Angela Chang, a bilingual chef, tofu expert, and cookbook author, has completed her new book “Delicious Tofu: Recipes and Lore from the Land of Tofu for Meat Lovers and Vegetarians”: a well-researched cookbook featuring the history and culture surrounding tofu, how to successfully prepare tofu, and how to create enticing tofu dishes.
Author Chang describes her drive to create a tofu cookbook: “Disturbed by the fact that tofu was generally considered to be no more than a diet supplement for the health-conscious in the West, I was eager to find ways to improve the image of tofu and show how it could also be a delicious, highly sought-after comfort and gourmet food as it is for Asians. While promoting my two previously published cookbooks…I had close contact with numerous friends and readers who enthusiastically provided me with their insights and observations [on the lack of knowledge concerning tofu and its use in America].”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Angela Chang’s appetizing tofu cookbook offers a delectable journey into making tofu a tasty part of any menu for beginner and expert chefs alike.
Tofu chef Angela Chang was born in China and raised in Taiwan, where tofu is inseparable from the culinary landscape. In “Delicious Tofu,” she offers an unprecedented mixture of authentic information with engaging stories about tofu from Chinese history, legends, and culture for reading pleasure. Chang introduces a wide range of cooking methods plus traditional and creative Western-inspired dishes, bringing tofu out of obscurity and into the everyday household menu.
