As far back as I can recall, in Chinese homes, mums during confinement were “required” to keep themselves from all “wind & dampness”, and that demanded the best of the traditional goodness from Europe – the much venerated (or should I say, vaunted) D.O.M. Benedictine herbal liquor.
A small cupful after dinner was almost mandatory. All my female relatives who had children have experienced these “drinking sessions”. The strange thing is : why do they trust this Western brew so much – can anybody explain ?
Anyway, it is not cheap. But it does taste nice !
