Making Chinese Dumplings (Jiaozi)

Chinese dumplings (Jiaozi) are a traditional food, an absolute must for holidays in Northern China. Since the shape of the dumplings is similar to ancient Chinese gold or silver ingots, they symbolize wealth. In North China, almost everyone is skilled in the art of making dumplings. Traditionally, the members of a family get together to make dumplings on New Year 's Eve. If you visit Beijing's hutongs with our itinerary, you may be invited by a local family to join in their dumpling making. It is a ritual that requires team work and there is a job for everyone. One person is responsible for making the dough and skins, another for the filling, and the rest will help wrap. You will be amazed how fast they can wrap them and how attractive they turn out. The event is a fun party filled with laughter and happy conversation. The best part of all is the satisfaction of sitting around a table with family and friends and enjoying the jiaozi you helped make.
