I just registered myself for a class on how to make your own perfect tofu from scratch. This is my first formal cooking class ever and my heart is exploding with enthusiasm! The class is taught by the amazing Peter Berley, natural foods advocate and former executive chef of Angelica Kitchen! After we learn how to whip soybeans into shape, we'll make these recipes: Fresh Tofu in Dashi with Tempura Vegetables • Tostadas with Spicy Hashed Bean Curd and Pepitas • Spinach Mushroom Quiche • Tofu Steaks with Black Beans and Mango Salsa • Crispy Pressed Tofu with Garlic and Mint • Baked Tofu in Lemon, White Wine Sauce • Lemon Tofu Cheesecake "Angelica Kitchen Style".
Are you drooling at the computer yet? I'll be sure to share some tips with all of you, but in the meantime, grab a block of white potential and try your hand at Isa's Tofu Benny (above), Fire Escape Baked Tofu Sandwich, PPK's Pumpkin Cheesecake, or a Baked Tofu Melt.
