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???
