Reading notes: NPR 's dumpling week
All week the NPR food blog, The Salt, has been sending out great dumpling stories, many of which include fabulous recipes that I don't have the time to try. Perhaps the most interesting post was one in which they attempted to document all the many, many, many kinds of dumplings, what they are calling their "Global Dumpling List." And yes, momos are on the list but more interesting is their list of " disputable dumplings" that includes everything from empanadas to samosas. Why disputable? Because NPR put together a panel of "Dumpling Experts" to help them decided what should actually be considered a dumpling!
