We are so excited to announce that Rau Om will be at the Sunnyvale Farmers’ Market every Saturday from 9am to 1pm, starting from this Saturday November 5th. Come to downtown Sunnyvale (Murphy Avenue @ Washington) to visit us for some delicious samples and take these yummy goodies home:
Intensely flavorful, decadently rich and creamy miso-cured tofu. Enjoy it straight or as a spread, and don’t forget to pair it with sake or wine.
We mentioned that tofu misozuke was known in Japan since at least the 18th century. That is in reference to an entry for it we found during our research on tofu misozuke. The entry was found in the book 豆腐百珍 / Tofu Hyakuchin / 100 Rare Tofu by 何必醇 / Ka Hitsujun, published in 1782. The book was apparently such a hit it spawned a sequel the following year. The entry for tofu misozuke is highlighted in the scanned image below:
Many thanks to our friend Chieh-Ting for translating the document into modern Japanese and then to English for us!
Nem chua (beef and lamb varieties):
A symphony of flavors and textures wrapped in banana leaves: tartness, sweetness, a range of spiciness, crunchy & chewy, all at once. Get your beer ready!
See you on Saturdays! If you can’t come to visit us in person, these goodies are also available online in our online store.
