Although I grew up with traditional pirogies, I made the version of the dough in this book and it was incredible, soft and not tough. I am slowly working my way through this book, to the delight of my friends. What's better for a movie night in with friends than some yummy dumplings!
I started with the mild lamb Cornish pasties for my niece's rooftop wedding party. The recipe worked just as described. A British meal-in-hand, the pasties went well with beer and wine and made a big hit with everybody. I then made the shrimp Chinese dumplings to learn about steaming in bamboo. Fascinating to find myself making a big rope of dough. A big hit at home.
The book is full of tips, and a good read. Did you know how useful parchment paper is? How to pinch together an Asian dumpling wrap? How to line your bamboo steamer? (with Chinese cabbage). As a cookbook, it is for the adventurous. As a photo work, it gives you the inside story about an important element of food culture and would do just fine on the coffee table.
