Congratulations to BlueCat731, our November winner! BlueCat will recieve a digital copy of The Crazy Dumplings Cookbook! Since December is a special month for most people, I have decided to give away a physical item this month – a little diorama of Beijing Monkeys eating dumplings for Chinese New Year!
