We never thought much of tofu until chef Scott Drewno began making it from scratch at The Source last summer. Infused with spices and herbs, the typically flavorless soy-milk staple transforms into a silky smooth treat that even nonvegetarians will appreciate. Our favorite is the custardlike ma po tofu infused with toasted crushed Sichuan peppercorns and topped with braised, diced, and stir-fried pork belly with a chili sauce.
