Why not enjoy a simple escape to dumpling heaven?

This delicious food has a storied history that dates back more than 1800 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty in China. Most historical accounts credit a man named Zhang Zhongjing with the delicious dumpling recipe that was created to help villagers stay healthy and warm during the cold winter months. The dumplings  look like frostbit ears filled with warm meats and herbs to ward off sickness.
