"Steamed bun has a history of thousands of years. It can be traced back to the Jin Dynasty when some history book contained records on “Steamed cake”, which refers to the steamed bun of the modern times. Legend has it that Zhu Geliang in the Three Kingdoms Period replaced real human head with a human-head-shaped object made of flour and beef or mutton in the memorial ceremony of Lushui River. This offering was called “Steamed-bun head”. From then on, steamed buns were used as oblation by people in the Jin Dynasty. Such steamed buns were of large size and usually stuffed with meat. In the Tang and Song Dynasty, steamed buns were smaller as a kind of pastry, with or without stuffing. It is in the Qing Dynasty that the name of steamed buns was differentiated. In North China, steamed buns without stuffing were called “Steamed Buns” while stuffed ones were called “Steamed Stuffed Buns”. The situation in South China was just the opposite."
Well, hari ini gw bantuin nyokap bikin bakpao.. isi babi..
it's really good, you know :)
um, gw actually beneran bantuin nyokap lohh..
(in case ada orang yang ga percaya)
tugas gw adalah mixing all the stuffs..
terus stelah smua bahan tercampur rata, gw misah-misahin adonannya..
jadi mami tinggal masukin isinya..
here's the raw pork pao..
the first picture is the raw white pork pao.. jadi qta bikin dua macem isi..
yang pertama daging babi putih aja.. itu dikasi warna merah hehe..
the second one is this.. daging babi yang uda dimasak pake kecap..
so it's sweet pork pao (namainnya seenak hati hehe..) with no red mark on top of it
and this is the result..
well.. in case you notice..
yang bakpao isi daging babi putih itu kan warna merahnya aga berantakan..
hehe.. it's my fault.. jadi pas lagi mentah gw yang ngasi warna..
dengan jiwa seni yang bergelora.. sempet pingin gambar bintang2 gitu haha..
tapi jadinya.. ga cuma 1 titik yang gw bubuhin..
melainkan beberapa cocol pewarna..
alhasil warna merah aga menyebar di sekujur tubuh bakpao haha..
i'm an amateur ;P
it still tastes good, though
next time, i would love to learn more cooking :)
