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. "Flushing jiaozi master Helen You's guide to what many consider the best shuijiao (or boiled Chinese dumplings) in town." --New York magazine
