I run a monthly supper club called The Secret Garden Club with a gardener colleague called Ms Zia Mays. We’ve done several smoking workshops to teach people how to smoke. It’s seen as quite a macho skill, but it isn’t at all. Girls can smoke! We’ve come a long way baby. There are three main types of smoking: cold, hot and tea smoked. The most complicated is cold smoking, which is how smoked salmon is created. Hot smoking is much quicker than cold; but the easiest method of all is tea smoking, as it can be done on a normal kitchen hob with an old saucepan, a steamer basket and a lid. The tea-smoking mixture comprises loose leaf tea, raw long-grain rice and brown sugar. This hot-smoked recipe comes from Zia and it transforms tofu into a dark brown, savoury-sweet tasty food.
