Tofu has been a dietary mainstay in Asia for hundreds of years, but has only recently become commonplace in the west. While tofu is now easy to find, recipes using it in an authentic context have not been, until now! The Tao of Tofu, by Chef Robert Church, contains over 100 delicious Asian tofu recipes.
