For the fifth year in a row, Elsa and I will present at the Good Food Commons as part of the Good Food Expo. And this year we will do a 30 minute presentation called Smokin’ – Cheese, Tofu, and Fire. Learn how to make tofu, nufu (a tofu style curd with peanuts replacing the soy beans), and fresh cheese. Then add another layer of flavor by smoking them. We will explore smoking using a smoker device at home or by adding smoky flavors. There will be tasty samples to compare and contrast the range of smoky flavors.
For the fourth year in a row, Elsa and I presented at the Good Food Commons as part of the Good Food Festival. And this year we did two 20 minute presentations. Presentation 1: “Easy Cheeses” was from 12-12:20pm. And Presentation 2: “Vegan Cheese Techniques” was from 1:30-1:50pm. Check out our Resources Page to find links to recipes and instructions to the tasty foods we demonstrated. The Good Food Festival was held at UIC Forum (725 W Roosevelt Rd, Chicago, IL).
Our two time slots were on the chalkboard schedule.
Yogurt cultured with buttermilk topped with strawberries and granola from our Easy Cheeses Presentation
Cashew “cheddar” from our Vegan Cheese Techniques Presentation
Almond “feta” on matza and drizzled with dill infused olive oil from our Vegan Cheese Techniques Presentation
We had a lot of fun presenting in the Good Food Commons as part of the Good Food Festival. Our presentation flew by! We had 20 minutes but with all the preparation that went into it, the presentation felt like 20 seconds. Our presentation was called “Making Cheese, Tofu, and Tofu Cheese”.
