Thai Inspired Coconut & Pandan Custard
This is a recipe by Carolyn Kumpe of EBRS. Carolyn taught this recipe when we did a Thai cooking class together. There were 21 students in class and absolute fun! After the class was over and we sat down to eat, I had the dessert first. It was a spoonful of heaven..really very delicate and extremely light too. The garnish is pandan cake we found at the Asian Market in Sacramento. Here is a little info on Pandan
The culinary center offers fun cooking classes and the store is akin to Disneyland for me. Their selection of kitchen tools and pots and pans is simply mind blowing. Please check out classes in March
