Soya milk and beer, the perfect combination
I have always loved the skin on boiled milk. I remember praying as a child that my mum would slightly overboil the milk and I would get a thick leathery skin on my hot chocolate. It was a bit like eating the burned bits at the side of the macaroni cheese dish.
Anyway, I have found the ultimate drinking food. It is called "yuba" and for someone who loves milk skin it is God's own cuisine. Basically, you put a load of Soya Milk (must not be preboiled, so most of the stuff in the West will not work; although you could make you own milk by soaking soya beans). You heat it up in a fondue type thing at the table. A thin film of what is basically the most delicate and soft tofu in the world develops and you just dive in with your chopsticks and eat it.
The evenings are getting cold here and it was a warming and sociable dish to have with a beer. The particular beer in question was this wonderfully simply named brand:
The name is simply: "This is the beer".
