As part of the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival
yesterday at the Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, men and women shoved as many dumplings in their mouths as they could for two minutes on stage. Both champs of the 5th Annual Chef One Dumpling Eating Contest
won last year: for the male division, Joe Menchetti
with 66 dumplings (breaking his record of 60) and Floria Lee
with 38 dumplings (who couldn't top her last year's record of 43).
