Cisco's Team Building!

Kris “Cisco” and his Angels descended on Sunshine’s Thai cooking class for some serious “team building”. First off everyone autographed the aprons for each other

Next we all shifted to making fresh spring rolls where we had a winner for the best looking and the highest production – six rolls in just a few minutes”. After devouring the spring rolls, it was back to chopping Chinese broccoli, chicken, and big fat noodles for the pad se el. Once again the completion heated up with a great show of wok handling to make some outrageously good pad se Ew

Come to dessert time “mango sticky rice” here the creative talent came into play with decorative mangos design almost too good to eat – a heart, bicycle, face topped with some sweet-salty coconut sauce.

If you are a fan of Pad See Ew then this dish is not as too new for you in term of the ingredients but the noodle soak with the thick Thai style instated of just stir fried. You also can add the chili pepper into the dish if you like spicy taste.

I have no idea how much I like this Bread Pudding-I ate two of thouse after it cool down from the oven right the way!!!

The crispy on the top and the moise inside.

This class was really fun - my kitchen turned into a competion of the chefs. It was a challenge of the three men vs the three women. You probably can guess who the winner was!

This is my first class after came back from my trip. Pad Thai is always popular for everyone who want to learn how to make Thai food at the first time. It is very simple ingredients and fast easy dish to make. I believe that all of them can make one now even though one of them never had an experience cooking. Good choice to choose this dish to start.

Yum Khai Down

I could say Yum Khai Down is an entree even though it is a salad dish. I can say that because it is not just only vegetable in there is mix so many kind of meat and seafood. You can add any kind of meat you like but the main thing you need to have is fried egg. The dressing is similar to papaya salad if you already know how to make papaya slad already so this dish it won't be be hard. It is go with noodle and serve on the rice is good as well.

I couldn't count how many spring roll they had for each person but I believe at least three:))
After all the food, we had to do a little exercise before the dessert, so I gave a basic Cha Cha Cha and seem everyone are a fast learner!!

Ladies Night in the Kitchen

This class with Patel and Seema was a blast – both were really into cooking, enjoying good food, and having fun. We had so much fun that the three hour class was over in no time and we spent a lot of extra time making cute presentations with the mango sticky rice. It was really interesting to talk about the differences and the similarity between Thai and Indian food, especially how spices are used – I think we both learned a lot and in the process got to know each other. I love this type of class and look forward to the next one.

Papaya Salad, Pad See Ewe and Mango Sticky Rice are good combination for dinner.
My students fall in love with Thai food and want to know how to make those dishes.
First, They though making Thai food is so complicated but after took the class,
they didn't think how easy it is-esp how to make a sticky rice:)..

Papaya Salad and Mango Sticky Rice

I decided to teach how to make papaya salad for the first time because one of my students requested it for his father's birthday. Teaching how to make papaya is more fun than I though. The fun part starts from preparing the papaya, the pounding and seasoning. I teach in two difference way- Thai traditional way with the wood mortar and American way of tossing in a mixing bowl.
a good thing about papaya salad - it has a combination favor - sweet, sour, salty and spicy, so everyone can play and adjust these to their own taste.

However, it doesn't metter how full the students are from the appitizer and entree, when it comes to dessert time-they never say no for the mango sticky rice. An interesting thing I've noticed many class is the students get more creative and having fun playing with the mango - this part of the class turns to a work of art. The dessert turns out great and with a nice presentation as you see in those pictures. It is hard to say who is the winner this time, don't you think???
