Mrs. Chan's Table in the Black Camel
For Labor Day, Mrs. Chan* has included a recipe from Helen Corbitt (the former master chef of Neiman-Marcus fame who had a multitude of her cookbooks published over the years plus giving master classes that included Mrs. Chan* herself!).
You can fix it ahead as is and/or adapt it to your tastes and/or needs, as Mrs. Chan would herself!
Good Eating and Happy Labor Day with your family!
