In the best way possible!
wintergreens' fresh, organic, bulk tofu supplier is 82 year old Sam Weinreb of Local Tofu in Nyack. He was born in Brooklyn, and has had nine lives, as a soldier, an actor, a dancer, and a printmaker. After he was fired from Parsons for organizing a faculty union, he left the city and started making tofu in 1980.
Back in my Brooklyn days, he used to deliver buckets of tofu in his hatchback to the neighborhood vegetarian restaurant. He personally delivered all up and down the Hudson Valley and all over the city.
Sam's tofu is my favorite of all I've tasted. Some people just want their tofu to be a carrier of other flavors, but I love its flavor, and the beanier the better. This tofu tastes great plain and cold, with nothing on it.
You can learn to make tofu from Sam at this years' NY Green Fest in Alfred, where he'll be giving his "Zen and the Art of Tofu Making" workshop. Or, you can hear him read his poetry for Poets Against the War, at the Nyack Center monthly.
