Since LA no longer has a tofu festival, and I haven't heard of any other tofu festivals, I am substituting tofu festival for tofu tasting and factory tour. So here is #73
My old room mate sent me a message a few weeks ago asking if I wanted to go tofu tasting... did I? What a silly question, of course I did! So last week we headed up to Hodo Tofu in Oakland for a Tofu Tasting and factory tour.
The tasting was pretty cool, I think there was 7 or 8 different tofu's to taste. Some were firm, or extra firm, some were marinated, and there was yuba the skin, plus fresh soy milk. They are available at farmers market and I would highly recommend the yuba and the tofu nuggets.
The factory tour part was kinda lame. They whipped back a curtain that covered a window and that was the tour. You couldn't see the whole process. The only thing you could easily see was how the yuba was made. The owner did come up to the window and wave at Fiona.
