The style of food we love is a reflection of our kaleidoscopic history.

From a modern Chinese upbringing under the long white clouds of New Zealand to embracing a British adoration of curries and bakewell tarts, our food journey is as patterned and interconnected as the rivulets of fat in a juicy piece of marbled rib eye steak.

Our aim is to champion the great Chinese food that we know and love – to demystify what it is, to explain why it’s at the very centre of our lives, and to encourage you to create your own versions of it too.

We chose the name The Dumpling Sisters because dumplings epitomise great food: delicious inside and out, a variety to suit everyone and perfect for sharing.  

So tuck in next to us as we step behind the looking glass and show you how we view Chinese food – not just as brilliant grub, but as cherished memories and new adventures too.

We made the video below a few years ago, but we still like the way it tells our story. Watch it to learn more about how we became the Dumpling Sisters
