Ever tried a Turkish borek? Swedish kroppkakor? How about Cajun meat pie? Acclaimed photographer Brian Yarvin has traveled to neighborhood kiosks, festivals, and restaurants in ethnic neighborhoods throughout the northeastern U.S. to bring more than 100 traditional dumpling and filled-pie recipes from places as near as Flushing, Queens to as far away as Uzbekistan and beyond.

Starting with the basics of dough making, steaming, and frying, Yarvin provides mouth-watering color photographs and step-by-step instructions so that anyone can recreate their grandmother's pierogi or street-food treat at home, using ingredients from the local supermarket. Also included are tips for where to buy hard-to-find ingredients, and—if you just can't stand the wait of making your own—ethnic neighborhoods where you can find dumplings ready-to-eat.

This is a charming and metatextual book (since in it Yarvin tells the story of how he wrote and researched it) all about a particular yet universal subset of cooking, the miniature and mighty dumpling. Read full review

User Review  - Mrs. - Goodreads

I re-read this book, and am I glad that I did! Not only is it a treasure trove of dumpling recipes from around the world, it's a fun read, as well. One of the best things about the book is that the author provides many recipes for making your own wrappers. Read full review
