While I was visiting my parent’s home, I wanted to make Morimoto’s Tofu Cheesecake for my family. So I couldn’t find the agar product that I used when making the dessert here in Boston –
So I went and bought the following at Mitsuwa, Edgewater (the old standby I used in making the Almond Tofu dessert) –
As it would turn out, using the prior agar product with the amount specified in the Morimoto Tofu Cheesecake recipe resulted in a collapsed cake and all the ‘tofu cheesecake filling’ spilling out all over the kitchen counter. I had to remake the cake using TWICE the amount of that agar powder in order for the recipe to work.
It was the least I could do for myself and my readers so that no one else would have to go through the mess I had to clean up. Hopefully, this would make for a good new year cooking tastingmenu dinner courses.
Happy new years everyone!
