Dumplings, like Magellan, have circumnavigated the world — and they no doubt date to before the mid-1500s’ Portuguese explorer took his spin across oceans funded by the Spanish king.
Ravioli and tortellini are too obvious, but just about every country on the planet has some sort of dumpling: Swedish palt, Ghanaian kenkey, Brazilian pamonha, Thai thung thong, Portuguese rissois, Japanese gyoza and Ukrainian verenyky.
There are really far too many to name here — except that I want to point out the Nepalese dumpling that you can find at MoMo House in Cambridge (and where the downtown Preston restaurant has it as “mo:mo”).
