5.0 out of 5 stars Asian Dumplings, September 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Asian Dumplings: Mastering Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More (Hardcover)
I have no idea what made me buy this book as I had taken out several books on dumplings from the library last year and they were completely inadequate, confusing, uninspiring and poorly conceived. I couldn't even look inside this one to see what was in there, right? But, overcome with a desire for dumplings, I splurged.

The dumplings I have made from Andrea Nguyen's book have been frighteningly delicious. The information is clearly presented with good line drawings to show you how and lovely photos to show what you're supposed to end up with. The ingredient lists are all minimal and easily obtained. You will make no large investments in items you will use once. (Don't you hate that about some cookbooks?) There are so many to chose from, the only problem will be making up your mind which one tonight. The door to delectable dumplings is now open.

This is a wonderful book. Thank you, Ms Nguyen.
