Making red bean dumplings

Making red bean dumplings

By the 1990s, Chinese festivities attracted wide interest and participation. The annual Chinese bazaar held by the Wellington Anglican Chinese community allows other New Zealanders a chance to sample such delicacies as red bean dumplings, which are being prepared here for the bazaar in 1995 by Ng Soon Yee (left) and Mel Jean Chin.
