The year of the rooster is almost upon us and it’s time to start planning your celebrations. We know no better way to ring in Lunar New Year than with copious amounts of dumplings. Here, nine dumplings that will bring you good fortune and happiness (at least as long as you’re eating them).

1. Boiled Chinese Dumplings

Food & Wine:

Andrew Zimmern pinned down the secret to these dumplings: "I have to say, there is something magical about the addition of the minced boiled cabbage, it's what makes them light and highly addictive.”

Food & Wine:

From star chef David Burtka come these tasty dumplings filled with pork, shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, scallions and ginger.

3. Cabbage, Watercress and Pine Nut Dumplings

We like these bad boys boiled instead of steamed or fried.

4. Pork-Kimchi Dumpling Pancakes

Food & Wine:

Chef Corey Lee's creative, reinvented pan-fried dumpling recipe turns the dumplings into one round, crisp pancake.

5. Shrimp-and-Pork Dumplings with Bamboo Shoots

Food & Wine:

The chefy way to make these delicate dumplings is with cornstarch, wheat starch, water and shortening, but you can also make them with wonton wrappers.

6. Pork-and-Crab Soup Dumplings

Food & Wine:

The secret to getting the soup inside these Chinese soup dumplings, or xiao long bao, is to set the rich stock with gelatin before folding it into the dumpling skin along with the ground meat filling.

Food & Wine:

Gyoza wrappers and a simple pork filling—these dumplings are fried and then steamed so they’re tender, juicy and crisp.
