Handmade from scratch, with love, this free range pork and chive dumpling recipe has been passed down through the family and my kids ask me for them all the time, so much so that they are a staple in their school lunch boxes, yum!
*** You can cook your Dumpling straight from the freezer by boiling or pan frying.
1. By boiling: in a pot of boiling water add the frozen dumplings, high heat, when the Dumpling is boiling add one cup of cold water (prevents Dumpling from breaking) and it's ready when the Dumpling's boil again.

About your cook, Iris (St Ives):
Hi, I'm Iris. I'm originally from Cambodia. My first memory of connecting with food was when I was little and my mum was always busy in her shop, so she left the house work and cooking to me. As the eldest child in the family, I had to learn to cook and did the shopping as guided by mum. I remember I learnt to cook my first curry chicken when I was just 12 years old. At first, I wasn't sure that I loved cooking because it was like a duty to me. Cooking really inspired me when I had my own kids. I'm a mum of three and my husband and kids love my food, this has inspired me the most and allows me to learn more about different foods and always cook with love.
I learnt to make the real Chinese dumpling pastry from my mother in law and this is now the all time food for my family because they absolutely love it and the best things is we can pre-make them and keep them in the freezer. I hope I can make my family style dumplings for you just as I make for my family. Love you all.
