One of the most important skills an Asian chef can learn is how to prepare a delicious soup broth.
There are so many memories and good feelings that can be tied back to a good soup stock.

Even when we lost our appetite, a good soup always warmed our tummy, and our heart. This is the essence of an excellent stock.
