Minh Tsai, Hodo Soy, featuring Green Gulch Farm

Saturday, July 22, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:15am

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and two of our market sellers.

As a child in Vietnam, Minh Tsai took morning strolls with his grandpa to the neighborhood tofu shack. The freshness and artisan-quality of the soymilk, tofu and yuba of his childhood eluded Minh for many years and ultimately led Minh to leave a finance career to found Hodo Soy in 2004. Hodo now supplies tofu to Chipotle nationwide, sweetgreen, and notable Bay Area restaurants including Slanted Door, State Bird Provisions, The Progress, SHED Cafe at Healdsburg Shed, and Mister Jiu’s. Hodo sources US-grown, organic, non-GMO soybeans from farmers’ cooperatives. All products are certified organic, vegan, preservative-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO.

Green Gulch Farm is a residential Buddhist practice place also known as Green Dragon Zen Temple. GGF was established by the San Francisco Zen Center in 1972 as a rural retreat center and organic farm. In 2015, GGF completed the second phase of a major creek restoration that will hopefully bring Coho salmon and Steelhead trout to spawn in the riparian zone adjacent to the vegetable fields.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
