Video: Making (and Messing up) Homemade Tofu


We shared some our favorite moments from our culinary tour of China here on Serious Eats a couple months back. One of the biggest takeaways was how good fresh tofu can be; inspired by the grassy flavors and silken texture, we embarked on making our own. Prior to the video, I made tofu 3 times, only to completely mess it up during the filming process. In true Perennial Plate style, we give you the making of tofu (warts and all). Please try this at home; you can get the full recipe here.
