Soy Bean Stories
I'd been buying tofu from this guy for a while now. Heck, I'd even written about it in The Coast. But I never really thought about the work that went into it. Or who else ate his tofu.
But there was one person in particular who ate a lot of that tofu. His daughter, Pay Chen. Pay wrote a piece for Munchies, Vice's sister site. Entitled, "My Dad's Half-Baked Plan To Introduce Tofu to Atlantic Canada," , Pay talks about growing up in a household where tofu was not only a meal, but a topic of discussion.
Inspired, I contacted Pay to see if I could interview her to talk a little more about her parents, her relationship with tofu, and the relationships that people have forged with her Dad because of his tofu.
Update: On July 12th, CBC New Brunswick posted about the story on their website, giving the story a little extra traction. Many thanks to them.
