Through exquisite and detailed illustrations, this beautiful book helps our young readers explore where our food comes from, and the hard work involved in the preparation process!
Tofu is a very common food in our daily lives, and is a popular food among children and adults alike due its versatility. But do you know how tofu is made?
The owner of a tofu shop wakes early every morning, wash the soybeans that he left soaking overnight, and then places them in a machine to crush them to make soy milk and okara (豆渣).
Once the soy milk solidifies, it becomes the tofu that we know. But tofu comes in many different forms, like fried tofu, firm tofu, silken tofu, etc...
Based on what the customer needs, the owner will add different ingredients, or use different methods to make the tofu. So something as seemingly simple as tofu can require many complicated steps to make.
Like many other things in life that we take for granted, we don't really consider its source or production process. This is a great book to help our little ones develop a curiosity for things we consume, and to learn to appreciate all the ordinary things we see.
