Sesame Tofu: Who Knew?

with 2 comments

Who knew indeed. A lovely Sunday at the Temescal farmer’s market inspired more tofu-buying. That’s what’s in the upper right hand corner of the lock-n-lock: strips of tofu marinated in a wonderful asian sauce with sesame seeds mixed in. Sun dried tomato pesto next to that — from the Afghani food stall. Below that, a few wheat crackers. Next to the crackers, a very nice ham, rolled around sharp cheddar cheese. A carambar (french caramel candy, brought back from Paris by one of the Tiffin Twins who, until this year, went to a French-speaking school) and cantelope with grapes to round it out. A very international lunch, come to think of it. Asia, Afghanistan, France, California, and Wisconsin (for the cheddar).

Tiniest Tiffin likes to have a lot of things in his lunch. Trouble was, some of the pesto sloshed around in the lock-n-lock and he didn’t like that so much. I don’t like my food touching either, at least not when it’s Afghani pesto mixed up with my ham, so I can understand.

  1. Where do you get the lock-n-lock? Doug has been using the standard lunchables, and I’d like to replace those with real food.

  2. I get it at Koreana Plaza in Oakland. I’ll see if I can find the name of the guy who’s the north american sales rep — I emailed him once, a fan email, and he sent me back a very nice reply. (For you, though, dear Research Editor and Web Specialist, I will mail lock-n-lock boxes. The square kind with dividers are a favorite. They don’t leak and the food doesn’t get smushed and the little compartments really appeal to a person’s love of food that doesn’t touch.
