Dumplings are the crowning glory of any party spread. Invite your guests to help make them or just serve up a platter and watch them disappear.

It’s traditional to ring in a new year with platters full of dumplings, bowls of rich broth, and crispy crab rangoon, but a dumpling party is a tasty treat at any time of the year. While in previous years we may have gone out to one of our favorite spots in the city and enjoyed dim sum amongst friends, we are taking a bit of a different approach this year. So crack open your dumpling maker and heat up the frying oil, because we are making the dumplings ourselves! (Well, we might order some to be delivered…)

When your hands start to cramp from crimping shumai, switch to prepping our recipe for simple spicy rice balls— and don’t forget to whip up a big batch of mu shu mushrooms to add some veg on your plates. 

We only recommend things we love. If you buy something through our site, we might earn a commission.
