Corn Tofu (How to Make Soymilk Tofu) - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make a tofu using soy milk and gelatin. Adding creamed corn makes the tofu really aromatic and appetizing. It is something similar to drinking Korean corn tea ;)

This is NOT a dessert!
Maybe you can make this on April Fools' Day, though. hehe

Last weekend, my darling and I were invited to a cooking school at a restaurant in Tokyo.
We learned 3 dishes (blueberry cocktail, salt simmered pork and potatoes, and sudachi (citrus) soba. We tasted all the dishes at the end of the class. Then the chef also served us corn tofu, which was just my kind of food!!! I asked the chef what he used and he said he grated the corn in the mixer with soymilk and used gelatin to firm up. I was totally inspired by that recipe and used canned creamed corn instead and it worked out amazingly XD

So here is the recipe!!!

BTW, do you go to cooking school? Me? I never paid to learn how to cook. But I was invited to many free classes in the past and they all inspired me to cook something new!!! So, I think it is nice to attend a cooking class once in a while for a change but I just can't pay for such an experience because I already have too many ideas!!!

I hope my videos inspire you, too! hehe
