When I was participating at BakeFestDXB (http://spontaneous-euphoria.blogspot.com/2010/09/bake-fest-dxb.html), I met the girl behindhttp://www.foodonymph.com/ who told me that she and a few other food bloggers meet every month to try something new in the world of food! I was so excited to join the group and yesterday we took a Thai cooking class at the International Center for Culinary Arts in Hana Center. It was a lot of fun, I got to meet other food bloggers out there, and it was a very exciting- and delicious-process throughout. We were in pairs of two and my partner was Anja. She has a lovely blog that you can check out here: http://anjasfood4thought.blogspot.com/
I can't seem to find the links for all the other blogs!Ingredients for the papaya salad dressing.
Here are some pictures from last night as well as the menu.

raw papaya salad with cashews and dressing
thai red curry fish with jasmine rice
pandan leaves and coconut caramel pudding (soo moist, amazing texture, lovely!!!)
Cherry tomatoes for the papaya salad. I had no idea cherry tomatoes were used in Thai cooking. I thought it was just a Mediterranean thing.
The delicious papaya salad.
