Notes

Italian egg drop soup is easy to prepare but has a great impact.It is not exactly clear what broth people used. Many old recipes mention beef broth, brodo di carne. But then change idea and talk about chicken broth. Either work well. What is instead abhorrance is the use of vegetable broth. As it goes with popular preparations, they spread. Stracciatella originates in  Rome.  Others added new ingredients. In Emilia-Romagna they call this soup from paradise. They add lemon zest, nutmeg and marjoram.In the Marche region instead breadcrumb goes in. Making this a rather thick soup. Some add semolina to the soup.Stracciatella is comfort food. And you eat comfort food at home. Specially when things look bleak. So do not expect it on the menu of any restaurant.
