One Year ‘Dumpling-versary’

…plus Frozen Banana Sundae & Soy Salted Caramel Sauce for Food Junkies!

Hi everyone!

First things first, we’d like to say a HUGE thanks all you beautiful people out there who have supported The Dumpling Sisters over the past year: we are now officially one year old! A lot of crazy stuff has happened in that time, from the totally mad experience of Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Food Tube Star to starting the thrilling adventure of writing our first-ever cookbook.

It feels like a long time ago when we purchased a domain name, set up our trusty point-and-shoot camera atop an £8 tripod in Amy’s kitchen, and giggled our way through our (super awkward) first video. Back then there was no way we could have imagined that one day soon we would have developed 100 recipes at speed, put on quite a few extra pounds as a result(!) and be mere weeks away from our first session of food photography with the incredibly talented Paul Winch-Furness.

We are so grateful for these opportunities to keep sharing what we know and love about Chinese food with people all over the world, so once again: thank you all a million times over for watching, commenting, subscribing and, of course, cooking!

And even though it is still quite cringe to see ourselves on camera, it was very exciting to participate in Food Junkies. For our third recipe on the show we whipped an old favourite: frozen banana sundae with a super lush soy salted caramel sauce. Given that the ‘ice cream’ is made solely from bananas(!), we upped the indulgence factor by layering our sundaes with a bevvy of interesting ingredients, including exotic fruits and some of our favourite Korean snacks (anyone for Choco-Pie and Pocky!?). Do check out the recipe here and watch the full episode here!

Big virtual group hugs and hi-fives all around!

A&J xx
