mai mangiato il tofu! il piatto è invitante però! un abbraccio

Ha un sapore molto blando, Lucia, e quindi di solito e' cotto con altri ingredienti oppure servito freddo con delle salsine in cui intingerlo. L'ho sempre mangiato ma non l'avevo mai cucinato. Il risultato mi ha convinta.


Aside from Italian, of course, Chinese cuisine might be my very favorite. (The real stuff, of course, not the Americanized version.) And I love the intense, warming flavor of a red-cooked dish. But up to now I've only tried meat-based red-cooked dishes. This vegetarian version looks very nice, though, and well worth a try. I have all the ingredients already, as I keep a fairly well stocked Chinese pantry, so I'm definitely going to give this a go this week.

I didn't realize you were a fan of Chinese cuisine. Do you know the cookbook Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees? I had the pleasure of meeting Kian at the event I mention in the post and of eating several dishes he prepared, including a salad of Chrysanthemum greens.


No, I should check it out. I do follow Kian's blog but haven't bought the book. I'm sure it's fantastic.
