According to the Frug, it is one of the most famous soups in China, and it uses real birds' nests. I will let you read about the regurgitated gelatinous liquid on your own .

I really do love his cookbooks, especially his dim sum recipes/techniques/etc. in the Chinese sections.

Heck yah I remember Jeff Smith! I have an entire series of his cooking videos, a series of Julia Child videos, a series of Jacques Pepin videos.

Those were the great PBS triple threat!

Well, here's a dirty little secret - when I was in Hong Kong I had both Shark Fin Soup and Bird's Nest Soup in the same night. My parents had gone out for the evening and I was just getting over some extremely harsh food poisoning I got in Taiwan. I was still eating soups and such. I got them both and absolutely loved them both. My Dad was mad because I didn't leave him a bite of ANY of it!

I love Jeff's Smith recipe for phyllo dough - it simply says "buy it"
