I love this book so much! Received it last Thursday and tried Shrimp Shu Mai this morning! Tasty! You would not believe what you are able to make with the recipe provided from this book. Well, I made my Shu Mai pretty big and I think the recipe yields about 50 bigger size shu mai dumplings. My family just loved them so much!

HASH(0xa5223f9c) out of 5 stars Create your own perfect bites of food Aug. 29 2014
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
My wife and I got hooked on dumplings fifteen years ago while we were in China. Since then, when we eat at local Chinese restaurants, we almost always order dumplings as starters. We've made dumplings at home, but we never had much instruction in their preparation, so hopefully Lee Anne Wong's cookbook would show both of us how. And it did. It's a beautifully illustrated book filled with very tasty-looking recipes, but more importantly, the author gives very clear instructions on the various styles of dumplings, the folds that are involved, and the different cooking methods.

Some of the recipes call for two dozen or more ingredients. Most of these ingredients can be found in larger supermarkets or in Asian markets. My wife and I decided to try a copycat recipe from the Cheesecake Factory for pot stickers. We used store-bought wonton wrappers with the classic pleat technique shown in the book. The cooking method was pan-frying. We had always assumed that fried dumplings would be steamed first, then fried. It may be counterintuitive, but we did it the author's way, frying the pot stickers, then steaming them. How did they turn out? They were as good as any pot stickers I've ever tasted. See my accompanying video for how it went.

I highly recommend Dumplings All Day Wong to anyone who wants to make their own "perfect bites of food" at home. We're excited about making our own dumplings at home using the recipes and methods in the book, including making our own dumpling wrappers instead of using the store-bought ones.

HASH(0xa5234960) out of 5 stars Superb dumpling book with a couple of minor caveats Aug. 23 2014
By Kathleen San Martino - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
My first impression of this cookbook is WOW; definitely 5 stars all the way. I spent a couple of hours reading through the first few chapters that describe the tools, techniques, how to make the dough, folding methods of the dumpling dough, etc. In fact, I am very impressed about the pleating folding technique. I could not for the life of me understand it through just words, but like any great cookbook, there were accompanying pictures that made it so clear. Each dumpling recipe can be made by any cooking technique (boiling, deep-frying, pan frying, and steaming). However, there is a recommended technique for each recipe to get the best outcome.

I made the Lemongrass Chicken Dumpling Soup and the results were exquisite. It took me about 4 hours to do the recipe and a total of 7 hours if you count the time traveling to an Asian store for the ingredients. Although, I have over 300 cookbooks, I'm a very methodical cook. So I always read the recipe first and then lay out the ingredients before I assemble the meal for cooking. Also, I clean up as I go and I am not a quick chopper with the knife so it takes me a long time to get the desired result. I was going to make the dough but even though it is easy to make it, it would take a lot of time to roll out. Instead I purchased the round dumpling wrapper for this recipe.

There is an Asian Pantry section at the end that talks about dry goods, flours, oils, aromatics, etc. However, what I did find lacking was a discussion on how to work with some Asian ingredients. For instance, in the recipe I tried, since I know nothing about Asian food and have only cooked two Asian recipes in my life, I had no idea how to chop lemongrass. I didn't even know what it looked like until this recipe. I had to search on the Internet for the chopping method. I did not realize that only the inner core can be used and there's a technique for extracting that core. Also, in the same recipe, it called for filling the dumpling with a tablespoon of the stuffing but it turns out it's really a teaspoon's worth that is required. I wound up with about 6 dumplings that would not close properly because I was trying to get too much stuffing (1 tablespoon) inside. Once I realized only one teaspoon of the chicken ingredient should be used, I folded the rest of the dumplings without incident.

Many of the ingredients are found in Asian stores so since I do not live in a large city, I had to search around for such a store. Even if the ingredient can be found in another store, I still recommend buying the Asian products (such as lemongrass, fish oil, etc.) at an Asian store because it most likely will be cheaper. For instance, I purchased 2 stalks of lemongrass for .55 cents at the Asian store and when I found out I needed more (because only the inner core is used), my boyfriend found a high-end store (Fairway Markets) that had lemongrass. However, it was $7.45 for 5 stalks which is almost $4.50 more than what I would have paid if I purchased all 7 stalks at the Asian market.

In summary, this cookbook is terrific for those who are interested in making Asian dumplings. It almost has every instruction needed to get started. As long as one is willing to put in the time, I trust the results will be close to dumpling nirvana. In addition to having to find the ingredients at an Asian store, the recipe maker also has to know how to cut, chop, and use that ingredient as not every detail is described in the book even though many details are. The pictures are also sensational and accompany almost every recipe. My boyfriend loved the results and said the Chicken Dumpling Soup was absolutely delicious and looked exactly as pictured in the book. After cooking from this cookbook, I have a higher appreciation of the skill and effort that goes into making dumplings. I highly recommend "Dumplings All Day Wong."

HASH(0xa5234438) out of 5 stars "What a Dump" ling -- Betty Davis Aug. 22 2014
By Aceto - Published on
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a well built book that takes a beating in the kitchen. Nice to see build care in the heavy cover (not hard cover) with heavy stitched binding. It lies open flat on the counter, politely.

Gotta have a good basic dough, because we rather not rely on store bought frozen squares, however serviceable (and Chef does treat them as well). Chef Wong whips up a wheat starch dough. Hers is superb with no glutens except those you may add with some dusting of regular flour. But the result is a silky and tasty wrapper for bamboo steamer of fry pan. Wong adds fun by showing you how to add color to your dumplings-green, red, VIOLET!

But there is much more. The doughs are so important because that is where we are held back. Chef Wong moves right along with a rice flour and finally the sublime Bao, a yeast dough that completes your arsenal for all to come.

The many reviews cover the tasty fillings. But a couple bear more bear special mention. The Scotch Egg dumpling is well named, if ever you have had Scotch Eggs. A nice crust with some pork around a much creamier variety of the hard-boiled egg without getting runny. The chicken-bacon-leek Bao for me, is the jewel in this crown.

HASH(0xa5234e4c) out of 5 stars If loving this book is Wong, I don't want to be right!!! ok bad pun Aug. 16 2014

I love Lee Anne Wong and have since her Top Chef days. Since moving from San Francisco have been CRAVING good dumplings that I just can not get here. The book is pretty good over all. I thought this book would be a bit more on the traditional side, but in reality it's bridging the gap between traditional and modern flavors.

Chapter 1 is Tools and Techniques. Very handy for those who aren't sure what you may need to make these. Chapter 2 is about wrappers and I give this 10 stars for the dumpling dough recipes!! Included in the "Dough -how-Choosing the right dumpling wrapper chapter are using premade wrappers but also recipes for wheat flour and variations, basic wheat starch, glutinous rice flour and Bao dough. YAY!! Fresh wrappers always taste 300000x better than premade and I'll be trying all these.

The majority of the chapters are broken up by types of folds. It starts with Classic Folds-potstickers, gyoza, mandu,then Chapter 4:Cup shaped- Shumai, chapter 5:Multi pleat-Har Gow, Chapter 6:round fold/puck shaped, Chapter 7:parcel fold-Bo Choy Gau, Chapter 8 is Wontons, Chapter 9 is Soup Dumplings-Xiaolongbao, Chapter 10: Bao, Chapter 11: Exotic Styles and Chapter 12: stocks, dipping sauces, and condiments, and lastly Chapter 13- The Asian Pantry.

There are a lot of pork recipes in here and a good deal of seafood ones. A few beef and chicken, some sweet ones and a few vegetarian ones. Lots of interesting ones like the Scallop Nori dumplings that are speckled black and white dough, Sardine Ginger Wonton soup and Chicken Caeser dumpling Salad. The Chocolate Bacon Wontons with Caramel Sabayon makes me wish I were eating meat again!!!

My personal preferences are vegetarian but there are enough of those in this book to warrant having it in my cookbook collection. It's interesting and I'll have fun adjusting some of the meat recipes to veggie.

If you're looking for a fresh take on traditional dumplings-grab Dumplings All day WONG and you won't be disappointed!
