WWDH - Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup

This week's Wednesday with Donna Hay has a distinctly Asian flavour in the form of Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup from page 30 of Modern Classics 1.  Chaya is our host this week and selected this dish.  Chicken and sweet corn soup is a Chinese classic, on the menu as a starter at most Chinese restauarnts, and is a good choice for its light but flavoursome qualities.

This was rather lovely soup - nice enough to take to work for lunch.  It is also relatively simple to make.  I substituted the Chinese rice wine for sherry, which I read has the closest flavour to the rice wine.

To see what Chaya and Margaret thought of this soup, do go visit them.

Oh, that looks so pretty the way you have it all presented with that lovely bowl and the pretty linen. What a great lunch...I am a big fan of soup, always.

This is the time of year that I enjoy soup and this one looks good.
