Who loves tofu? I DO! I want tofu every day, every way, just like I want my men. I mean.
I have no idea who I am or why the tofu cube in the video looks so evil, but the first annual Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival is on Saturday, June 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in San Francisco’s Japantown Peace Plaza. It’s supposed to be a fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation, a nonprofit benefiting the Japanese-American community, but entry is free.
Supreme yumminess will be present in the form of booths for Tofu Yu, JapaCurry, San Jose Tofu, and many other vendors and sponsors. There will also be a raffle ($1,000 grand prize!), educational materials on soy (who cares—it’s delicious), live performances from hula to rapping, and free samples (NOW YOU’RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE).
If you want to be one of the audience judges for the Tofu Dessert Competition, listen up: space is limited to the first 30 people who show up, and it costs $25. The desserts must be at least 50 percent tofu, but there’s no stipulation that they be vegan, so take your chances if you dare! Or have an omni friend do it and sneak you bites of the vegan ones! CAN I GET A “HELL YEAH”?!
