Dumpling originates in China, which has more than 2600 years’ history. It is a kind of folk food, which is very popular among Chinese people. 

Dumpling is one of the most important foods in Chinese New Year. Since the shape of dumpling is similar to ancient Chinese gold, they symbolize wealth. Traditionally, members of a family will get together to make and eat dumplings on the New Year's Eve.
