    Isnt that a little sexist? My wife doesnt cook for me (but then she's veggie and Im not )

    As for the tofu - I just asked and the nicest tofu she had recently was some store bought that came in a sauce. There was sweet and sour and a couple of others so I think marinating or cooking in a strong sauce is the answer.

    The other alternative is to eat soy foods if you are health concious. They can make that taste like all sorts of things (so Im told) and so it doesnt all taste like rubbery nothing.

    I grew up in a house where if you were hungry you learned how to cook. I enjoy cooking. That way I get exactly what i want

    Same here.

    I was actually thinking of doing some cooking video tutorials.
    Just simple stuff that anyone can make.

    check the chinese/asian grocery nearest you Paul and look for fermented tofu

    also try frying it either deep fried in canola oil or pan fried in ev olive oil

    or you could try after marinating (try italian seasoning) grilling it

    Deep fry it and then when its fried nicely (so its not rock hard, just crunchy on the outside) dip it in some sweet chilli sauce.

    Or

    Batter it in tempura and dip it in chilli sauce.

    Or Get a vegaterian cook book, but evan better would be to learn how to cook traditional chinese food as this uses alot of soya produce and vegatables as much as it uses meat.

    Also Soya reduces colestoral so I dont think anyone should knock it.
    Well I don't have anything else planned for today, let's get drunk!

    Trader Joes is selling an awesome Tofu ice-cream sandwich. So... it's vanilla flavored tofu ice-cream wrapped in a soft cookie, but it doesn't taste like tofu at all.

    Talking Tofu Update

    For those who care I have an update

    I asked a friend who works in a restaurant and he told me to try pan frying it on high heat in a non-stick skillet. So last night I got some extra firm tofu (that made a big improvement in the texture) marinated it in spicy peanut sauce, and pan fried it with a bit of sesame oil. Man it was tasty. Not quite steak but it made a great sandwich. I'll be doing this again really soon.

    Thanks for all the ideas.
