The Latest Kitchen Adventure

I was reading NPR’s list of the best cookbooks of 2009, and happened upon this book by Andrea Nguyen, called Asian Dumplings. This past weekend after a fun trip to Surfas, a restaurant supply store, I picked up some bamboo steamers, and on Sunday I was on my way to attempting to make stuffed buns, aka baos.

Overall I was pretty pleased with my results. With the wait time of the dough sitting, and then sitting again after the buns are formed its a bit time consuming, but a good activity for a Sunday.

This book includes different styles of every kind of Asian dumpling you can think of. I think this is going to be lot of fun to work through, and master. :)

There is still knitting happening around here for all of January Ive been slowly moving through a simple cardigan. Pictures to come as son as it's finished!
