Vietnamese Classics: Pho, Noodles & Beyond

with Andrea Nguyen
Discover the flavors and techniques of Vietnamís most popular dishes and simmer your way to phenomenal pho!

Bring the savory, subtly spiced flavors of your favorite Vietnamese dishes to life with guidance from Vietnamese culinary expert Andrea Nguyen. Take a tour of an Asian market and learn how to stock your own Asian pantry. Make a rice paper roll that looks as good as it tastes as you learn how to work with authentic Vietnamese ingredients, and uncover Andrea’s 30 minute shortcut to delicious pho! Then dive into the traditional preparation of beef and chicken pho. You’ll find out how to create pho’s signature clear broth and develop delicious umami flavor using charred ginger, onion, shallots and a combination of spices. Assemble your bowl like a pro with Andrea’s tips, and then create a rich, fragrant pork rice noodle bowl with a homemade marinade.  Plus, discover timesaving strategies for preparing ingredients in advance, properly storing leftovers––and even throwing a pho party!

I also appreciate the information in terms of shopping for ingredients and explaining why certain processes are done the way she does them. Awesome class!!"
