The employees at Hodo Soy Beanery in Oakland, Calif. want to make tofu cool.
I’m happy to help them get the word out, especially since they make one bean curd item that I particularly enjoy – yuba, or tofu skin.
As part of that goal, they are opening up the organic tofu company for public tours and a tasting beginning on Dec. 16.
Keep in mind that the tours, scheduled for Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m., will be held once every two weeks. The cost is $10 per person.
The company will give tours to small groups and reservations are required. But you’ll be able to taste freshly-made tofu and learn about soybean selection.
If you’re interested, here’s my original post about Hodo Soy Beanery. If you take a tour, please let me know.

There is no place like home – especially when fresh, organic, artisan-quality bean curd awaits.
My parents grew up in Oakland, Calif. - and the city on Tuesday welcomed Hodo Soy Beanery to its new headquarters at 2923 Adeline St.
The company has been making tofu in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2004. Hodo is using the Cantonese pronunciation for good – or “ho” – and bean – or “do.”
The soy beanery dishes up the food to the public with two pithy pitches: “We want you to experience tofu in a new way” and “We want to make tofu cool.”
