It was Dumpling Festival yesterday. It's a day where Chinese celebrate a ancient China hero. We always make dumplings during this day, I guess that's why in English it's called Dumpling Festival. My mum always make the dumplings by her own, but I haven't learn how to make dumplings from her yet.:p Have you heard of this festival? have you tried this kind of dumpling before? (I understand there are many kinds of dumplings.)

I am a chinese but I have never heard the Dumpling Festival. Perhaps it is a local festival in come cities or countryside. In China during the Spring Festival People will have dumplings. All the people sit together to make dumplings and then enjoy the delicious dumplings together. It is very great, and dumpling is my favourite food. I like it very much.

Hi maddysmommy, Sorry for my late reply. I don't know how to describe the taste, it's made of glutinous rice and pork, and it's a bit salty. Can't imagine the taste, right? :p I guess this food is not very famous in other countries.

dumpling festival? i have not heard that. in my home, we will make dumplings in every traditional festival such as spring festival, lantern festival and mid-autumn festival. there are some rules, between the spring festival and the lantern festival, of when leek dumpling should be eated and when dumplings containing meat. usually, we will eat dumplings when we feel happy or want to improve the diet. and i like eat it.

I never heard before that there is dumpling festival. But I do like dumpling so much. Pity that I couldn't find them easily here in Europe. Need to go to special store or Chinese restaurant.
