Dear Robin, thank you the contribution of all your wonderful recipes. Do you ever get out of the kitchen? :-). With respect to Chop Suey, are you aware that is an American dish? Legend has it while he was visiting New York City in August 1896, the chefs of Chinese Ambassador Li HUng Chang invented the dish for his American guests. Others claim it had its origins in San Francisco by Chinese laborers working on the railroads and originally consisted of chicken or shrimp, onions, bean sprouts, water chestnuts, mushrooms and other available vegetables all served over rice and flavored with soy sauce.
