Derry Simonds writes: This recipe was provided by the woman assistant at a Chinatown butchery where both honeycomb and book tripe were displayed. She said that the former was the tripe to be used for this recipe and that the delicate leaves of the latter, needing only ten minutes cooking, were ideal for Chinese tripe salad. (Never having seen book tripe on sale before, I was eager to try it and used it successfully in the Italian tripe salad, click HERE for Salad recipe.)
