At my parents’ house my mother spends a lot of time in the kitchen, while my father is playing guitar, organ or is singing karaoke. Classic for an Asian family you will tell me.
The papaya salad is like a little story of my life. I have been eating this dish since I was a little boy, not to say baby: at family dinners, at weddings, even at Christmas. Okay I’m exaggerating a little bit but it’s almost that.
A classic of Asian cuisine! In Laos we call it Bun Bi. I never really needed to cook this dish because I very often had the opportunity to enjoy the one of my mom. As I am far now and because you don’t cross the oceans everyday I decided to cook this dish myself!
