Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Shrimp ball soup (Xia wan tang)

    • lorloff on February 02, 2019

      Excellent. Added 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce recommended in a recipe by Barbara Kafka in soup of life. I used Mother’s Korea’s chile garlic sauce. Added carrots cut with peeler and small head of bok Choi. I added the stems of the bok Choi after adding the shrimp balls and added the carrots and bok Choi leaves at the end along with some additional scallions at the end.

  • Red-cooked squab (Hong shao ge zi)

    • dtremit on July 11, 2015

      Three cornish game hens may be substituted for the six squab.
