At once a celebration of culinary diversity and a message of love via dumplings, food writer Liz Crain’s DUMPLINGS EQUAL LOVE (Sasquatch) is a bright and innovative cookbook stuffed with traditional and not-so-traditional dumpling recipes — plus recipes for dough and sauces. Internationally, dumplings have always played the dual role of an inexpensive comfort food passed down through generations, and a ceremonial, celebratory festival treat. Whichever way you enjoy them, you can now make your own dumpling memories with DUMPLINGS EQUAL LOVE. Rooted in deep cultural respect, steeped in curiosity, and fed by the traditions of families who hold these recipes dear, Crain adapts dumpling recipes from all over the world. Crain will be joined in conversation by Marisa McClellan, author of Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round.
