Claire Makes Soup Dumplings | Bon Appetit

  • Published: 20 April 2015
  • Associate Food Editor Claire Saffitz shows us how to make soup dumplings.

    Soup dumplings fall in the category of "delicious things we love to order when we're out, but would never even dream of making at home." Until now, that is. This dim sum staple may seem complicated, but it's really just made from three separate components: the dough, the filling, and the soup. Where things get tricky is in the process of sealing the dumpling with a series of intricate folds. Don't worry: We've got step-by-step video instructions and a tutorial on how to do it.

                                          Claire with color hair is interesting im so use to her cute grey panel/ natural look anyway. Glad the lighting has improved. Soup dumplings are great.

                                            Soup dumplings (xiao long bao) are actually not traditionally a dim sum because dim sums are of Cantonese or southern Chinese origin, while soup dumplings are of Shanghainese origin.
