February 2014 Cookbook of the Month — ASIAN DUMPLINGS: Mastering Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More

BigSal | Jan 21, 201405:02 PM

It started as a close race, but ASIAN DUMPLINGS: Mastering Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More by Andrea Nguyen pulled away and was selected as February’s Cookbook of the Month.

On February 1st, I'll post individual threads for reporting your experiences from this book. I will also post a companion thread for those who wish to cook from Nguyen’s Asian Tofu to help prevent dumpling fatigue. In the meantime, you can use this announcement thread for general discussion about the book.

The voting thread that got us here:

A general explanation of Cookbook of the Month, and a list of past books:
