Item description for The Best of Tofu by Junko Takagi...

The beautifully illustrated Best of Tofu presents tofu at its finest. Besides using tofu to achieve the subtle flavors of Japan, it provides variety of easy-to-follow inventive recipes from an emerging new generation of young chefs from Tokyo who are using tofu to reinvent world cuisine, including: twenty-five variations of chilled tofu and twenty-four entrees; simple recipes that go well with drinks; hot-pot dishes; recipes for preserving tofu; and delicious, light desserts. This book also introduces creative uses for okara, a by-product that remains when soymilk is pressed out from soybeans, which is widely used in Japan.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Best of Tofu?

Best Ever Tofu Cookbook!!  Mar 24, 2008
This is the best tofu cookbook I have ever seen. My daughter is vegetarian and we found many new recipes that are truly different like Tofu Salad, Creamy Stew with Miso, and Coconut Ice. Helpful for her was all of the nutritional information related to tofu in general. Also useful is the information on the different types of tofu and their characteristics for cooking. Many of the recipes that do include meat or fish (as is typical in Asia) can easily be modified to be meatless. Lot's of pictures and simple easy to follow instructions. If tofu is a substantial part of your diet you should have this cookbook!
awesome book  Oct 13, 2005
I don't often review books here on this site, but this cookbook was so good I feel I should pass this info on.

As a vegetarian I eat tofu every day and know a few ways to prepare it, but this book had ideas I had never thought of. Also, it is beautifully photographed and the recipes are well-presented.

This is the best tofu cookbook I've seen - the curry recipe is particularly good :)
Tofu with PORK... Tofu with BEEF...  Jun 12, 2005
Is it me? Or does one generally assume - unless it states otherwise - that a tofu cookbook will be vegetarian? Sorry, but I'm returning this one.
