Co-op Lunch (Tofu)

with one comment

“Like the origins of cheese and butter, the exact origin of tofu production may never be known or proven.” -Wikipedia


O Nameless Tofu Originator

you are more immortal than any of us are going to be.

Were you a prehistorical genius, experimenting rigorously over many years?

(different combinations of bean curd, salt, etcetera).

Or was it blind luck?

like the Chinese emperor who was boiling water outside, only to have a leaf fall in it

and invent tea. Perhaps I should stay home all day

mixing, stirring.
