People have been super curious about how our fresh tofu is made and we've been hosting a slew of really interesting and fun people.
Here's a partial rundown of some of some of the folks that have visited along with some pictures with Minh Tsai, the founder and Tofu Master at Hodo.
Picture above: Minh with Nicolette Hahn Niman, environmental activist, cattle rancher, and author of "Righteous Porkchop: Finding Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms" (www.righteousporkchop.com), her mom and son. Nicolette "has been published in the New York Times and is a regular speaker at national and regional environmental conferences and food events. A former attorney, she is now married to the founder of the Niman Ranch, a collective of traditional farms and ranches."
Picture above: Minh with Joel Riddell, executive producer of KGO AM "Dining Around with Gene Burns" (www.diningaround.com), and Novella Carpenter, author of "Farm City: an Education of an Urban Farmer" (www.novellacarpenter.com). Novella raises chickens, goats, bees and essentially has a full blown farm near downtown Oakland.
