Description

With this comprehensive cookbook, Vietnam’s most beloved, aromatic comfort food--the broth and noodle soup known as pho--is now within your reach.

Author Andrea Nguyen first tasted pho in Vietnam as a child, sitting at a Saigon street stall with her parents. That experience sparked a lifelong love of the iconic noodle soup, long before it became a cult food item in the United States.

Here Andrea dives deep into pho’s lively past, visiting its birthplace and then teaching you how to successfully make it at home. Options range from quick weeknight cheats to impressive weekend feasts with broth and condiments from scratch, as well as other pho rice noodle favorites. Over fifty versatile recipes, including snacks, salads, companion dishes, and vegetarian and gluten-free options, welcome everyone to the pho table.

With a thoughtful guide on ingredients and techniques, plus evocative location photography and deep historical knowledge, The Pho Cookbook enables you to make this comforting classic your own.

    I am so glad I chose this book to read. I fell in love with Pho soup. I used to go to a local market for lunches and fell in. I looked at the soup and started to try to make my own Pho. I got a good soup. I can't believe that all that I used is what I used. I prefer chicken broth with the narrow rice noodles. Then I add thin sliced onions to turn clear. Then I add bean sprouts and my cilantro. I stir around to soften them. Now comes my favorite flavor is Hoisin Sauce. Yum! Yum! Luckily there is a good Asian store nearby. I am going to try the yellow sugar cubes. I hope everyone will use this cookbook to make their own Pho. You won't regret it! Enjoy your Soup! I volunteered to read and review this book.
