Sprouts and Stuff
I came across a book this weekend entitled, L.A.'s Son (or something like that). It was about the experience of a Korean-American with immigrant parents who exposed him to the gastronomic varieties of Korean food while raising him on the west coast. The book was interesting for a variety of reasons but I think the main one (for me) is that one can make their own tofu. This concept hit me like a ton of bricks. Tofu had played a large part in my life ever since my father became a vegetarian but I never thought you could make your own. To start, it is indicated that one starts grinding soybeans with a mortar and pestle. The rest of the recipe was somewhat lost on me but you can believe that when I went to the grocery store tonight, soybeans were the first thing I picked up.
