Thank you to by Helen Le, Quarto Publishing Group – Race Point Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me the extreme pleasure of access to an advanced reader copy of “Simply Pho: A Complete Course in Preparing Authentic Vietnamese Meals at Home” for an honest review. Whereas Clam Chowder was the soup of my childhood, Pho has become my go-to for all things in the last four-five years of my life. Grey and rainy overcast day? Time for pho! Great, surprise accomplishment in my life, which calls for a celebration? Time for Pho! Thus, I could not pass up a chance to get my hands on a book for how to make it myself. While I was super, super, super hoping (and expecting) that this would be a book all about Pho, I suppose I should have paid more attention to the subtitle and how it was about meats plural. There are several dishes covered in this book including sandwiches, snacks, and desserts. While I prefer a bowl with steak in it myself, I am pleased to report that there are vegetarian and vegan recipes in this book, as well. The structure is night, as is the layout. The pictures could have used a little work, but the group and scenic photos added a touch of class to its work as a whole. Definitely a book worth having in any kitchen.
This cookbook is AMAZING! The pictures are great and the instructions are precise. Most of the ingredients are easily accessible. Vietnamese recipes are very simple and fresh. To my greatest delight, there is even a recipe for bahn mi, a Vietnamese baguette that is used for my favorite Vietnamese sandwiches.
