Bao Bun Workshop | Sat 9 May | 11.00 to 13.30

Bao Buns are one of Asia's most delicious street food snacks and in this workshop, we're going to teach you how to make them from scratch. The class will begin with the buns, the light steamed pillow cases that act as the envelope around the filling. You will be shown how to make the dough, prove, shape and then place in traditional bamboo steamers. The second part of the class will be the fillings. Keeping it traditional, we will offer a mix of pork and chicken meat fillings with accompanying mouthwatering sauces and added garnishes to enhance textures and flavours. This is a fun hands on class where everybody will get to make their own Bao Buns, so please come hungry. Price includes recipe packs and teas/coffees on arrival.
