Definitive and Doable: Andrew Wong's Shanghai Dumplings
Definitive and Doable is a Fine Dining Lovers series sharing classic dishes and recipes from top chefs and iconic restaurants that can be easily re-created at home. Here we learn how to make chef Andrew Wong's Shanghai dumplings, a traditional Chinese dumpling known as xiaolongbao or tang bao. They consist of a paper-thin dumpling layer, usually stuffed with a pork filling and served in a rich broth. These dumplings are served at Wong's eponymous two-Michelin-star London restaurant.
These dumplings require a little work and organisation but are not outside the realms of possibility for the experienced home cook. The definitive Shanghai dumplings and very doable.
