“Eight Treasures” Stewed White Gourd Soup is a classic Cantonese dish which is rich in color and taste. As a seasonal dish, it can usually be seen at high-end banquets in midsummer. The soup is pure white and the white gourd tastes tender and soft. What’s special about this dish is that the chef will carve all kinds of delicate patterns on the peel of the melon which makes the dish not only delicious but also delightful to look at.

“Eight Treasures” Stewed White Gourd Soup stews the eight ingredients with soup and is later put in a white gourd. An evening primrose is sometimes placed on top of the ingredients which may add more delightfulness to the dish.
