Lunch Specail- Kua Keing !

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

A very Great class!

It was a great class with fun and interesting people. Most of them just got back from Thailand and fall in love with food and would like to make it at home. I hope that everyone in the class learned something tonight and master all of those dishes at their own kitchen.

Khao Mun Kai!

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.

Afternoon Tea With Me!

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.
