Handmade GANMODOKI (Fried tofu ball mixed with vegetables)
& Deep-fried tofu pizza

Do you like tofu? Fresh tofu as Hiyayakko is delicious, because tofu itself has wonderful taste. Especially vegetarians' cooking using much tofu has been developed in Kyoto because there are many temples here.
At class, we cook GANMODOKI, one of tofu dishes. Though we can buy cooked Ganmodoki from supermarkets and simmered it at home. We are impressed at the delicious taste of hot handmade Ganmodoki. We might cook it more easily than we expected.
