September 26, 2018 National Dumpling Day

Post by John Rancke

National Dumpling Day is observed annually on September 26th. Dumplings are becoming more popular all the time. They can be served as an appetizer or a part of the main meal. One of the beautiful things about dumplings is that the flavor and shape possibilities are endless.

Dumplings consist of small pieces of dough generally, but not always, wrapped around a filling. The variety of dumplings is reflected in the many types of ingredients that can be used as well as the method of cooking itself. Ingredients include flour, potatoes or bread, and may include meat, fish, vegetables, or sweets. Popular methods of cooking include boiling, steaming, simmering and even frying. They are often eaten alone but are also popular in soups and stews.

Sounds like Chinese to me!!

In the South, we throw little (or big) pieces of pastry in a pot and add some chicken and cook it up and call it Chicken and Dumplings or Chicken and Pastry. Some call it Chicken Bog. But there are those that like to put rice and chicken and sausage and a little bits of onions in a pot and call it Chicken Bog. It’s all good. I love them both.


Couple of the Volunteer Fire Departments around Robeson County NC do an annual Chicken Bog Fundraiser every year. I remember for years Big Marsh Fire Department just outside St. Pauls, NC on US 301 would have their annual Chicken Bog day. Best I have ever had.

It’s also National Pancake Day across America. My sophomore year of college I lived in the Pi Kappa Phi house at Finley Golf Course. One day I signed up for breakfast and wrote out my name. Our long time cook read my name as Pancake (assuming that’s what I wanted for breakfast). So for years she would call me Pancakes. Just one of many nicknames I acquired over the years.
