This is a newsletter all about dumplings + the people that make them.
Hey there! I’m a journalist and editor based in Brooklyn with a lifelong obsession with dumplings. As a genre of food, dumplings are beloved all over the world for a reason: They’re comforting, they’re celebratory, and they’re extremely delicious.
They also require a ton of specialized skill, patience, and passion to make well—especially if you do so for a living.
Enter Above the Fold, a newsletter (and soon, print zine) spotlighting the people dedicated to making these culinary labors of love.

Anything that’s carefully folded/stuffed/enclosed is fair game. Pelmeni? Yep! Empanadas? You betcha!
