Wonton Soup

André Baranowski

"Even though wontons in broth have been established here as a traditional soup course," says Irene Kuo in her book The Key to Chinese Cooking_ (Knopf, 1977), in which a version of this recipe appears, "in China the dish is considered a snack." Look for high-quality fresh wonton wrappers at your local Chinese market; the thinner varieties are superior.
