An interesting piece by the Portland Press Herald looks at the owner of Pho Co and how she learned to prepare pho.
Chau Du did not come to America with secret family recipes and a lifelong dream of opening up a restaurant. A decade ago she didn’t even know how to cook. But when she fell in love with an American and prepared to move to Portland to be with him, she gave herself a crash course in Vietnamese cooking. Via YouTube, with an assist from her mother.
