Language Hotpot is a new video channel releasing monthly videos about travelling words and foods. As their channel says, the world has always been connected, and through their videos they illustrate connections between history, travel, linguistics, and food.
In their latest episode, Language Hotpot dives into the history of a style of dumpling that is a common delicacy all across Asia and beyond, from Central Asia all the way to the Mediterranean and Central and Eastern Europe. By tracing the changing names of these dumplings, the channel takes you through their journey while teaching a practical recipe for the Polish version along the way. Watch and learn how a food once called “small boiled thing” made its way across regions to later be called “little ears.”
