I'm Chinese and at least that one guy knew he was making something more Chinese than Japanese. He's actually quite smart because he knows he will get away with it. But then the Indian dhal buns appeared. And then the American burger buns with gherkins appeared.

@A Green Koala oh, I forgot about pickles. But now I'm genuinely curious if is actually a bad idea to add pickles, just a little and tiny cubes instead of big slices to not feel too sour (tomatoes and lettuce are a kinda nope, but adding another kind of greens instead that tastes good steamed)

@end. Yeah, but … if someone from China applied the same logic to "the West" as these Brits are applying to everything east of Iran, they _would_ be saying that you, a Brazilian, me, an American, and an Icelander and an Austrian and a Greek are, "all the same thing." Of course, we _could_ also look at this as feeding into the stereotype of Brits not knowing shit about other cultures, too.
John Weiss [he\him] 🏳️‍🌈
@end. Yeah, but … these guys shoved in _everything but_ the kind of random shit the Japanese make bao with. It's like the British think everything east of Iran is all the same country, one monolithic culture.

Kinda. Red beans are traditional, but they also have chocolate, matcha, pizza, chestnut, all sorts of flavours. Japanese are a bit more open to new and experimental stuff, compared to many other cultures. As long as it's made in Japan, by Japanese, it's Japanese. That said, for a show going about cultural representation like GBBO, it would've been better to stick to the red bean. Better yet, a truly Japanese food, like Kuzmochi, or Dango, or any number of traditional Japanese sweets and foods.

lol seriously, Japan has soooo many amazing desserts, from the traditional daifuku, nerikiri, and taiyaki, to the more modern Japanese cotton cheesecake, raindrop cake, and mochi ice cream. Japan is well known worldwide for its unique and intricate cuisine, and the show chooses steamed buns... which is a traditional Chinese cuisine... (I know Japan has nikuman buns, but it is a variation of the traditional Chinese steamed pork buns).

My first thought would be to make the baozi they want, but use actual chashu instead of the traditional char siu. The real question is how you would make it so that it doesn't taste awful since chashu marinade, while great for something like ramen tare, probably wouldn't work so well as a bun filling.

I'm Chinese who's highly invested in Japanese culture, and I can say they can be similar to each other to some degree, and I can understand if someone makes a heartless mistake when trying to distinguish the two cultures. But this, this right here, is some second-level shit. No way someone can mess up this bad if they had tried at all.

I googled Japanese buns and the only result I got for steamed buns was nikuman, which was also coincidentally the only steamed bun I've heard of being commonly eaten in Japan. That being a pork bun. Which originated in China. And in fact, nikuman is just the Japanese name for said Chinese bun. It's not a Japanese food, it's a Chinese food that is commonly eaten in Japan. Just like how sushi is commonly eaten in the US, but is Japanese. It hasn't been altered enough to be considered a part of their culture like some foods such as American pizza vs Italian pizza. It is straight up just Chinese food that people in Japan like to eat. So, in summary, it's no wonder these people made the buns with everything BUT Japanese food. Other than pork buns, steamed buns aren't super prevalent in Japan. But I believe (And I could be wrong) they're pretty common in many other parts of Asia, hence why these people all flavored them with different things. I believe they probably flavored them based on the culture they know them for best. In other words, the judges screwed them over. It was impossible for them to make a Japanese dish from the start, because the judges chose a non-Japanese food. This might as well have just been asian week.

@Cat Poke I suppose if you're comparing the frozen premade stuff you get in america yeah, that's the most common kind I've seen, mochi ice cream. It's probably not much different than the frozen premade stuff in Japan, I think the difference is we don't have everything else mochi related available here in the US. Fresh mochi made in japan you can get from a shop is leagues away from anything you'd find in the US, infact plenty of people I've met aren't even aware that mochi ice cream is a seperate entity than just mochi and all the ways that it is eaten both by itself and daifuku, etc.

@Cat Poke Ah okay, I get what you mean now.
Cat Poke

@Ann Ceres They are absolutely prevalent in Japan! Just that they haven't been adapted into a new dish yet. It's still a good old pork bun. It's a common Japanese food in the sense that it is commonly eaten in Japan, but not in the sense that it in itself is a Japanese dish. The way I see it, for a dish to be considered truly the culture's own, it has to be adapted enough or be present in their culture for long enough. Like how there's 2 kinds of pizzas- one is Italian, the other was taken from Italy, but adapted so much that it's a different dish and is now considered an American dish. Compare this to mochi. It's become quite common in U.S America. You can find mochi ice cream in just about any major store you go to, and even sometimes in gas stations. But, it's still very much Japanese, because it has changed so little. Actually I see no difference between mochi sold in America vs mochi in Japan. A common American food, but not actually American in itself. Except for Hawaiian mochi, which is its own thing! Although, if I am not mistaken, the similarity between Japanese mochi is actually a coincidence. I don't think Hawaiian mochi (Also known as butter mochi) is actually inspired by Japanese mochi at all. That said, if someone has a differing opinion, it's all very arbitrary so I won't blame them.

I could actually see the mini burger looking bun with burger filling being sold in Japan. Partly for tourists and partly because of a novelty thing. Kinda like how they have those themed Hello Kitty and other marketing cafes with cutely done up plates of curry or treats to catch the attention of kids and their parent's wallets.

@A Random Bard Domino’s Japan has a new menu. Burgers. Like, um, hamburgers? No pizza with hamburger toppings. And then a bacon thickshake. So tbh this food might go down with the chocolate covered crisp or the butter flavored milk, as some of the most Japanese ever! They do love their pandas…

Now…. I’m not Japanese, but I’m an American who really appreciates Japanese cuisine and Asian food in general because it’s just so good and is the best kind of food ever. This episode hurt. I have made a lot Japanese food with Japanese ingredients over the years and even made homemade ramen which took 2 days to make plus steamed pork buns to go on the side of that. Literally the Japanese pork buns (nikuman) I made were simple and delicious with not that many ingredients. It is literally not that hard people how tf do you mess this up and not even know which ingredients are Japanese…. I guess the meme about Brits not being able to cook is correct 😔

@LaNoir It is said that fish sauce alread.x exisited in Japan 2000years ago. so it has been here longer than soy sauce. It's still avilable locally in sea areas,however it is not as commonly used in contemporary Japanese recipes,especially in the cities. So I'd say that majority of Japanese people have not used them in their cooking and many don't know it exists.

god I remember being on social media when this episode of gbbo aired and watching people just absolutely tear into the producers for their decisions. for anyone unaware, the two other dishes they were asked to create were, iirc: a crepe cake (I think it's also called a mille-feuille?), and a generic ~kawaii~ cake (so like. just a nicely decorated cake). it was a total fucking shitshow and the most forgiving lens I can offer is that they might have been struggling to get more niche ingredients like mochiko or adzuki beans. that or the pissbaby judges were scared of foods they weren't familiar, which is always a distinct possibility with those tossers.

I live in Zhengzhou and I love the buns at the bun shops because they're so cheap - 2 yuan for vegetable ones or 4 yuan for meat ones. They're called bao. I've only been to Japan once, but buns seem a Chinese thing. I do love this show though, because it's a reality show where the producers don't generate false conflict. It's a very sweet show.

I think it’s worth knowing that the contestants always play with the themes loosely. They might do French macrons and add macha, they might make an English Victoria sponge and add rose water and pistachios. The ‘Japanese week’ is to be inspired by Japanese bakes but to turn them into their own thing.

@DjAmaratzi I'm a bit late to the party, but kon'nichiwa is correct. ん can be written as n or as n' This is usually used to disambiguate ん following あいうえお. For example, しんえつ would be written as shin'etsu instead of shinetsu to make sure it isn't confused with しねつ. However, there is no rule that says it may only be used in those cases - you can add the apostrophe whenever you want, it just isn't very common. Personally, though, I do think I like the apostrophe before なにぬねの as well. konnichiwa kinda looks like こっにちは. Of course, this doesn't actually exist and it's fairly obvious that it's こんにちは, but I like the additional clarity.

So the thing about GBBO is that they’re supposed to take the brief and put their own twist on it. I think the only way to really judge the bakers for not sticking with a specific theme is to judge the technical challenge. That’s the one where all of the ingredients are set by the show and they have to cook with those. The signature and showstopper all allow for creative and personal interpretation. We should judge the show for calling buns Japanese instead of judging the bakers for how they fill them

I think the idea was that the buns were Japanese, so that’s all you needed. You can fill them with whatever country’s food you want. Only problem is meat buns are not originally from Japan.

@Doug Anderson Your statment that american soldier are supposed to have brought Ramen to Japan is blatantly wrong. Ramen is a japanified version of Chinese pintang based soups. They where brought to Japan by Chinese immigrants in the 1890s to Yokohama and Osaka. The Chinese immigrants started to adapt them to Japanese taste to be able to sell them as cheap and fast meals to Japanese customers. They where fairly popular and started becoming fully integrated into Japanese culture. As Japan was totally bombed out, struggeling economically and lacked sufficient rice after WWII Ramen and other noodle dishes became a cheap alternative to make sure people had something to eat. American soldiers would probably have seen Ramen a lot, but they had zero to do with that introducing the dish to Japan.

Help me out, here. In this British television show, you're supposed to use every world cuisine *except* for the one after which the episode is named? i.e. in Japanese week, you aim to use every cuisine other than Japanese? If that's the case then these cooks did wonderfully.

@Ré That sounds rather misleading though doesn’t it? Why bother naming an episode after a country if you’re not going to use ingredients that are even remotely close to said country. You’d think that an episode named “Japanese Week” would at least incorporate some form of Japanese food or ingredient.

For example in German week this season Jürgen (who is German), added espresso flavour to this German biscuits. Espresso is not German but the method of making the biscuits is. I'm completely down for pointing out cultural insensitivity but I think people are outraged here over a misunderstanding? Uncle Roger is doing it for comedy but the amount of people actually upset here is bizarre to me.

There used to be a show here in the US called Cupcake Wars. One of the episodes was Chinese New Year themed, and one of the contestants decorated her cupcakes with little takeout boxes and fortune cookies made out of fondant. Watching the judges tell her that neither of those things are actually Chinese in origin was kinda satisfying and it's almost refreshing to know that this kinda crap happens elsewhere in the world.

Agree with hypotalapotamus. I feel she's a good baker. I searched for the video and watch the part where the judge said fortune cookies is a stereotype and he also said "downgrading Chinese culture to Chinese restaurant". The theme was CNY so maybe the judge expecting sometime more to the CNY celebrations instead of a Chinese take out restaurant? I don't know how Chinese in other country celebrates their CNY but in my country or maybe I should say in my family, we don't really use fortune cookies in any occasion? I've been celebrating CNY since little and I've never seen fortune cookies in anyone's house. Not many Chinese restaurant that I've been to have fortune cookies. They normally give us wet tissues or herbal sweets XD Maybe things such as red pockets, tangerine trees, firecrackers, fireworks and calligraphy would be more suitable for the Chinese New Year theme.

America has such a psychotic history that tender grievances are many and easy to step on. Chinese American restaurants wouldn't exist as they do today (fortune cookies and all) without some seriously disturbing white supremacists policies. The cupcake baker didn't know that and the judges rightly called her out for it, but I don't hold it against her. She seemed like a very skilled contestant and wasn't acting out of malice.

For American week they are suppose to make burgers. British chef: Ok, so for the meat I am mixing curry and sushi. For the bun I am using kosher flat bread imported from Israel. And for the traditional American topping...I will be using vegtable kimchi, smoked tarantula legs(mid/north African fyi...though they typically to not just eat the legs), and some mooncheese I purchased from a moonman cheese farmer. This should be identical to a Mcronalds double cheeseburger. (Mooncheese is green and taste like a sweaty foot dipped in eel slime) British Judge: Am I at Mcronanlds in the states right now, because I cannot if tell the difference? If only I had some crispy 'chips' to go with it. British chef: Got you covered. (Hands judge raw squid tentacles with scooped out goat eyes stuck in the suction cups dusted in a seasoning blend of volcanic ash, broken glass, and radioactive dirt from Cherynoble.) British judge: My god! Perfect.(Dies from cancer, internal bleeding and toxins.) British cook: Feels cook when you nail something. Whether it be a cooking dish or Jesus to the cross. I hope this was not too ethnocentric. I am half white....but hopefully zero British. Their food does suck.

@Pbabies in Space Well, of course it depends on who is making the food, but personally I would recommend things like shepherd's/cottage pie, sticky toffee pudding, bakewell tart, trifle, haggis, Cornish pasties, scotch eggs, and of course 'hybrid foods' which are foods from around the Empire (especially India), but very popular in Britian, for example chicken tikka masala and kedgeree. Of course, it also depends on personal preferences. British food tends to be more filling and hearty, as it is usually cold and rainy. So if you lived in a hotter climate, then it would be less appealing.

@Zimtschnecke I have been to England twice when I was 8 and 13. My parents were obsessed with fish and chips. And I hate fish. It may have just been culture shock at a young age, but we went to France and Germany and I remember enjoying the food there. As an adult I have been to Cambodia, Japan, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. The food in Canada is basically American but the other country's food is amazing. My only memory of a country where I hated the food is the UK. Other than America. We have both the best and worst food in the world. I guess that's what happens when you put every culture into a pot and boil it. I have am a cook and looked up many British dishes and they just do not seem appetizing. Any suggestions?

“饅頭(manjyuu)” might be the steam bun traditionally eaten at japan, although similar things are found in China too. They even share the same Chinese characters because it originates from China, but it came in Japan at around 1200 A.D. so they did develop differently. Sweet red bean will basically be the only filling since we didn’t eat meat (one of the big difference with the Chinese ones). “酒饅頭(Saka-Manjyu)” is my favorite. Uses Japanese Sake lees to ferment the dough, so there is a slight smell of sake when steamed. Warm and delicious. And no, we do not fill it with pork or curry😂

@Kitten Mimi there are two other challenges which Uncle Roger doesn’t show: a matcha tea one and a “kawaii” one. I think that’s fairly strongly Japanese themed. I do agree that “steamed buns” is a weird choice because, like everyone else, I associate them more with China than Japan. They were probably looking for a dish which would give the bakers maximum flexibility with flavours, test their baking skills, and fit into the time constraints; but still, I’m surprised they couldn’t identify something better.

@SKN no, it’s not the same, because they were asked to make “steamed buns”, not “Japanese steamed buns”, and in fact they were specifically told that they could use whatever flavours they liked. The Japanese theme informed the choice of challenge (to do steamed buns as opposed to, say, fruit pies), but they were never told to use specifically Japanese flavours and indeed it would be unusual on Bake Off for them to be given restricted flavours in the Signature challenge. I do agree that steamed buns was a weird choice, because I too mainly associate them with China not Japan, but they did better in the second and third challenges on that front (which Uncle Roger omits from his video). And the bakers had every right to choose flavours from around the world on this programme.
