      It's on my blog. oriquilt.blogspot.com

      Mantou are period to at least the Song Dynasty. Since it's mentioned in the
      Romance of the Three Kingdoms, which was during written during the Southern
      Song. Supposedly Zhuge Liang ordered them made, so possibly Three Kingdoms?
      Bao zi are also mentioned by the same author in Outlaws of the Marsh. Shui
      Hu Zhuang. Although, it was at a "hei dian" black store. The proprietors fed
      their customers drugged aromatic meat buns, then they butchered the
      customers and turned them into the next round of aromatic meat buns. Talk
      about mystery meat. Anyway, the way that baozi are mentioned indicate that
      they were a common food item that people should be familiar with, kind of
      like hamburger today.

      Aren't you in Brooklyn?
