Hundred Delicacies of Tofu. (1) 

I found a book called “Hundred Delicacies of Tofu” 豆腐百珍 which was originally published in 1782 in Japan.

The book introduces various ways of tofu dish and it became very popular among people then. Since tofu is one of my fav Japanese ingredients… I decided to try the recipe one by one from the book even though I am not sure how long it will take to complete 100 dishes !

Today is the kick off day and the first dish is grilled tofu and miso paste. Miso paste is made by miso and mirin (Japanese sweet wine) half and half and warm it up by low heat. Fried tofu on frying pan and add a little shoyu. Then put some miso and grill both side and enjoy. Very simple but we can try various miso (rice malt, barely malt, soybean malt miso etc) and taste the difference.

      Thanks for your comment ! Yes that’s one of my favorite book now. Tofu is really simple and seasonings were limited when the book was published … but still can enjoy to imagine how people cook and enjoy the simple ingredients. My book is re-published in recent years (I guess originals are in the library , museums or archives) but look forward to try it one by one ! Hope you will enjoy my tofu journey together! 😋

  2. Oh what fun! I love tofu too, so I look forward to this journey!
