The Legend of Dumplings tells the origin and tale of Chinese dumplings with the story of the outstanding medical scientist Zhang Zhongjing of the Eastern Han Dynasty. On the way home, Dr. Zhang Zhongjing saw a girl crying because her ears were frozen. Dr. Zhang prescribed the mixture of medicine which could be eaten as food, and made flour parcels of mixture named “jiao er” (dumpling). Dr. Zhang instructed the villagers that eating “jiao er” in winter would cure the frozen ears. So every Chinese New Year from then on people made and ate dumplings to remind them of kind Dr. Zhang Zhongjing.
