Dumpling Tour of Squirrel Hill's Chinese restaurants on March 27, part of International Association of Culinary Professionals annual conference.


At Everyday Noodles, by Laura Petrilla for Pittsburgh Magazine.

Pittsburgh Magazine's Hal B. Klein will lead a Dumpling Tour of Squirrel Hill's Chinese restaurants on March 27 as part of the International Association of Culinary Professionals annual conference held in Pittsburgh from March 27 through 29.
Pittsburgh long has embraced one of the world’s most universally delightful foods — the dumpling. Here, our love of small, stuffed orbs of dough began with the pierogi. More recently, Pittsburgh’s new wave of immigrants from China has infused Squirrel Hill, one of the city’s most exciting dining neighborhoods, with suan cai jiaozi, xiaolongbao and san xian. Join Pittsburgh Magazine dining critic Hal B. Klein for a tour that’ll have you tasting (and, perhaps, pinching) Pittsburgh dumplings old and new. Transportation will be provided to and from Squirrel Hill, but there will be some walking, too. $125; 1 p.m. to 4 p.m
Ticket information and conference registration details are available at the IACP's website.
