National Bao Day is coming!

Bao is a Chinese dimsum item that comes in many forms, but in essence, is a pastry that consists of bread on the outside and some kind of filling on the inside. The filling can range from BBQ pork to mushrooms, to leafy green veggies, to shrimp, custard, to red bean jam—you name it. The name "bao" literally means "to wrap" in Chinese—a food that is wrapped in bread.
