The History of Dumplings

Not long ago, we looked at the many kinds of dumplings made around the world. But where did they get their start? The oldest documentation on dumplings we know of is a 1,700-year-old recipe found in China. While the Chinese might not have invented dumplings, they certainly made them popular, and exported that enthusiasm to other cultures. In this TED-Ed lesson, University of Michigan professor Miranda Brown traces the spread of dumplings around the world and looks at how they were altered and adapted to work with local resources and cultures. That means people learned about them, and then made them with what they had and what they liked to eat.  And that’s why we have so many kinds of dumplings today.
