Simply Pho by Helen Le

How better to spend an autumn evening than with a bowl of freshly prepared pho? This month the cookbook club tries out Helen Le’s Simply Pho. Discuss your experiences with recipes from the book with fellow home cooks and our culinary consultant, Richard Witting.

About the Book:

Whether you are cooking for one or ten, Simply Pho brings healthy homemade pho noodle soup and all the fixings straight to your table. You'll learn how to put together the perfect bowl of piping hot pho—both authentic and quicker weeknight versions--in a myriad of ways!

Helen Le is creator of the popular YouTube channel Helen's Recipes. Simply Pho also shows you how to make Vietnamese favorites--fresh and crispy spring rolls and bahn mi sandwiches--along with those that will be new and inspired favorites, such as omelets, crepes, and pizza all made with pho noodles; vermicelli noodle salads topped with beef and pork; and a variety of mi Quang noodle dishes.
