I am so totally amazed by Youtube lately. I can't believe the kinds of things you can find on it.
By chance I stumbled upon this clip on how to fold chinese dumplings (jiao zhi) . I thought it was so cool that someone out there has posted how to fold these things. Sometimes cookbooks just don't explain the technique as well. There were many other clips on how to make various chinese foods including those triangular chinese rice dumplings wrapped in banana leaves. Due to translation problems, a lot of different types of chinese dim sum delicacies tend to go under the broad term 'dumpling'.
You can even learn to make bread, pudding or muffin from youtube ... All you have to do is go to http://www.youtube.com/ and put "how to make muffin" in the query box.
