Whether you’re in China, Italy, Russia or Mississippi, dumplings, no matter what they’re called locally, are often what’s for dinner.
National Public Radio honored the small, doughy, culturally shared food with a week of its own. NPR offered dumpling stories, information and how-tos including pierogi, tortelloni and shumai. (NOTED: they all end with an “i.”)
If you’ve noticed our header photo, you’ve probably guessed that TJ’s Chinese Gyoza Potstickers are one of our all-time faves and a grocery-list regular. Likewise, TJ’s shumai. So, we were extremely thrilled about the coverage and the week-long commemoration.
If you missed the tweets, the instagram pics and vids or the broadcasts, here are a few links to help you catch up and/or relive the moment:
