I recently read Zuo Zhuang’s "A Handful of Salt". The author repeatedly mentioned in the book that a good chef should not just blindly pursue the frightening taste and style, but should strive to make every ingredient highlight the original taste of the food, so some When I saw a lot of exaggerated molecular cuisine and Fusion dishes, it would be better to look through the various recipes written by the ancestors. In the era when "not eating from time to time, harmony between man and nature", food tends to be closer to its original appearance. And taste. The ancient method of fried tofu I will introduce today is from the book "The Secret of Food Constitution" compiled by Zhu Yizun. The method is not complicated and the ingredients are also readily available, but it has an unexpected good taste. It can be described as simple and beautiful.
