Look Who's Visiting Hodo... Part III

For us at Hodo Soy Beanery, it has been very rewarding to see the genuine enthusiasm and curiosity that people have had about artisan tofu making. Our tours have been booked solid since last year and apparently our facility and how we make tofu makes for pretty good TV. We've had several TV crews come through including CBS 5- Eye on the Bay.

The above is a picture of Hodo Founder, Minh Tsai and Liam Mayclem, host of "Eye on the Bay," CBS 5. Liam was a lot of fun and super easy going. We wanted to hire him to make tofu.

In this photo, the fellas are planning out the next shot...

Ready, set, action!

If you're interested in checking out the Hodo Soy Beanery segment on "Eye on the Bay," go to and search for the "Bay Area Tours" episode, February 9, 2010. Happy Viewing!
