The New American Cuisine

Tofu has long been at the fringes of acceptability as a food in America. The America palate just wasn't ready to completely embrace it--that is, until now. With a clear-cut mandate by the American public for less fat-saturated foods, America's love affair with tofu has just begun. Those cute little tubs of white bean curd can now be found in almost every major supermarket chain in the United States along with tofu-based ice cream, tofu burger mix, tofu franks, and tofu pizza.

Here, then, is the definitive book for people who want to use tofu in their everyday lives, but just don't know how. The Tofu Book: The New American Cuisine provides all the essential information you need to make tofu part of your balanced diet. Its highly illustrated text covers tofu's rich and celebrated past, explains why tofu is good for you, tells you how you to shop for and store tofu, and even how to make it at home. It also provides a wide range of recipes, including hundreds of delicious and nutritious ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Written by John Paino, founder and president of Nasoya Foods, and Lisa Messinger, health columnist and author, The Tofu Book is the only guide you and your family will need to make that all important move to the wonderful world of tofu.
