A super dumpling 1.2 meters long and 0.86 meters wide was made by a restaurant in Baoding, north China's Hebei Province. The dumpling, which weighed 79 kilograms, was made with three bags of flour and 60 grams of dumpling filling.

Moreover, inside the super dumpling there are 2,011 small dumplings. Those small dumplings have different flavors and can feed 100 people at the same time.

The super dumpling was made under the supervision of the local notary office and will be registered in the Guinness World Records.

The Winter Solstice, which falls around Dec. 22 each year, is an important festival for Chinese people. The tradition of the Winter Solstice in China has been handed down from 2,500 years ago until now. On this day, people in North China traditionally eat dumplings.
