Nearly every culture has a variation on the dumpling: histories, treatises, family legends, and recipes about the world's favourite lump of carbs

ââââIf the world's cuisines share one common food, it might be the dumpling, a dish that can be found on every continent and in every culinary tradition, from Asia to Central Europe to Latin America. Originally from China, they evolved into ravioli, samosas, momos, gyozas, tamales, pierogies, matzo balls, wontons, empanadas, potato chops, and many more.
