So tasty....
I helped make 3 dishes with a partner (or two) - Samosas, Tandoori Chicken and Indian Green Beans. It was another totally hectic class, but one of the best meals.

S'mores Pie

I have always wanted to try this pie. I love S'Mores by the campfire- nothing can beat that. BUT this is a close second to get all those flavors, in a slightly more civilized (read: less sticky) manner.
I made this to bring to a Super Bowl party, and I think it turned out great! I was pleased with its flavor and consistency. And by the end, there was nothing left- which means others enjoyed it too.
Side note- I FINALLY got to use my kitchen torch! Woo-hoo! And I like burned, crispy marshmallow, so the browned/bubbled spots actually are intended.
Another side note- I totally failed at making the marshmallow at first. But I tried again, and it turned out just fine. Making marshmallow is harder than it looks.


Everyone in my class is so talented! We made Chinese and Japanese food yesterday, and each dish turned out so delicious. I made Gyoza. Pretty easy actually, just a little time consuming assembling each single gyoza. My frying/steaming technique could use some practice, but not a difficult thing, just need to practice to feel more confident.

My Sunday Asian feast...
