Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food!--SOLD OUT

Hello! I'm so proud to announce my newest cooklet, Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food, is complete! Please start knitting booties, because this is the closest I'm gonna come to having a biological baby.


This 86 page recipe zine has the power to transform you into an Ethiopian cooking maven, and if you already have mad Ethiopian skills and know-how, you'll find recipes to make magical dishes you've never seen or tasted before.

The recipes are 100% vegan and gluten-free, and all but a few can easily be soy-free as well. Chapters include: Ethiopian Info, Essentials, Appetizers, Salads, Sides, Allecha Recipes (mild stews), W'et Recipes (spicy stews), Mixin' it Up!, Leftovers and General Info.

If you don't know how to cook Ethiopian food, or have never had the opportunity to try this cuisine before, everything is clearly explained within--beginners will quickly become assured masters.

  1. Do you have copies left of the original Papa Tofu as well? Like could I buy that and this one at the same time?

    :)

  2. Hi Heather!
    I am currently out of Papa Tofu, and not sure I am going to print anymore. When I finally get this third zine done, I will probably run a short press of maybe 20, so I can sell a few three set options.

    I think Food Fight still has a few...

  3. Hiya kittee! I am ready to plunk down my momo for this masterpiece, but the buy button just keeps taking me to my paypal account summary and not a buy screen.

  4. Also - I think you should start writing up snazzy crochet patterns and selling them on ravelry. Crochet is my next craft to tackle :)

  5. Hi Kittee! Will it be for sale at any place in Portland?

  6. Hi N!
    I'll sell you one myself! I'm also trying to get a table at the Portland Zine Symposium.

    But it'll also be available around town in a few weeks.

  7. Awesome Kittee, thanks for answering!

    Considering I know I want all three of the zines, I might just hold off so I can get all of them. I can't wait until the xgfx one comes out (even if, technically, the Ethiopian one is xgfx too)!

  12. I have been waiting for this for *months*, and I am so, so happy it's arrived. I'm going to buy a copy from you at VVC and bring my 1st Papa Tofu with me too for you to sign, if that's okay with you.

    Thanks so much for making such an amazing effort, Kittee!

  22. Hey kittee! I make weekly meals for a small handful of friends in Atlanta who are too busy to cook and insist on eating my creations. This week I dove right into Papa Tofu! I linked to you on my blog in the hopes that some of my readers will buy your wonderful little book. Thanks for introducing my to the world of Ethiopian food! The Ethiopian women at the farmer's market where I shop were totally amused! My pictures are at cracktheplates.com/2011/09/meal-deliveries-week-two/. We LOVED the azifa!!!!

  23. Hey Kittee, I am considering getting your ezine but wondering how spicy your recipes are since Ethiopian can be both mild and spicy. I am kind of averse to the super spicy berbere. ;)

  24. I really want this! But I prefer to not have to join Paypal... Is there another way I can pay for it? I can't find your email address to ask you so I hope you see this.

  26. Fancy seeing you here! I didn't know you were vegan! I recognized your avatar from Rav! I think I've read for you! :) I was carried here via a vegan blog on wordpress that lists the Ethiopian Ghee! I'm making it tomorrow! I hope you're well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is really delicious Ethiopian food!!!!!! I may not need to eat out half as much now :)

    When my friends think I'm a rockstar at dinner parties, I'll be sure to pass the credit your way!

  28. This looks so cool! I would totally buy a PDF of it!

  29. YeeHaw - I just got my copy yesterday! I am very excited to get cooking.

    Great cookbook and great resource on Ethiopian food - I think I may finally be able to understand a restaurant menu.

    Thanks again

  30. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I'm trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
