Wonton literally means ‘swallowing clouds’ in Chinese. Back in the day, a Chinese doctor named Zhang Zhong Jing found a way to stuff medicinal ingredients in wontons and offered them to people suffering from frost bite. Because of this, wontons were mentioned as being medicinal in ancient Chinese cookbooks. But nowadays, we just eat them because they taste good, and cause, what’s better than swallowing clouds?
