Hot and Sour soup, one of My favorites of all time!! I am not sure if there is a right or wrong way to make it. There are so many variations , some are obviously simple in their execution and the final product is evident , a soup with maybe one or two bold flavors but not complex. There are others that have deep flavors , some of the ingredients not indigenous to our province but are welcomed such as bamboo shoots, tree fungus, eggs, tofu, pork, mini shrimp , sesame oil, chilli flakes etc.
I love a hot and sour soup that by the mere smell of it makes your taste buds tingle . This blog touches on some of my findings during my travels in Newfoundland and Labrador (and beyond).
