Review By: Gloria Cohen

I am really happy to be introducing you to Lee Anne’s new book, she is a delight and works with many of my favorite chef’s and friends in Honolulu. How about planning a dumpling party?

By Lee Anne Wong

A renowned Asian chef, a finalist on season one of Bravo’s Top Chef, and a judge on The Food Network’s Chopped, provides the basics of creating delicious Asian dumplings any time for any occasion, perfect as a snack, appetizer, or entrée.

Lee Anne’s recipes are easy to follow and are accompanied by beautiful color photos. “Biting into a hot, fresh, juicy dumpling can be a transcendent moment,” Lee Anne says. “This dumpling euphoria is commonly achieved by dining out or ordering in, which is why making them at home for yourself is that much more special.”

Included are chapters that cover choosing the right dough and folding techniques, as well as focusing on delicacies such as Shumai, Har Gow, Wontons, Soups and Baos. Some of the savory original recipes include:
Sweet Corn Tamale Dumplings with Sesame-Avocado Sauce
Chicken Pad Thai Wontons with Spicy Peanut Sauce
Edamame and Sweet Pea Gyoza with Wasabi Cream
Pork and Chive Dumplings with Soy Ginger Dipping Sauce
