Do You Bake - National Dumpling Day - September 26th
NATIONAL DUMPLING DAY
National Dumpling Day is observed annually on September 26th. Dumplings are becoming more popular all the time. They can be served as an appetizer or a part of the main meal. One of the beautiful things about dumplings is that the flavor and shape possibilities are endless.
Dumplings are a food that consists of small pieces of dough generally, but not always, wrapped around a filling. The variety of dumplings is reflected in the many types of ingredients that can be used as well as the method of cooking itself. Ingredients include flour, potatoes or bread and may include meat, fish, vegetables, or sweets. Popular methods of cooking include boiling, steaming, simmering and even frying. They are often eaten by themselves, but are also popular in soups and stews.
Enjoy some dumplings with your friends or family. Take photos and post them on social media using #NationalDumplingDay.
