Vietnamese Pho

A couple weeks ago, I cried out to my book group buddies, "I need an immigrant!" Never mind my longstanding hankering to learn how to make authentic pho. Not two weeks later I was in a cooking lesson with one member's husband, who for years had been cooking his favorite traditional Vietnamese meal for his family every Sunday. Pho. It never ceases to amaze me how close we are to what we are looking for. See below for the recipe, story, how-to photos, and cooking class info.
