Full Description
Michael Recchiuti teams up with Minh Tsai, founder and tofu master of Hodo Soy Beanery, for a soy and chocolate tasting event. Join them as they lead you through an exploration of the creation of artisan tofu and chocolate, and the many intriguing and surprising flavor pairings these two versatile ingredients bring to the table. You'll observe "how tofu is made" through a series of deconstructed tastings, tour Recchiuti's production kitchen in a private tour, and taste some unique sweet and savory creations concocted just for the event
