Binging with Babish: Bao from Pixar's Bao

  • Published on Feb 19, 2019
  • 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.
    Domee Shi's Mom's Recipe:
    Music: "XXV" by Broke for Free

    5:30 I legit paused the vid and rewound to hear it again. And then I saw another Steve1989 ref in the Adventure Time video.
    Babish must be a fan of Steve. It can't be a coincidence.

    you dont have to use pork. you can use basically anything. important is, that the filling should never be only made of one component
    btw: you really dont have to fry the meat. it tastes really good either way.(dont know how to write sartei? sartey? sate?you know what i mean)
