Recipe of the Day

In just about every country on earth there are places dedicated to eating and drinking, generally referred to as pubs. In Japan these places are called Izakaya. With menus ranging from sushi to yakitori (skewers) and everything in between, these establishments offer a place to socialize and enjoy good food. Inspired by this thought of an Asian pub, today's recipe comes from the book Izakaya by Mark Robinson. It is chilled tofu, a deceptively easy recipe, with loads of flavor. Give this recipe a try then jump over and snag a copy of this book for more recipes, you won't be disappointed.
