The UK’s First Dumpling International Festival Comes to Birmingham

Big, fat, steamed or fried Taste and Liquor bring together the best dumplings the UK can find. Welcome to the UK’s first International Dumpling Festival 2018.

The Award Winning Taste and Liquor presents the UK’s first International Dumpling Festival, a street food festival serving dumplings in multiple ethnic variations. This special food project will be opened
all day-to-night from 12pm October 13th to 8pm at Boxxed in Digbeth.

Join them on a journey from Korea to India, Jamaica, Russia, and America and beyond, as they explore the great wide-world of dumplings. The festival has collaborated with six Midlands street-food vendors to curate a mouth-watering menu of dumplings and other fare, including;

POLAND & UKRAINE: Indulge in Fully Belly’s Traditional Pierogi Dumplings from Eastern Europe, containing strong flavours like sauerkraut, mashed potato, cabbage and ground beef.

JAMAICA: Celebrity Chef’s (Skepta/Disclosure) Momma Bears Wings and Tings will be bring in the summer heat with their Jamaican Fried Vanilla Dumplings served with BBQ Jerk Wings, Vegetarian
Curry and Traditional Soul Food.

INDIA: Veeru Da Dhaba will be flying the Indian flag as they present their deep fried Kofta Dumplings (Vegetarian/ Meat/Gluten Free) and Whisky Gol Gappas.

KOREA: Get transported away to the Far East with flavours from Korea. Having trained as a chef in China, Seoul Food by Halton Turner will tantalise your four senses with deep filled dough dumplings - be it steamed, boiled, pan-fried, or deep-fried - Turner will present some of the best Pan-Asian Dumplings to the festival.

Now, we’ve put all these delicious dumplings in one place. You’ll also find un-traditional flavors from:

EXPERIMENTAL VEGAN DUMPLINGS: Get you chopsticks (or wooden forks) round these mouth-dripping dumplings from Ba Ha Vegan, who will be serving Vegan Cheese and Ham Toastie, Bourbon BBQ Jack and Cluckin' Curry Dumplings.

AMERICAN: Or indulge in some Sweet Fried Dumplings from The Donut Bar. It’s a fact of life that dumplings are one of the world’s best-loved comfort foods. These mouth-watering morsels of cooked dough, deep fried into a shell or steamed in a stew appear in the culinary culture of almost every country — and as such, one person’s idea of what constitutes a dumpling can be very different from the next person’s and Taste and Liquor’s first International Dumpling Festival address this vital fact!

With each cook only using the freshest ingredients and will be making every product by hand to ensure you’ll love their dumplings as much as we do. Alongside the dumpa-licious plates, there will also be on-site bars and DJs ready to play all your favourite tunes. One for all the family to enjoy!

It may be a pocket filled with dough but everyone has a favourite. Be it sweet, savoury, stewed or boiled Taste and Liquor’s & The UK's first International Dumpling Festival celebrates these fat balls
of mouth-watering deliciousness at Boxxed, Digbeth.
