Chinese Steamed Buns (Baozi) Virtual Demo with Shih-Wen Wu

Join us for this two-hour, virtual demofeaturing Shih-Wen Wu, a former instructor for the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan and a well-loved guest instructor at BAKE!. Watch and learn as she shows us how to make Chinese Steamed Buns (known as Baozi, or simply Bao), a very popular food in Chinese cuisine. Along city streets, you can often find food vendors selling all kinds of Bao, which can come in a variety of shapes and sizes with various fillings. Savory buns come filled with meat, fish, or vegetables, some seasoned with BBQ or hot spices. Sweet buns are filled with red bean paste, lotus seed paste, custard, black sesame, chocolate, or come as just plain steamed dough (known as Mántóu, or simply as Mó). Buns are usually steamed, but can also come pan-fried. In this demo, Shih-Wen will show you how to make, shape, fill, proof and steam Bao. This will open the door to experience a new world of Chinese cooking!

This virtual demo will be recorded and sent out to you after class; feel free to pour a cup of tea and enjoy the show. There will also be a moderator fielding questions throughout the demonstration.

When you register for the virtual demo, you'll receive the Zoom invite and the recipes that Shih-Wen will be demonstrating. 

*Please note that this is not a virtual hands-on class but a demonstration held over Zoom—this means that you’ll be watching as the guest chef prepares dishes. Unlike our hands-on classes, this is not an interactive experience, and thus, we do not encourage attempting to bake or cook along with the program.
