Excellent, well written.

Fabulous, buy this book!
This book is well written, well researched, well edited and proofread. There are clearly written and explained recipes of all countries and types from chicken and dumplings to pierogi to tamales to bread pudding. There is a chapter just for broths.
They explain the why they chose the recipes they did, the ingredients and equipment, different folding techniques with illustrations, tips on preparation through storage.
The recipes are arranged by month

Suka banget sama buku ini. Resepnya banyak dan macam-macam. Petunjuknya lumayan jelas. Ada pengelompokan berdasarkan tipe dumpling, ada semacam indeks jadi bisa mencari dumpling berdasarkan bahan. Belum semua resep gue perhatikan. Buku ini termasuk bacaan yang perlu konsentrasi lebih membacanya. Copy yang gue punya nggak ada foto kecuali foto di cover buku. Jadi kalo nggak membaca resep dari awal sampai akhir masih agak kabur bentuk akhir makanannya itu kaya bagaimana.
Omong-omong, nggak ada rese

Worth getting just for all the descriptions of different ways to fold in the beginning. Different definition of dumpling - barely any ravioli recipes, but lots of tamales. The mushroom buns (xiang gu baozi) were delicious, but made them the second night with gyoza wrappers instead and liked that better than the mantou dough. (Which is saying something, because I am a sucker for that dough!) Given that one of the authors is a vegetarian chef (if I am remembering the bio correctly), there are rela ...more

I ended up REALLY liking this and will definitely look to get a copy of my own. A ridiculous number of recipes are included, and I think I wanted to try almost every single one. Loved how this was organized, lots of detailed instructions and information about less common ingredients were provided.

My one criticism of the book is that there just are not enough photographs. There are really good diagrams provided, which is great for all the techniques that are covered, but a volume that details su

This book takes a very strict view of what a dumpling is--something that is steamed--so if it isn't stuffed but it is steamed (they have many breads and muffins that fit this bill), it is a dumpling, but an empanada--no way. There is an exhaustive array of things that do fit the bill, and lovely illustrations--on the cover is a picture of Hallacas, which is what attracted me to the book.

Very comprehensive in technique and global coverage.
This would be the book to use although it looks like more work than I'll likely do.

Lots of great recipes from around the world. Every culture has its own dumpling: the pierogi, ravioli, tamale. Excited to try lots of new recipes from this book!

Lots of recipes from around the world, but be forewarned, only 8 of the 138 recipes have pictures.
