Wanton Soup


20 wanton skins
Roast pork and/or chicken cut in strips
1 bundle pakchoy (bok choy)
Eschallot, celery
¼ lb carrot or a piece of pumpkin
1 tsp black pepper
2 pints water or chicken stock
½ tsp shee-yow (soya sauce)
1 dsp vetsin (MSG)
Salt to taste


Beef, chicken, prawns or pork -- minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg (to bind)
Pinch of vetsin and sugar to taste


  • Put the stock on to boil and then reduce the heat to allow the stock to simmer. Remove excess fat.
  • Chop the meat finely for the filling. Add salt, pepper, sugar, vetsin and egg yolk to bind. Put a teaspoonful on each wanton skin, fold, seal edges securely with the tines of a fork, and then paint with egg white.
  • Drop the folded wantons into the stock and cook for 8 minutes. Add the vegetables, seasoning and chicken or pork cut in strips. Cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Put the cooked wantons into a tureen. Pour the soup over. Garnish with chopped celery and eschallot.

White Bread


1 oz yeast
2 tsp sugar
4 tsp salt
4 lb flour
¼ lb shortening
Warm water


  • Dissolve the sugar in a little warm water then sprinkle yeast on top and allow it to rise.
  • Sift the flour and salt, and add about ¼ of the total amount of flour to the yeast mixture. Cover and leave in a warm place to set the sponge (i.e. until the mixture is bubbly) -- about 1 hour.
  • Rub the shortening into the remainder of the flour using fingertips or a fork.
  • Add the rest of the flour to the yeast mixture and knead well until a smooth elastic dough is formed. Add some more warm water if necessary, as a hard dry dough does not rise well.
  • Put the dough in a greased or floured bowl, cover and leave to rise to twice its size.
  • Knead lightly to avoid bursting any bubbles, and without using extra flour if possible. Mould or shape into loaves.
  • Cover and prove (i.e. put to rise again for 20 - 30 minutes).
  • Bake in a hot oven until thoroughly cooked.
