Last year we grew some heirloom soybeans at DRYK Nørrebro, the roof top urban garden in our neighborhood. We wanted to grow seeds that could tell a story and be shared from year to year. Growing these soy beans, which even though they came from a seed […]
This is the first installment of what will be an irregular series of reflections on the waste stream we find flowing all around us. More than any other place we have lived, there is an enormous percentage of the trash that other people in our neighborhood throw out that consists of damaged and perfectly usable […]
We really miss having a garden of our own and sometimes we raise potato starts in our apartment for no other reason than that they make us happy and keeps our intimate knowledge of how to do this close at hand.
I was cleaning out some old pots we had in […]

Today’s tofu pressing was with kiwi and small red peppers. I also embedded a large chunk of kiwi in the center of the tofu. We cooked the tofu in a sweet and sour sauce with even more kiwi.
This week’s tofu pressing includes dandelion greens from the neighborhood, Lichtenberg, we are staying in here in Berlin, and ginger. We have been looking for ways to get a better sense of where we are in relation to the local ecology and how people use their city spaces. Gathering dandelions is a good […]
Here is this weekend’s experiment with tofu. We used both lime and lemon juice as the coagulant to make the soy milk curdle.
We are very happy that spring is upon us and couldn’t resist using a couple of flower pots to both shape and press the tofu. First we put […]
It’s March and spring is slowly coming around. The start of spring means preparing seedlings for the coming growing season. We may have an outdoor garden this year (crossing our fingers) and in the hopes of that we are starting seeds in our kitchen window.
We always have a surplus of 1 liter […]
Here is our latest experiment with pressing our own tofu. We made a paste of crushed peanuts, soy sauce and shredded basil leaves. The paste is in four layers in the tofu. We spread the first layer in the press, put in some curd, followed by another layer of paste, then more curd, […]
