Binging with Babish: Bao from Pixar's Bao

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.

  • I love your dedication to your craft. We all make small mistakes when trying something new, and that's how we learn the right way to do it. A lot of people would probably cut out their less than perfect first attempts, to try and create the illusion that they knew all the little tips and tricks right from the get-go, but you leave them in. You let us experience those small disappointments with you, and that makes seeing you nailing it in your next attempts so much more satisfying.

  • instead of oiling the parchment paper (which might make the dough on the bottom taste weird), people usually just cut out a smaller parchment paper circle for each individual bao!
