Papa Tofu


My zine, Papa Tofu, is almost complete! It's a 77 page compilation of recipes from pakupaku, Herbivore Magazine and Cakemaker, with a few extras thrown in, including an updated and complete section on Ethiopian dishes.



I should finish the artwork today or tomorrow!

  2. hey celine!
    the zine will be ready for the New Orleans Book Fair on November 10th, then after that I'll post details. I still have to go to Kinkos and figure out how much they'll cost to print and ship...

  4. Awesome!! I love it already :)

    I have been inspired by your Ethiopian food pics to stop being such a wanker about cooking lately, and I ate several healthy meals that I made over the weekend thanks to your inspiration.
    I wish I were coming down to New Orleans some time soon, but I don't think I will be, so I'll wait for the announcement that I can order one via mail.

    Also, I re-upped by latent Herbivore subscription now that I know you're the food editor!! That is awesome.

  8. Yay Kittee! I can tell you that if you have 500 copies to make (and with that big of a zine, you obviously will), they will do it in the big machine for you and it's a bit cheaper, 13 cents for a double sided copy instead of 16 cents. Those 3 cents really add up, though.

    For me to ship my zine in the US is 58 cents, yours will probably be more because it's bigger. Do you have a food scale? Put your template and an envelope on there and then go to usps.com and calculate the postage. As long as it's less than 3 1/2 ounces, it counts as a letter and will cost 75 cents or less to send. They make stamps for higher postage, and it's much easier/time efficient if you just stamp them yourself at home, and the postal workers will like you more.

    Also, if you don't have a long arm stapler you can get one on amazon for $8 plus shipping, and they're usually $50 or more. Trust me, you want one. Folding staples by hand hurts!

    Whew! That was a lot.

  14. Awesome, I'll be psyched to buy your zine.

    One of my fav recipes from Papaku is the Seward Rocks. Did they make it in there?

    I've tried some Ethiopian foods at restaurants and have not been wowed. I'll going to give some of your recipes a go. Injera is always my favorite part.
