for sometime in the next week to make!

    24. Julie on said:

      We are by no means dumpling experts. The main reason we bought this book was to get ideas for different dough and fillings. This is a great book on both.

    25. Rob Durante on said:

      Great book. I love dumplings and there are many good ones to choose from. They are fun to cook and even better to eat.
