Dumpling Food Quotes

“Coleridge holds that a man cannot have a pure mind who refuse apple-dumplings. I am not certain but that he is right.”

Charles Lamb (1775-1834)


“....this country was largely settled on dumplings - Puritan housewives of New England bringing the dumpling tradition across the Atlantic, and nearly a century later, the pioneers taking it with them in their covered wagons.  There is even a legend that once when an extra big train of wagons was crossing the plains back in the thirties, it was found expedient to separate it into two sections, which, for lack of any better basis of division, was done by counting off those who liked boiled dumplings into one group, and those who preferred a crusty ash cake into the other.”

Sheila Hibben (1888-1964)


“The fricassee with dumplings is made by a Mrs. Miller whose husband has left her four times on account of her disposition and returned four times on account of her cooking and is still there.”

Lily Rowan to Archie Goodwin in 'Some Buried Caesar' a Nero Wolfe Mystery by Rex Stout


“Crackers, toasted or hard bread may be added a short time before the soup is wanted; but do not put in those libels on civilized cookery, called DUMPLINGS!  One might about as well eat, with the hope of digesting, a brick from the ruins of Babylon, as one of  the hard, heavy masses of boiled dough which usually pass under this name.”

Sarah Josepha Hale, 'The Good Housekeeper' (1839)
