Personal Notes:
This recipe is from "Madam Wong's Long-Life chinese Cookbook". Once upon a time I helped my mom make a special Chinese feast for a dinner party she had for some friends. The menu included this soup, followed by egg rolls, Beef with Cauliflower and Peas, Imperial Shrimp, steamed rice, and whipped banana yogurt with almond cookies. If you'd like to prepare a special dinner, all of these recipes are in this cookbook.
