The Pho Cookbook

Can you ever get enough soup?  Whether it's cold or hot outside, I can always eat soup.  It must stem from my grandmother's chicken soup, which enthralls my childhood memories, and is, of course, associated with love.  French onion soup at Famous-Barr, a local department store chain in St. Louis, is another of my touchstone soup memories.

Today I will go out of my way looking for a spot that is known for its great bowls of steamy delights.  Some of my most satisfying experiences, outside of our home, are definitely bowls of ramen and pho.  My first guest, Andrea Nguyen, has written a primer on pho that will appeal to pho novices, as well as, those more nuanced pho eaters.  Enjoy listening, preferably while you down a bowl of pho.



Closer to home, the second segment of the show features former Fairfield resident Willy Blackmore.  Willy is a freelance journalist, now living in rural Maine.  Some of his recent pieces include a concise primer on making the perfect omelette, and non-trendy restaurant choices in Paris.  

Don't miss the next LIVE GREAT TASTE show at Green Building Supply, Tuesday, September 5.  It's all about paneer with Sabita Sawhney.
