Chef’s Tips

Bao dough maybe prepared the day before and proved in the refrigerator overnight. if your unsure about making bao dough or purchasing bao flour use the same recipe you would for pizza or bread.

Wasabi mayonnaise is easily prepared simply mix together quality mayonnaise with wasabi paste and little lime juice. Keep prepared mayo in a lidded container in the refrigerator until required.

Dashi seasoning is a combination of white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds and chopped roasted nori (seaweed) you will fnd it in the asian section of the supermarket or in the Asian supermarket.
