Dumpling making dates back to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 AD – 220 AD) in China when the delicious ravioli-like pockets were filled with traditional herbal medicines. Over time, the practice of eating dumplings during the Chinese New Year feast evolved. Dumplings are considered a token of good fortune because they are shaped like traditional Chinese currency, called yuanbao (元宝).
