Since I've began telling stories about my family's dumpling-making passion in my comics' work, I've often been asked to provide a recipe. It seemed like a daunting task at first since there were a lot of stages to making dumplings, my family never really wrote down any "recipes" in the traditional sense, and I also felt conflicted over having to "get it right." But in the end I decided to dive in and just do it! It feels like a great responsibility to document my family's cooking, but it also feels like a great honor. Through adapting these recipes and drawing my experiences, I've also started learning a lot about myself and how to transform that which is passed down into something uniquely my own. I hope today's recipe shares a bit of that fulfillment, and I look forward to drawing more recipes down the line.
