Rau Om’s Tofu Misozuke at Rainbow Grocery

We’re very glad to announce that starting this weekend Rainbow Grocery will be stocking our tofu misozuke in the cheese section.

 

To kick off our presence in San Francisco, we will be hosting a tasting of tofu misozuke this Saturday and Sunday.

Location: Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom Street @ 13th Street)

Date: Saturday February 11th and Sunday February 12th

Time: 3pm – 7pm

 

You are cordially invited to experience for yourself this unique and rare delicacy from ancient Japan, now made right here in the Bay Area. You will see for yourself why Oanh & Dang were inspired to spend the next 3 years researching recipes after their first taste of tofu misozuke, and why Rau Om’s tofu misozuke has been earning rave reviews from customers and journalists, chefs, foodies, omnivores, cheese lovers and vegans alike.

Rau Om learns to wrap bánh chưng: A video

Instead of bánh tét, people from Northern Vietnam wrap bánh chưng for Tết. This past Christmas, we learned to make bánh chưng from Grandma. For Tết in Houston, we demonstrated that the lesson (mostly) stuck.

Rau Om learns to wrap bánh tét : A video

That’s right, folks, Rau Om enters the cutting edge world of moving pictures with a short kinematographic post to Youtube.

The days before Tết are a frenzy of food preparations, including wrapping and cooking bánh tét if one’s from Southern Vietnam. This past Tết season, we went home and learned from Mom a more efficient way to wrap than what was previously described in our previous bánh tét post.

The music included in the video is “Improvisations in the Spring Mode” by our music teacher, the amazing master musician Nguyễn Vĩnh Bảo.
