MAX’S TOFU

I’m always on the lookout for a good tofu dish. This one is from Max, an old friend of ours. He, like I, is a fan of tofu, and this is his go-to recipe. What’s interesting about it is that it calls for nutritional yeast.… Read more...

It had to happen. It just had to happen, and it wasn’t even on my radar—until a friend informed me about it. There’s a wine from Washington State called “Kung Fu Girl.” That’s right: Kung Fu Girl. And I am doubly dumbfounded about this since I am into fine wines (and not so fine wines) and of course, Kung Fu which (as I’ve mentioned on this blog ad nauseum) I’ve practiced for 35+years.
