It was nice having a team from Lumosity joined my class again , so Thanks to Erika who organized the group . A lot of laughs we had in the class, from papaya man , magic sauce team and chop chop people. Everything came out so good- thank everyone for eating all the food and cooked all those delicious meals.
It was a very fun group !!!! They were 2 people celebrated their birthday in my class tonight ! Everyone was get along and works well from the beginning. We made three course and they nailed all of the food, no food left on the plates . The foods were spicy and very hot dish but everyone went through which i gave thumb up.
At the end of the class is what I loved- everyone asking each other information and would like to keep in touch- see ,,food bring everything- fun, friends and full stomach .
They both love Thai food and cooking. In this class,Even though it was only two of them but it was so fun and we learned a lot from each other - not only food but personal life.. I love this job because I get to see and meet a lot of interesting people in life.

Kua Keing !
It was a great lunch . A simple delicious dishes for whoever love spicy dish -Kua Keing!
This dish might not be easy to find in united state and I wonder why because it is so so good, or may be because it it too hot for american people. Basically, it made from a yellow curry paste and using a stir fired method instead of boiling as other curry with a bunch of kaffir lime leafs I cooked my rice with a butter fly pea that I brought it from Thailand to add vitamin and beautiful color to my dish for my guest

Khao Mun Kai or Thai chicken with oily rice!
I am sure whoever is a fan of Thai food will know this dish. In San Francisco, you can find this it some restaurant and it will cost you $12-$15 per order and everywhere in Thailand, probably 2 dollars maximum.
There are too many steps to accomplish this dish because it takes three component to complete the good favor and texture. Three important things and need to be done right are Rice, Sauce and chicken.
Foe me, I am a sauce person , so the sauce would be my first thing that I can determine either this dish is good or not.Sauce made from blending Thai herbs- base is ginger, garlic and chilies and just soft boil cook in low heat for 10 mms. It should taste between sweet, salty ,sour and spicy . Cooking rice is easy but add a good favor into the rice with a good favor chicken stock to get and oily rice is not that easy but it did came out great.. I fried the garlic with a fat chicken then add the stock from slow cooking for 3 hours. I boil the chicken for 3 hours with Thai herbs- galangal, kaffir lime and daikon which get the best favor and most tender meat. I love this dish even though it takes a lot of work to make it good but it is worth.

My special guests are Ananda and Christine. You will see there are quite a lot of dessert we had on the table but we did ate it all- I know it was bad but too good couldn't help. Choux or cream puff or portfolio , you can call it which is a pastry ball make from the same dough. It is light and crispy texture.
Pâte à Choux Green Tea Chantilly!
Russian Honey Cake!
The petite 6 layers Russian honey cake .. I actually made this a couple days before having it with other sweet which is actually perfect because this cake it need to let it set for a day after you make before you can eat to get the dough and cream homogenize into a favor.It wasn't difficult as it looks and also fun to do it too.

My personal, I love everyhting with green tea and this bring me back a good memory when I visited Japan where I ate green tea ice cream everyday. I also, mad a drink- green tea latte and a matcha cookies beside macarons. I can't wait to go back school and come back to share more of my experience at Le Cordon Blue in Paris with my Diploma in pastry chef at the end of this year. I hope to open pastry class after all I have learned,so "Stay tune".
