Recently, while googling cooking kits, I came across the Cooking Gift Set Co. site and when I saw the soup dumpling kit – I thought it was brilliant. (There other sets are equally brilliant and rumor has it a French tart kit is in the works – be still my heart.)
This brilliant kit has everything needed to create soup dumplings at home. Included is a small bamboo steamer basket, a two-sided dumpling dough rolling pin, parchment rounds, agar-agar powder (will transform most any soup into a dumpling filling), a bamboo filling spatula, and an instructional booklet to get you started.
With a few additional tools (many that we already have in our kitchens and some fresh ingredients), you can be making delicious homemade dumplings easily! I consider myself a good cook with a well-stocked kitchen and I am thrilled with the contents of this kit and the easy to follow instructions! I love the smaller steamer basket and the roller is perfect for all kinds of smaller dough jobs. In a matter of minutes, you can be on your way to making perfect soup dumplings. I made soup dumplings from leftover wonton soup broth and they were incredible.
