Jenny Morris Shares a Recipe for Vietnamese Pho

Taste the World with Jenny MorrisJenny Morris, author of Taste the World with Jenny Morris, has shared a recipe for delicious Vietnamese Pho and noodles.

Shivering in Cape Town this winter, Morris thinks back to her holiday in Vietnam and decides to raid her freezer of beef shin and oxtail and whip up a batch of the warming broth.

One of the happiest travel memories is slurping a bowl of delicious Vietnamese Pho and noodles in Hoi Chi Minh City. I love the Vietnamese cuisine. It has been influenced by the Chinese, with the finesse of French, and the spices of India. What I love about Vietnamese food is the balance of flavour, textures and temperature; nothing is too sour or salty, and you can control the heat. All food is consumed to nurture and heal. When I first arrived in Vietnam I didn’t know what to expect, but I had an idea of what I wanted to taste because I had tried Vietnamese food before. I was curious though – would it taste better, or just different? Oh boy, it was far better than anything I could ever have imagined.
