Who doesn’t like dumplings? They are made around the world. Some are boiled, others are baked, and some are fried. The fillings are varied. You can get vegetarian ones or ones filled with meat. Growing up in a Ukrainian family, we had perogies filled with cottage cheese and potatoes, or sauerkraut and potatoes quite often, and they are delicious. I even wrote an article about pairing perogies with Viognier. Here is the article on my perogie and wine pairing!
Vancouver Foodster is featuring dumplings in his upcoming Dumpling Fest on Nov. 7. I will be there. I hope you will too. Here is his announcement.
Join us and tantalize your taste buds at several restaurants between Olympic Village, Chinatown and Commercial Drive areas of East Van serving up different kinds of dumplings, from Cantonese soup dumplings, to Russian Pelmeni to Indian Kofta to Korean Mandoo and more.
