Every Valentine’s Day I make my pink vodka Lobster Bisque. Being native New EnglanderS, the whole family loves it. It’s quick and easy and warms the heart. I rarely use exact measurements and season mostly by taste. Vodka is optional (can use wine instead) but the staples are tomato paste, heavy cream and of course....lobstah!! Chili power adds a nice heat. It’s the kind of recipe you can improvise with each time you make it...enjoy!
Nigari Tofu is tofu that has been made from soy milk curdled with brine (Nigari.)
The brine is actually magnesium chloride, a byproduct of extracting salt from seawater.
Most other tofu made now uses Calcium sulfate because it is less demanding.
But Nigari tofu is much healthier and with a slightly natural taste!
It's also specialty tofu in Taiwan.
In the late eighties, I lived in Peru for 4 years and I had the most idyllic and simple kitchen there, where I fermented my veggies. I have tried to reproduce this kitchen based on my memories.. I think the walls were a little less neatly painted, but memories can adapt over the years.... ;-)
I created this with some of my Vietnamese students in mind. Upon critiquing it for me they were very adamant in stating that since it has shrimp, it is disqualified as authentic pho, but they had only accolades for the design. I've made this recipe for my partner and myself several times now, and we both absolutely love it.
This is a classic dish for many Cantonese families. You rarely see this dish at any Chinese restaurants but it is a dish that many Cantonese families cook at at home using their own variation. This dish is like a warm big hug on a cold Winter's day for me. It not only warms the cold bones, but it also warms the soul. I hope you enjoy my variation of this classic.

This is a recipe my grandpa uses every time he drives up from Georgia to visit us! Although this stew is meant to be a fixin', it's great as a meal too!
