It’s taken me years to perfect the fluffiest bao and I can tell you it’s the second proving that makes them so soft. If you become addicted, you may want to invest in a big steamer. Asian shops sell aluminium double-stacked steamers, perfect for buns, dumplings or whole fish. Pop in any filling, but Spicy chicken, Braised pork or Prawn katsu are memorable feasts.
