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.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g firm tofu, drained and sliced around 4–5 mm thick

For the marinade:

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons dijon mustard

Method

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a shallow dish. Slide the tofu slices in, cover and marinate in the fridge for 4 hours or more.
  2. Get the hot smoker ready, then lift the tofu pieces onto a piece of foil on the rack and hot smoke for 30 minutes. Some find the smoky flavour of the tofu quite strong, so you can experiment by smoking for just 15 minutes, say, and then checking whether the flavour is right for you.
