About Monica

Monica Liau has been making dumplings for longer than she can remember. The homey packages were trotted out for birthdays, family gatherings, holidays, and other special occasions, and they was always enough to fill a crowd's belly, plus an extra freezer for auxiliary meals. Later, Monica spent 10 years in China, where she discovered other interesting fillings (sorry Grandma!) and dumpling masters across the provinces. On Chinese New Year, dumplings are must, and she's excited to share the art with a new audience.
