I have heard of wine tastings, cheese tastings and chocolate tastings but never tofu tastings. Well yesterday morning I found myself at such a thing. While out in Nikko, we visited the Taishi Food company. At Taishi they crank out about 170,000 packs of tofu per day. That may seem like a boat load of tofu but not when you consider how much of the stuff the Japanese consume each day.

We had silk tofu and cotton tofu and sesame tofu and tofu we made ourselves and tofu on a stick and tofu skins (my favorite) and a tofu doughnut and even tofu cheesecake. I kept wondering if you can get a hangover from tofu. The good news is you can't.
