Not only a gourmet, but anyone can judge how appetizing and flavorful Egg Drop Soup is. Dish is an amazing Appetizer to set the Chinese table. I have a weakness for egg, thus I prepare this recipe often. To make dish you need only 80 minutes. In my view, if one calls oneself a good cook, one must have a personal recipe of Egg Drop Soup, just like I do.
