If you’re unfamiliar with bao, think Taiwanese burgers, a name these Asian steamed buns sometimes go by. Then think again – because apart from being a filled-bun dish, that’s where the similarity ends.
In this three-hour session you will learn all you need to know about creating the most perfect, soft pillowy bao. Your chef Jethro will demonstrate how to make the dough before proving and shaping it. You will learn techniques to make a range of bao shapes, including Japanese hirata bao (the sandwich), filled bao and the traditional Chinese snowball and create a choice of fillings to suit all tastes.
Expect to be fully hooked on these fluffy, super-tasty on-trend treats by the end of this session!
What previous participants said: “Enjoyed the simple, step-by-step instructions. Will definitely make them at home and play with the fillings.” “Thank you so much for a lovely evening, I liked the friendly atmosphere and practical learning.”
Find out more about Jethro and the other cooks who teach in the Community Kitchen.
