      One of Scott’s favourites. I’m sure he’d be happy to have Friday tofish ‘n chip night each week!

    What’s a stubby of beer? Thanks

      Hi Kathy – sorry that must be an “Aussie” thing :)
      A ‘stubby’ is a short glass bottle used for beer.
      I usually open whatever is in the fridge & if I don’t use it all, then I enjoy a small beer whilst cooking.

      Cheers,

    I made this last night. I added chives, onion powder and garlic powder to the batter. It was lush! I also marinated the tofu for 2 days. Will def be making it again! Thanks!

      Hi Angela,

      I LOVE the idea of adding the onion, garlic & chives! Thanks – I think I’ll try that next time myself :)

      Cheers,
