Grandma makes Mapo Tofu from Scratch-Old School

#1 Post by Dennis Atick » January 25th, 2020, 6:23 am

Apropos of nothing specific outside of CNY, I just found this little clip a joy to watch.
And I had never watched tofu being made. Outside with old-school tools no less!

Wow!

That was perfect!

Was she a jewel, or what! Just beautiful.
