Bao is a beautifully animated, thematically mature, subtle and nuanced portrait of the human condition - in other words, it's a Pixar production. To celebrate the Oscars this coming weekend, let's dive into the director's mom's own recipe, as we attempt to recreate a food so delicious, you'll want to raise it as your own until it tries to leave you and you eat it.

Which part of eating a magically-sentient food tastes best: its thoughts, feelings, hopes, fears, or ability to love?

I imagine it tastes weird or bad, as you might know adding a lot of good things into one ends up tasting awful, like a Shepards Pie and English Trifle.

Hopes and dreams taste pretty good along with depression and suicidal thoughts.

Love the Steve1989 reference. Maybe you should try to recreate a ration meal. Maybe something from a WW1 or WW2 cook book or recipe

Bro, love your show but wanted to let you know since I speak the native tongue, Bao means bun. When you call it Bao bun you basically calling it bun bun. Just a FYI. Example at a dim sum place you order chashu bao, in literal word translation it would be chashu bun.

If you use the rolling pin on the edges of the dough so it’s thinner on the outside and thick on the inside it’s easier to close and give that pleated look

I love how you incorporate how you messed up in your videos, very brave of you. If i make a bad batch of something that people know im serving I "accidentally" drop it on the floor and take no responsibility of how it turns out.

My local "Chinese" buffet (americanized Asian stuff) uses cabbage leaves as their parchment paper in their steamers. The natural oils help with sticking and give it a nice tangy smell.

Hey babish!! Just made this tonight and was super awesome to share the process with my mom. Question though: whats the deal with the windmill technique? My mother was a baker for years and has no clue what this does. Couldn't you just divide into smaller, more rollable sections?

No oiling parchment paper.. makes them too greasy, if you use the cabbage leaves as the bed instead, I feel like that works best.

Babish I love you, but Baozi is not what they're sometimes called. Baozi is the proper name for them. No one in china just calls them Bao. To further this Chinese lesson, Bao in Mandarin is actually a verb, meaning to wrap up or surround. Not a noun.

If you have made the dough correctly, you should not need to oil the parchment paper. I've made baozi lots of times and I have never had to oil the paper. I have also never seen anyone oil the paper.

Another way to prevent the bao from sticking to the bamboo steamer is you add cabbage to the bottom instead of oiling the paper. My dad uses this technique all the time and you can use the cabbage for other recipes
