Broken Cuisine: Chinese Tofu, Western Cooking, and a Hope to Save Our Planet Cookbook
American meat-based cuisine is broken. It’s leading to antibiotic-resistant superbugs, runaway climate change, and widespread animal cruelty.
Tofu is one of the healthiest proteins we have. No other plant-based proteins are as versatile as Chinese tofu. Nor are there many that can match its nutrition, sustainability, and affordability.

Our meat-based diets are leading to antibiotic-resistant superbugs, runaway climate change, and widespread animal cruelty. Yet, our plant-based alternatives aren’t appealing enough. This is our Broken Cuisine. I believe we must fix it.
And we can. By studying how our favorite foods were invented and popularized, we ourselves can create new, better ones. The first step? Fresh tools.
Broken Cuisine introduces Western cooks to five potential building blocks. They taste like cheese, fish cakes, phyllo pastry, bread, and more. They are healthy, sustainable, affordable, and delicious. And they all happen to be tofu – but not the jiggly, white cubes we’re all familiar with.
Inside, you’ll learn how tofu is made, how varieties differ, and what makes them shine. You’ll get practice finding and buying these tofus, which is easier than you might think (!), and you’ll become adept at cooking them, combining our well-tested recipes with your own inspiration.
Alright, that’s enough talk! We’ll be waiting for you in the kitchen.
