This creation was inspired by the popular and renowned "Bookbinder's Snapper Soup" served at the Bookbinder's Restaurant in Philadelphia, PA. Estb. 1865. It is available in cans on some grocer's shelves. I visited Bookbinder's on a couple of occasions, and savored their gem.
I call it Mock Turtle because I use chicken or beef in lieu of the Snapper Turtle.
It still has the same great taste. The worcestershire sauce and the sherry make the recipe.
It's one of the selections in the first of my two cookbooks (Backwood's Victuals) compiled for and by family and friends. Pictures are of my second cookbook.
