Guest post from the lovely Ms Caroline Frick in the US of A!
In the Photoplay Cook Book from which this recipe hails, Anna May reportedly defined Egg Foo Yung as “The simplest Chinese recipe of all…a delicious luncheon dish.” Therefore, I chose to slap it together for a nice Saturday afternoon supper. Well, I hate to break it to our readers, but not only do I think that this is one of the worst things I have ever put in my mouth, but I also believe that there is NO way Anna May would have let this touch her lips. I am not going to mince my words. This is NOT a do-over in any way shape or form. Indeed, it is only my sincere love and admiration for the Anna May Wong that prevents me from being even more blunt.
To be honest, I had been the most scared of Janet Gaynor’s cheese foundu recipe – but the Egg Foo Yung has made me start dreaming of it.
More on the flip.
