How many times have you heard someone say, Tofu is only for vegetarians? Many times Then it's time to expand your culinary horizons while, at the same time, reaping the nutritional benefits of tofu. Author Frances Boyte and her new book, Tofu Gourmet Cuisine, will take you for a savory journey... With more than 30 years of experience as a clinical dietician, Frances Boyte knows that tofu is a super-nutritious food for everyone who is looking to reach his or her optimal health. Frances Boyte's approach closely links healthy eating to the pleasures of eating. One serving of tofu (100g) has the same calcium content as two glasses of milk and offers two to three times more iron than one serving of beef. It also contains 15g of high quality protein and is cholesterol-free. Plus, tofu is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Your metabolism will reward you for including tofu in your diet, with a higher energy level and healthier appearance. Frances Boyte asked five respected chefs to create gourmet recipes mixing tofu with meat, fish and even foie gras for those with a flair for cooking and a health-conscious attitude. Those talented chefs are: Marie-Chantal Lepage who was named Canadian National Chef of the Year in 2000, making her the first woman to ever receive this honor; Eric Boutin, chef at the prestigious Laurie Raphael in Quebec City; Sebastien Leblond, chef at the well-renowned Le Maizerets in Quebec City; Benoit Paquet, chef and teacher at Ciat's Quebec cooking school and Jose Trottier, chef and teacher at Montreal's Calixa-Lavallee cooking school.
