GOOD FOOD KNOW-HOW
Silken-style tofu has a delicate, smooth texture but is firm enough to maintain its shape when cooked. Tofu has a mild taste when eaten on its own, but when mixed with other ingredients, it absorbs their flavours.
Yellow bean sauce is a sweet and savoury Chinese stir-fry sauce flavoured with garlic and sesame.
