Pork Floss Buns
52 weeks of baking – Local Favorites
When I was a kid and went to the mall with my friends on the weekend we’d usually see a movie, get a fancy coffee and browse through the book store. Before I left to return home I’d often stop at my favorite bakery, Bread Talk, they are known for their creative breads with cute names. Crouching tiger hidden bacon: bread spiraled with ham and cheese, buns in the shape of a face stuffed with meat and cakes decorated with whipped cream and intricate fruit. My all time favorite item was pork floss buns, fluffy, slightly sweet bun smeared with mayonnaise and pressed into pork floss. Pork floss is the cotton candy of the meat world, dehydrated pork jerky is shredded into threads and toasted with a little sugar. It has an unique texture, dry, crumbly and a little grainy at the same time, but the moisture from the mayo helps with that and it’s all apart of the experience.
