Bao/Disney/Pixar, Binging with Babish/YouTube

In case you somehow missed it, Pixar's Bao nabbed Best Animated Short Film at this year's Oscars. The film tells the story of a Chinese woman who lives out her motherhood dreams with a homemade dumpling who comes to life. The short is filled with images of a dumpling that looks equal parts adorable and delicious.

Leading up to the awards show, the film's Chinese-Canadian director Domee Shi released her mother's dumpling recipe and one YouTuber has shown us all how to make it.


The recipe includes complete directions for making both the tasty pork filling along with the somewhat intimidating dough.

Youtuber Binging with Babish decided to embark on making Domee Shi's mom's dumplings.

He captioned the cooking tutorial,

"Bao is a beautifully animated, thematically mature, subtle and nuanced portrait of the human condition - in other words, it's a Pixar production. To celebrate the Oscars this coming weekend, let's dive into the director's mom's own recipe, as we attempt to recreate a food so delicious, you'll want to raise it as your own until it tries to leave you and you eat it."

The video shows Babish struggling to make the Bao dumplings, repeatedly making mistakes and encouraging his viewers not to make the same errors.

First he makes the mistake of proving the dough without using that time to mix the filling.

Second he doesn't put oil on the papers he places the dumplings on for steaming. This causes his first batch of dumplings to stick and break when he attempts to pick them up.

Babish's humble tutorial and the delicious result have inspired people everywhere to make their own dumplings.







For others it simply reinforced their love for the Academy Award winning short.



Now I'm hungry.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"
