This is the recipe as taught in the Main Line School Night class on Regional Chineses Cooking by Betty Foo, chef & co-owner of the Hunan Restaurant in Ardmore PA. Originally a Sichuan regional specialty, hot and sour soup has become a staple at every chinese restaurant, no matter what regional style they have as a specialty. This recipe is authentic to the region, both because Betty is from the region and based on review of Chinese regional cookbooks. Clearly, as with many soups, individual variations are easy and can vary the flavor considerably. One of the ways I judge any chinese restaurant the first time I eat there is by the quality of their hot and sour soup ... this one is superb!
