Brand New: FLY BY JINGMay 11, 2022
John here! Back in our rambling days in New York City, Kate and I lived around the corner from Vanessa’s Dumpling House in Chinatown. And I mean we LIVED on those dumplings, at least once, often twice a week. Fast, cheap, authentic, and delicious — they checked all the boxes.
Now, thanks to one of our favorite brands, Fly By Jing, we can all live on dumplings any night of the week. You may know Fly By Jing from their irresistible Sichuan Chili Crisp that we carry in the market. Their pork dumplings, just released to us this month, are the perfect vehicle for chili crisp or any of your favorite Asian sauces.
Available in three varieties — Pork, Shrimp & Mushroom; Pork, Shrimp & Scallop; and Pork Soup Dumplings — these plump morsels are bursting with flavor, like they just came off the dim sum cart. All you need is a pot of water and a steamer basket, and 10 minutes later you have perfect dumplings for 3-4 people! (And if you want to go vegetarian or gluten-free, try the seared Vegetable Potstickers from Feel Good Foods. Make sure to pair with Native Son Farms bok choy!)
Fly By Jing has a great story too. Founded by Sichuan native Jing Gao, the company seeks to promote and build on the bold flavors from her hometown of Chengdu. While working in Europe, she missed that food so much she quit her corporate day job and moved back home to open a restaurant. Her recipes became so wildly popular, she launched the Fly By Jing line of sauces, spices, and dumplings. You can read more about Jing in this Forbes profile.
There are a lot of things we don’t miss about our former city life, but we often long for those dumplings. Now we don’t have to. And neither do you!
