Birds nest soup is one of the most extravagant culinary foods in Chinese culture. It has been around for 400 years and is prized for its rarity, its nutritional benefits, and for its texture to taste.


  • 3 full pieces of birds nest
  • 3 cups of water

  • 1 thumb size ginger

  • ⅓ cup of rock sugar

  • 1 cup of coconut milk

  • 1 dried red date



 To prepare birds nest for cooking, make sure to soak it in cold water for 3-4 hours prior to cooking. Soaking the bird nest will rehydrate and it will expand to a softer texture. Birds nest is extremely delicate, so cooking it for a long period of time will cause it to melt and lose its texture. The recommended amount for cooking the birds nest is 30-45 minutes maximum.
