"What's in the recipe?" the reporter asks. "Six to four," the man says.I am never ever going to eat anything in China! Hmmm, maybe fast food.
"You mean 60% cardboard? What is the other 40%?" asks the reporter. "Fatty meat," the man replies.
The bun maker then shows how the product is made. Squares of cardboard picked from the ground are soaked to a pulp in caustic soda - used to make paper and soap - then chopped. Fatty pork and powdered seasoning are stirred in.
Soon, steaming buns appear. The reporter takes a bite. "This baozi filling is kind of tough. Not much taste," he says. "Can other people taste the difference?"
"It fools the average person," the maker says. "I don't eat them myself."
