There is never a wrong time to steam up (or bake, or fry…) a batch of vegetarian dumplings – but Lunar New Year is a particularly auspicious occasion. We love these recipes not only for the delicious end product, but also for the craft of making them. It’s something that can take patience and practice if you’re new to it, but that’s all part of the fun. Making dumplings together can also be a wonderful opportunity to bring generations together for some quality time in the kitchen, sharing skills and making memories.
