Bill Lorenzen and Kevin GallantSarah Hardy and her family run a certified organic tofu shop in Alberton.

"None of us liked, or knew how to use tofu before we bought this company 2½ years ago," the Hardy family wrote in their submission to the Recipe Thief. "Who was going to buy our product if we didn't eat tofu ourselves? This is one recipe that even the tofu timid like."
