What: Healthy Bites Tofu Sampling and Station
When: Wednesday, February 8, 5-8pm
Where: Newcomb, Runk, O'Hill
Did you know that UVa Dining gets virtually all of its tofu from a local processor (and intentional living community), Twin Oaks, in nearby Louisa, Virginia? That's right: the tofu you see daily at the salad bar or in any number of dishes in the dining halls - even the tofu available at Burrito Theory in the Pav - is all locally manufactured. It's also certified organic!
All three residential dining rooms will be sampling Twin Oaks herbed tofu and serving a tofu-based entree at their Vegetarian station tomorrow evening. O'Hill promises to be a special treat as representatives from Twin Oaks will be on hand to help with the sampling and answer any questions you might have about tofu.
To whet your appetite, here's a list of what each chef plans to serve:
Newcomb -- Pineapple Soy Glazed Tofu with Lo Mein Noodles at the Vegetarian Station
Runk -- Teryaki Tofu Slider with Sweet Potato Chips at the Veggie Fair StationO'Hill -- Sesame Tofu Salad with Cucumber in a Mango Sauce at the Vegan and Vegetarian Station
See you tomorrow!
