The first cookbook from London cult restaurant BAO offers a taste of Taiwanese food culture with 100 signature recipes for steamed buns, noodles, xiao chi, fried chicken and more.
Since its humble beginnings as a London food stall, BAO has built a cult following of hungry fans with its Taiwan-inspired cuisine and sleek design sensibility. BAO's first book reveals the top-secret recipes behind 100 of his most beloved dishes - from the traditional steamed buns of his name to Taiwanese fried chicken, soul-warming beef noodles, snack-size xiao chi, and more.
Each BAO restaurant reflects a unique element of Taiwanese food culture. The book follows suit, with chapters on each restaurant's inspiration - Taipei night markets and grill houses, noodle shops and cafes - along with its creative interpretation.
BAO is part cookbook, part manifesto. The cookbook interweaves delicious recipes, lively stories, evocative photography and playful illustrations to inspire BAO superfans and curious home cooks alike.
