Andrea Nguyen has spent decades working to demystify Vietnamese cuisine while bridging culinary traditions with contemporary practices. In 2006, she authored the first comprehensive full-color cookbook devoted to Vietnamese food in the English language. In her newest work, The Pho Cookbook, she thoughtfully chronicles Vietnam’s national food and comfort soup, pho. Join us for a conversation and tasting as Andrea dives deep into pho’s origins, dispelling myths of a colonial history and discussing pho’s place in present-day America. Andrea will walk us through pho’s intricate ingredients in a cooking demonstration and tasting.
