Come see for yourself why steamed buns (Bao) are such a popular staple in Chinese cuisine. We will use traditional steamers to make plain, savory, and sweet Bao in a variety of shapes and sizes. We’ll make the yeasted dough from scratch and turn them into delicious sweet and savory steamed buns including tofu and glass noodles bao, hanamaki spring onion and Sichuan pepper bao, and red bean paste bao. You’ll learn different folding techniques and how to steam them.
