Product Details

In this online class, you’ll learn how to make Chinese bao buns at home. We’ll teach you how to make, shape and steam closed (dumpling-style) baos and open (sandwich-style) baos. Once you get the technique down pat, we’ll teach you the proper methods and proportions for filling, so you can riff on bao endlessly. Together we’ll make a vegetarian- and vegan-friendly hoisin mushroom filling, and once class is over, you’ll have the confidence to make any kind of bao you desire. Other techniques you'll learn include how to work with enriched dough, how to intensify flavour by reducing moisture, how to steam food properly, and much more.
