Our World Of Dumplings

Fall 2022

Dumplings can be sweet or savory, stuffed or rolled, fried, baked, boiled or steamed. All dumplings though, are a labor of love. Often requiring multi-step processes, dumplings are best prepared and shared in the company of friends and family. 

Our World Of Dumplings is a picture book about a group of children working together to prepare dumplings from each of their cultures for a rooftop potluck for all their neighbors.

BOOK'S ORIGIN: I love exploring, cooking and eating cuisines from around the world. In doing so, I realized how many cultures have their own variation on a dumpling.

As a child, I never appreciated my family’s cultural food traditions. I was inspired to write this story as a way to connect young readers to their food heritage, as well as to expose youth to similar dishes from around the world. While we may come from different places, and speak many languages, I believe the best way to get to know someone is over a plate of something delicious.
