Have you ever thought of using soy sauce and fermented bean curd to make a tasty dessert?
This unique combination was introduced by Hugo Tsui, co-founder of “Fuzizoue” (金譽手藝腐乳) — a famous dessert shop in Hong Kong.
In this unique recipe, traditional Chinese condiments are turned into a delectable parfait.
“These two desserts: ‘fermented bean curd parfait’ and ‘soy sauce parfait,’ are a fusion of Chinese and French cuisine,” Tsui said.
According to him, these two ingredients bring a mellow and salty soybean flavor to the parfait.
However, getting the proportions of the dessert just right took Tsui quite a while.
“I was inspired by my grandmother; during my childhood, she encouraged me to add sugar on fermented bean curd,” Tsui explained.
“When I grew up, I found that the sugar actually brings out the flavor of soybean in the curd.”
