'Nothing could be more delicious than dumplings'

Dumplings, with a history of nearly 2,000 years, are one of the most representative and widely popular traditional foods in China. An old saying in China states that "nothing could be more delicious than dumplings".

Dumplings are indispensable on Chinese New Year's Eve dinner tables, especially in the north. The food is usually made before noon on New Year's Eve and eaten at midnight. That's because this time is the beginning of the first lunar month, which exemplifies the "happy reunion" of the transition between the new year and the old year. People will also put coins or nuts inside to make "fortune dumplings", which symbolize good luck in the new year.
