Dill Dumplings (Chinese) - Authentic? Regional?

Mark P | May 11, 200802:51 PM     25

I happened to have lunch in a Chinese restaurant that offers dumplings with pork and dill (or pork and shrimp and dill). Having never tried them previously, I did, and learned that I don't like dill in my dumplings.

Anyway, I didn't hear any English spoken in the restaurant either by customers or staff so I'm pretty sure it's authentic to some region of China. But which?

Can anyone enlighten me on the history of dill dumplings? Since I don't normally see dill in Chinese food, what blending of cultures/peoples brought them together? And what other foods are special to the part of China that has dumplings with dill in them? (i.e., what else should I try at this restaurant?)

Please enlighten me.

thanks,
mark
