Cooking Class: Steamed Bao Buns

Learn the art of making soft, pillowy mini bao buns completely from scratch in this NYC culinary class!



2 hours Class size 1 to 14 (public classes), 16 to 33

label $65 - $84 ($65 for Public class, $84 for Private class)

In this NYC cooking class, you'll learn the art of making soft, pillowy mini bao buns completely from scratch! Easily steamed, they are even more fun to fill with your ingredients of choice.

You will follow along as your instructor shows you the process of making the dough and allowing it to prove while you make your filling of choice. You will choose between a vegan (featuring zucchinis, carrots, cabbage, and leeks) or seasoned ground beef filling. You'll also learn to make a Siopao dipping sauce from scratch.

No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting (or taste testing).

This class is the best of both worlds because you will get to practice working with dough as well as sharpening your cooking and knife skills. You'll be making bao buns at home in no time!

Our teacher was fantastic, and the venue seemed very well equipped for the class. The teacher was professional and seemed very experienced and made sure to provide guidance on the dos and don'ts for each step. Overall, I thought the class was great and the bao buns were delicious! 10/10

Anita Nari Apr 2023


The teacher was wonderful. He put all his enthusiasm and passion in explaining the recipe. The class was very well organized. It was a very pleasant discovery with a lot of fun! I recommend it also because the recipe is very smart and easy, something that you can replicate also in your home!

Lauren Zander Jan 2023


Nice evening out, but the end result was just ok. The bao was very heavy and not very authentic. The instructor was pleasant enough but we were disappointed that every table got the same amount of food to work with — whether you were just one person, or if you were a couple like us. Most of the couples could only have one person working at a time while the other person watched.
