Asian Tofu: Discover the Best, Make Your Own, and Cook It at Home

Andrea Nguyen. Ten Speed, $30 (240p) ISBN 978-1-60774-025-4
The focus of this volume is specific but very deep. Nguyen (Into the Vietnamese Kitchen) knows her tofu, and she shares its history, a comprehensive guide to its variations, and a homemade tofu tutorial. And for cooks who don’t aspire to DIY bean curd, this single-subject book offers 75 surprisingly diverse recipes featuring tofu as a star ingredient. Flavor-packed entries include spiced tofu and vegetable fritters; soft tofu and seafood hot pot; tofu and vegetables in coconut milk; and spicy lemongrass tofu salad. Just because it’s all about tofu doesn’t mean it’s vegetarian; while there are certainly meatless and vegan options, the tofu steak burgers, for example, are topped with bacon. Tofu-centric desserts, such as cashew and cardamom fudge and tofu tiramisu are surprisingly tempting. Fans of Asian flavors who want to dig into a versatile ingredient will appreciate Nguyen’s thorough effort. (Feb.)
