"Have it while it's still warm! Don't let it cool."
"Drink slowly, be careful!"
Oh how much love is encapsulated in a bowl of Mama's soup!
Drinking soup is a big part of Chinese culture. Every family, at different times of year, will drink different kinds of soup.
Every bowl of soup represents the flavours passed down from generation to generation. And every bowl of soup, represents a delicious message of love.
This book features a mother making nine different of the most commonly made Chinese soups, for her daughter. Through this journey, not only will young readers learn about the ingredients and the process that go into making these traditional soups, they will also see the love and labour that producing a bowl of soup represents.
From the green bean soup enjoyed in the hot summer months, to the red bean soup for winter months, to the chicken mushroom soup for when you're sick, to the fish soup mom always prepares around exam time, to lotus seed soup for helping with stress at work... there is a soup for every season and every situation!
Every soup featured the book is accompanied by a step-by-step recipe, so young readers can follow along and recreate it themselves afterwards!
