Halloween Bao masterclass

Our super popular (and delicious) bao buns get a Halloween makeover and reveal their dark sides! Master fluffy bao buns and dumplings with devilishly spicy fillings in this special 3-hour cooking class. The perfect way to celebrate Halloween with a delicious feast, ready for your own celebrations. 


What to expect

Our Masterclasses are the perfect opportunity for you to master one particular dish or skill, all within a relaxed 3-hour class. 

This Halloween you'll learn all the same skills as in our traditional Bao masterclass - mixing and shaping your dough, making delicious chicken, prawn and veg fillings, practising your chopping with a quick pickle and how to steam your buns. 

To bring the Halloween magic, we've added charcoal powder to the dough - these midnight-black buns are sure to make an impression! (Although if you'd like to make the traditional plain buns, you absolutely can!)

We’ll make sure you’ve got all the kit and ingredients you need, and we’ll even take care of the washing up. Afterwards you’ll take home your recipe packs, plus leftovers… if there are any!
