You're Invited to a 5 Course Dinner by Hodo Founder, Minh Tsai!

18 Reasons, the non-profit community space funded by Bi-Rite Market and Bi-Rite Creamery is featuring Minh Tsai and Hodo Soy Beanery at its "Producer dinner" on Friday, July 9th at 7pm.

Here's your chance to experience a 5 course meal prepared by Minh featuring his freshly made tofu and yuba. Here's one dish to expect:

Nama Yuba "Sashimi" with Uni
Silky folds of fresh, handmade yuba topped with sea urchin and toasted nori

Hodo Soy Beanery's Nama Yuba is made from fresh, organic, non-gmo soy milk. The delicate folds of yuba resemble in appearance and texture, the thinnest sheets of freshly-made pappardelle pasta with a silky, tender quality unlike anything else you've ever tasted. It's the perfect accompaniment to the rich, creamy ocean-fresh uni.

John Scharffenberger joins Hodo!

We are really excited to have John Scharffenberger join Hodo Soy Beanery as our CEO!

Like just about every other employee, he first discovered Hodo at his local farmer's market. While he admittedly was not a huge fan of tofu, he was wowed by his first taste of Hodo's Tofu and it made a lasting impression. Hodo's freshly made tofu, soy milk, and yuba was completely different from what he associated with store bought, shelf stable soy products.

As John got to know more about Hodo Soy Beanery, including Minh Tsai, founder and tofu master, and John Notz, CFO, he took a more active interest and became an investor and director in 2008. John Scharffenberger's role will be to help grow Hodo's sales and distribution network while at the same time, maintaining its commitment to quality and stellar customer service.
