While mainly a dumplings cookbook (as indicated by the book title), there are also numerous classic Chinese noodle/rice/bun recipes in Pang's book, e.g. biang biang noodles with cumin lamb and bbq pork and crispy wonton noodles (not the brothy kind, the "dry" noodle with sauce kind). Pang's compilation of recipes are a fine mix of traditional and original ones he devised (such as miso roasted eggplant potstickers - yum!) and while most are indeed very accessible for the average home cook, there are also a number that you may want to save for a weekend project (not difficult, as the instructions are very clear, but requires time). This is a great book for those who want to learn the basics of dumpling making (included are chapters on folding and fundamental sauces) as well as those who want to expand their repertoire. Luscious photography abounds. Excellent!
This book from dumpling wunderkind Brendan Pang is awesome. It has so many different dumpling recipes but also includes instructions on how to make various sauces and also how to make the different kinds of wrappers and indeed how to fold them. There is also a great selection of side dishes to make along with your dumplings. The book is very well presented throughout and has great step by step pictorial folding instructions for the various styles of dumplings. Every dumpling recipe refers to the wrapper type to make and what page to find it on as well as what sauces to make and also where to find those. Pretty much every Chinese style dumpling I've ever eaten is in the book and then some. If you love your dumplings, you'll love this book!
